Thousands of scooters are expected to be driven into Leek this month for a large-scale annual event.

This year is the 10th anniversary of Scooter-Fest presented by the North Staffs Jesters Scooter Club. The event will take place on Sunday, May 18.

Co-organiser Steph Knott said: "Scooter-Fest appears to get bigger year on year with scooterists and local visitors helping to make the event one of, if not the biggest, one day event on the Scootering calendar, and certainly one of the biggest events in Leek.

"The format for May 18 is pretty much the same as previous events. Staged in Silk Street and the Trestle Market, the event will include the largest market-style fair to date with around 40 stalls offering scooter parts, modern and vintage clothing with all the high street brands – Ben Sherman, Fred Perry and Lambretta – records and CDs, and the usual food outlets of Hog Roast, burgers and bacon butties."

There will be a ridden custom show displaying a host of scooters that have been restored, customised, chopped, or just made to go a lot faster.

Some of the engineering, engraving and artwork has to be seen to be believed, as too is the amount of money spent modifying these machines.

As usual there is no entry fee to Scooter-Fest and visitors are requested to purchase raffle tickets on the day with proceeds going towards hosting next year's event.
