Vespa & Lambretta exhibition

A new exhibition called "Ready, Steady, Go!" opens tomorrow (Saturday 13th May) at the Chelsea Space examining the history of Vespa and Lambretta scooters and their influence on British culture.

The exhibition includes advertising and posters from Innocenti and Piaggio, films and photographs and a rare Vespa from the 1950s.

There will also be a scooter rideout tomorrow ending in the piazza in front of the gallery. Music will be supplied in the piazza from Noon onwards by one of my favourite DJs - Dave Edwards (compiler of the Trojan Mod Reggae boxsets)
