Buckingham Palace Scooter Run


 Powered by Max Banner Ads 

Whitsun weekend is the TIMEBOX WEEKENDER which incorporates the BUCKINGHAM PALACE SCOOTER RUN that started life in the early eighties by Tony Class and the Phoenix Society and was resurrected a few years ago by the New Untouchables and Bar Italia Scooter Club. The meeting place is the iconic London landmark Carnaby Street where by early Saturday afternoon the whole street is full of Lambrettas and Vespas.

The route takes us through many of the Capitols tourist hot spots and iconic shopping streets turning heads and filling the air with two stroke fumes as we go. The final destination is the home of TIMEBOX CLUB; The Strongrooms in the Shoreditch district, with its huge car park with ample parking for 300 scooters it’s the perfect venue to host the alldayer.

From 3pm-3am entertainment includes live bands, DJs, scooter competition accompanied by sumptuous food from the BBQ all yes all for FREE!

The bank holiday Sunday we return to an old Mod venue the Phoenix in Cavendish Square behind Oxford Circus for a Northern Soul night from 9pm-3am. This Soul cellar with wooden dancefloor, air conditioning and great DJ line-up is the perfect way to round off a great weekend in the Capitol.
