Magnificent Motors over the years

Highlights from Magnificent Motors 2014 

Reaching maximum capacity on Sunday, Magnificent Motors was full to the brim with over 300 cars on Saturday and over 400 on Sunday.

Visitor numbers also reached a record high with 30,000 attending over the two day show, with the ‘Folk is not a Rude Word’ music line-up on stage proving particularly popular on the Saturday. A red converted London Routemaster bus provided a motoring themed licensed bar and the Continental Market near the Pier provided a wide range of stalls for visitors to browse.

The festival which is jointly organised by Eastbourne Borough Council, Eastbourne Historic Vehicle Club and East Sussex Omnibus Society regularly attracts over 600 classic and vintage vehicles, including cars, motorbikes, scooters, buses, military and commercial vehicles.
