Gladrags and Gearsticks

This year we are encouraging vehicle owners to really get into the vintage spirit of the weekend and to come dressed in the era of their car, bus or motorcycle!

Each day of the event the 'best dressed' will be chosen by either the Mayor of Eastbourne or local MP, Stephen Lloyd and there's prizes to be won too!

Whether your vehicle evokes the retro vibe of the swinging 60's, the glamour of the 1940's or perhaps something even older - we'd love to see your stylish take on vintage fashion as part of the 'Gladrags and Gearsticks' competition.
