The Scomadi Scooter Festival

The Scomadi Scooter Festival will take place at Whittingham Sports and Social Club this Friday and Saturday as a two-day weekender to celebrate Preston’s own iconic Scomadi scooter brand with displays, a ride-in and music that will also help boost Rosemere Cancer Foundation’s 20 Years Anniversary Appeal.

Local scooter enthusiasts will join others from throughout the country making camp at the club, where there will be a show area, trade and food stands.

On Saturday, up to 70 scooter riders are expected to set off from Old Nell’s on the A6 at 12.30 pm to take part in a ride-in to the festival, which is being held to mark the first anniversary of the Scomadi’s launch last year.
