Classic and vintage car clubs can now enter to display their vehicles at the 2024 Magnificent Motors in Eastbourne.

The motoring spectacular – with free admission to the public – returns to the Western Lawns on Eastbourne seafront over the Bank Holiday weekend from Saturday 4 to Sunday 5 May next year.

Established as one of the biggest free motoring shows on the south coast, Magnificent Motors hosts a unique selection of vintage and classic cars, commercial and military vehicles, motorbikes and more – with funfair attractions throughout the weekend.

Star cars range from turn of the century vintage heirlooms, classic coupés and revered retros to modern day high performance sports cars and a display of the latest electric cars from local dealers. 

Many of the classics on display have appeared in films and television dramas, had famous owners, are rare or come with a fascinating back story, with owners on hand to reveal more about their history.

The site is open to the public from 10am and 5pm on both days and thousands of visitors attend the event.

Entries are now open until Sunday 7 January 2024 for car clubs and other motoring organisations to enter.

Clubs can express their interest in displaying their members’ motors at the event by completing the online form available at

Councillor Margaret Bannister, Eastbourne Borough Council’s Lead Member for Tourism, Leisure, Accessibility & Community Safety, said, “Magnificent Motors is a firm favourite for residents and visitors who always enjoy this free exhibition of beautiful cars, motorbikes and more.

“This is an opportunity for car clubs and other motoring groups to express their interest in exhibiting and I would urge them to do so before the deadline of Sunday 7 January to avoid disappointment.”

Registration for individual car owners will open on 15 January.
