The annual spring meet of scooter riders returns to the Isle of Wight on Sunday 28th May with Isle of Wight Lambretta Day.
Lambretta Day was an established in 1999 as a meet-up to launch Lambretta Clothing at a local clothes store. The first event was attended by around 20 scooters riders; it has grown into an annual event with over 300 scooters from local and visiting clubs, as well as solo riders.
Ride Out from Newport
If you have a scooter, why not join the Ride Out from Newport Quay (meet at noon – 28th May), riding to Ryde Pavilion cafe bar on the seafront.
There’ll be trophy presentations for the Best Turnout Club, Best Lambretta, Best Vintage and Best Overall Scooter. Lambrettas, Vespas, vintage and modern scooter riders all welcome.
And if you haven’t got a scooter you’re still welcome to come along and enjoy the atmosphere and entertainment.
There’ll also be BBQ; a beer tent; 60s, Soul, Ska, and Mod DJs, as well as live music from 1pm til 1am.
As always there’s a great line-up of live music with Three Minute Heroes, Liam Hodge, Kyle Chapman, Butterfly Collective (The Jam, The Who, The Small Faces, The Beat), X-Directory (punk, new wave), & one of the UK’s finest ska outfits – Ska Dogs with two-tone and original ska classics.
