Tour 3 of Jonny Smith’s The Late Brake Show heads to Manchester on 6 November 

Jonny Smith, motoring enthusiast, journalist, TV presenter and walking car-encyclopaedia, continues to embrace the thought-provoking, curious and simply unexpected as he takes The Late Brake Show On Tour to the iconic Manchester Central on 6 November.

Fans of The Late Brake Show will see many of the cars featured on the show’s popular YouTube channel, with over 315k subscribers, in the amazing hall space while the entire first floor of the venue’s car park will be dedicated to the car-munity’s display cars. 

From ‘Barn Finds’ and ‘Projects of the People’ through to the very latest hyper cars and electric scooters that bookend the Late Brake spirit, Jonny and his team will bring to life the high and low octane blend of his on-screen love for quirky classics, stunning custom-builds, ambitious projects, lost loves and future car technology.  

‘Show’ cars will be announced on the Tour’s webpage and across the channel’s social pages over the coming days and weeks, but fans can be assured of a yet another brilliant celebration of auto-eclectica.

And of course, it wouldn’t be The Late Brake Show without the famous ‘tatty’ brown leather chairs making an appearance, to set the scene and frame the stage for an ‘Idol Chat’.  Jonny will be settling down for a Manchester chat with Top Gear and Grand Tour scriptwriter Richard ‘Sniff Petrol’ Porter, giving the audience the chance to ask those burning questions they have always wanted to. The pair will also host the ‘Jonny and Richard Car-Pub’ quiz with proceeds going to the charity Mind.
