Suzuki GB is backing one of the UK’s most high profile comedy festivals.
It is supporting the launch of Dave’s Leicester Comedy Festival, which runs from today to February 21, by providing five fully liveried range-topping S-Cross SZ5 crossovers to the event.
The fleet of cars will be used for the duration of the annual and rapidly expanding festival that brings together stand up, theatre, exhibitions, children's shows, and lots of laughter.
They will be at the heart of the extensive logistics operation to transport officials and comedians between the 780 shows which are located in more than 60 venues across Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland.
To celebrate the collaboration, the Sturgess Suzuki dealership in Leicester will be hosting a (S)miles Per Gallon Comedy Club event at its Aylestone Road showroom on February 11, the first initiative of its kind to take place in the UK. That event will raise funds for two local charities - Heartlink (Glenfield Hospital Children’s Charity) and The Laura Centre, which helps bereaved families.
Dale Wyatt, sales and marketing director at Suzuki (GB), said: “We are delighted to be supporting one of the country’s most high profile comedy festivals with the stylish S-Cross.
“Offering plenty of space for the driver and passengers alike, coupled with a comprehensive list of equipment as standard, they will certainly prove a valuable addition as they are put through their paces across the region to help deliver performances from some of the best loved personalities.”
