Welcome to the official website of the East Antrim Old Vehicle Club
The East Antrim Old Vehicle Club was formed in 1992 and is based in Carrickfergus. Club meetings are held on the first Tuesday of each month at 7:30pm in the Loughshore Hotel, Carrickfergus.
Join now to enjoy all the benefits of the club. You will be invited to all of our runs and events. We welcome all ages of new members and will be very happy to hear from you
The club is non-sectarian and is a non-profit making organisation. In the summer months beginning from April, the club organises different runs taking in most of the countryside of the province. The club has been responsible for organising the Portrush Cavalcade since 2001. We have more than 100 vehicles taking part and well over 200 people attending the dinner at the end of the day. This event has now become the main charity event with over £80,000 raised for local charities since the club took on the event
Among the founding members of the club were Eric Lynn, Dennis Higginson, John Magill,George Dornan, Mick Dowey and Billy Peoples, father of current club member William who is organiser for this event.
The club's first few meeting were held in the home of Dennis Higginson before moving to the Courtaulds Club.
A few years later, The Fergus Inn, was opened and the club had found a permanent home.
This, after a few name changes and a lot of renovations over the last 20 or so years, is now the Belfast Loughshore Hotel, Carrickfergus and the current home of the club as well as hosts for tonight’s Anniversary Gala Dinner Dance.
This hotel has hosted our Annual Dinner Dance for most of the 25 years of the club but this year has helped us really push the boat out.
