Events that take place on Madeira Drive but which do not happen annually. They may happen more than once
This event is in the One Off Event category though it was, in fact, a regular event on Madeira Drive until a few years ago when it moved to Peterborough. It was really a busman's / buswoman's holiday, an industry event during which coaches were shown and judged, coach builders put on exhibitions, drivers got the chance to enter a competition over a short course, and there was a gala dinner and dance at one of the seafront hotels.
In 2014 the Sand Sculpture Festival returned to Brighton at Black Rock with a theme of Around the World in Sand. It had previously been in here in 2005 and 2006. Huge figurative sculptures are on display, made out of nothing but compressed sand - the right sort of sharp sand. The sand is mixed with water and then compressed into blocks of sand which is contained in wooden frames. The frames are then removed.
The Austin 7 was a British economy car built and sold between 1922 and 1938. It was the most popular car of its day in Britain, and it also sold well abroad, where it was often made under licence.
The Morris Minor was a very popular, small family car built in Britain between 1948 and 1972. During that time more than 1.3 million were manufactured. Perhaps the most iconic of the car styles that were sold was the wood framed estate car, the Traveller.
