Classic scooter exhibition

Vespags_1 If you want to find out about and view classic Vespas and Lambrettas, you need to get down to Chelsea Space, which is hosting Ready, Steady, Go! - an exhibition covering the style, fashion, people and events associated with Italian designed scooters and their impact on British culture over the last 60 years.

The exhibition includes a range of exhibits from the life of the British scooter - images and drawings of the earliest scooter models, advertising and posters from Innocenti and Piaggio, original films including those of scooter stunts and gymkhanas, photographs of scooterists past and present, "scooter" clothing (whatever that means) and accessories, plus a rare Vespa from 50s and an insight into scooter designs for the future.

It all kicks off on Saturday 13th May at 12pm with a scooter procession which ends  on the Piazza in front of the gallery.
