We are delighted to welcome John Roe Group as the sponsor of the acoustic stage in the VIP tent at DocksFest!

John Roe Toyota has been a long-term collaborator with Docks Beers and we are really pleased that this partnership has been extended to include DocksFest.

John Roe founded his business in 1969 when he opened John Roe Motor Sales in Grimsby. Two years later, he was awarded the Toyota franchise and sold 80 new cars in his first year as an official Toyota dealer.

To this day, John Roe continues to be a family-owned and run business, operating four car dealerships and two franchises across North Lincolnshire, North East Lincolnshire and East Yorkshire.

We are thrilled to have this truly local business on board as a sponsor of DocksFest 2024 – North East Lincolnshire’s premier live music festival. You can expect to see their friendly team and Toyota vehicles represented at the festival on Saturday 6th July.
