Free entry tickets for this year’s Magnificent Motors are available from this week with the event gearing up to be a fun-fuelled vehicle extravaganza.

It takes place on Saturday 30 April and Sunday May 1 at the Western Lawns on Eastbourne seafront and is the springboard for a packed summer schedule of events and a great way to spend the Bank Holiday weekend.

The event boasts more than 600 vintage cars, bikes, and buses on display and on both mornings the festival begins at 11am on the seafront Western Lawns.

There will be a wide variety of vehicles on display at this year’s show and visitors will have the chance to look under the bonnets and chat to the owners too.

The festival will also include several classic car clubs too and once again this year there will be an area dedicated to the ‘Cars of the Future’ where a variety of electric and hybrid vehicles will be on display with experts on hand to advise visitors about how to make the switch to alternative fuel technologies.

Eastbourne Borough Council’s Lead Member for Tourism and Culture Cllr Margaret Bannister said, “Magnificent Motors kicks off the summer events season here on the Sunshine Coast and it really is a magnificent day out for all of the family.

“It’s a much-loved event for car enthusiasts and families alike and there’s plenty of things to see and do whether it’s admiring the hundreds of classic vehicles, browsing the seafront market or enjoying some quality food and drink in the great outdoors.

“Once again, this year the event will take on a slightly different format, with ticketed entry, ensuring that numbers can be managed safely and to allow the communication of any essential updates around Covid-19 to ticketholders. We strongly advise spectators to register for their free entry tickets in advance to ensure quick and fuss-free access to the event.”
