Around 20 vehicles are expected to attend and provide regular trips including Open Top Services to Beachy Head, Birling Gap and East Dean, seafront rides to Princes Park and the Sovereign Centre as well as journeys through the Sussex countryside to Bexhill, Hailsham and Pevensey Bay. There is also to be a recreation of the 1970's Eastbourne 'Town Tour'.
