New Venue for Eastbourne's Magnificent Motors 2011

Due to the popularity of the event, The 8th Magnificent Motors has moved location to Eastbourne's Eastern Seafront and Princes Park (BN22 7PR), enabling greater enjoyment for those wishing to showcase their vehicles and for visitors alike. The reasons for this move are primarily to offer our exhibitors a safe, flat grassy area.

Magnificent Motors will continue to offer a great weekend for classic, vintage and veteran vehicle exhibitors as well as stunning spectacle for the 20,000+ visitors who attend each year. Again, in 2011, organisers, look forward to welcoming exhibitors of cars, motorcycles, bicycles, military and commercial vehicles as well as buses.

Come along on Saturday 30 April and Sunday 1 May 2011 and join other JEC members Display and view the array of static displays as well as attractions including:

  • JEC Raffle Car (Sat)*
