Mossley Mill Gets Ready To Roar

22 July 2015

The Mayor, Councillor Thomas Hogg is joined by EAOVC Chairman, Norman Neill as they launch the Belfast to Portrush cavalcade taking place on Sunday 2 August in aid of the Lighthouse charity. Approximately 100 classic cars will be on display at Mossley Mill until they depart at 10.30am.


The East Antrim Old Vehicle Club (EAOVC) is gearing up for its 14th annual Belfast to Portrush cavalcade which starts at Mossley Mill on Sunday 2nd August in support of Lighthouse Suicide Awareness.

This is an event not to be missed with an amazing range of vintage and classic cars on site at Mossley Mill from 8am to 10.30am before the cavalcade makes its way to Portrush. This year’s event will see approximately 100 cars gather ahead of its journey which will end with a static display at West Strand in Portrush.

The cavalcade event has been a roaring success every year and the club, since its formation in 1995, has raised over £50,000 for various charities. This year’s chosen charity is Lighthouse, which provides assistance to those bereaved through suicide or other types of sudden death.

Mayor of Antrim and Newtownabbey, Councillor Thomas Hogg commented, “The East Antrim Old Vehicle Club has had a long and successful history in these fundraising events and I wish them every success in what is an exciting opportunity to display a brilliant collection of vintage and classic cars. I hope that their fundraising efforts are fruitful and that plenty of people turn out to see what is sure to be a fantastic display of vintage and classic cars at Mossley Mill.”

Spectators can watch the cavalcade at different points en-route and enjoy the range of 1920’s to 1980’s vehicles such as Austin 7’s, Morris Minors, MG’s, Triumphs, and many others. The run is open to vehicles registered on or before 31st December 1993.
