The Italian Job Summer Extravaganza

Organisers hope to attract a crowd of around 35,000 people to an event in Saltburn this summer.

The lower promenade in Saltburn will play host to The Italian Job on July 1.
The free classic car and air show has been organised by Saltburn Events Committee.

Stunt driver Russ Swift will head up a cast of 120 classic Minis in a celebration of the classic British movie.

The day will also include a number of air displays and many food stalls - including an Italian wood burning oven providing pizza.

A “Banksy-style” street art mural dedicated to the movie will be on view, together with a cast of “mix and mingle” actors entertaining unsuspecting onlookers.

And it has been confirmed the original Minis from the film will be making a special appearance.

“As it’s free - and such a good event - we need to let everyone know about it” said organiser Glenn Pearson.

“Saltburn Events Committee was formed for the purpose and intention of organising free large-scale events in the stunning location of the resort. We want to create a positive effect on people’s lives.”
