Welcome to Eastbourne's Magnificent Motors

Covid-19 Update


Due to the Covid-19 situation, the Eastbourne Events team have taken the difficult decision to cancel Magnificent Motors, with no suitable options for alternate dates in 2020. We fully hope to return as normal in 2021.

Gladrags and Gearsticks

Every year we encourage 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 as part of our 'Gladrags and Gearsticks' competition. 

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.
