Lord Mayor backs Vespa World Days 2018
3 May 2018
Lord Mayor of Belfast, Councillor Nuala McAllister, is proudly backing the launch of Vespa World Days 2018 which will come to Belfast’s Titanic Slipways from 14-17 June.
3,000 Vespas are expected to descend on Belfast’s Titanic Slipways as participants from over 37 countries worldwide gather to celebrate at this exciting weekend of events.
Vespa World Days 2018 is sure to have something for everyone with live music and entertainment, an artisan market and a delicious food village all provided as well as planned Ride outs throughout the weekend to the iconic Ulster Folk and Transport Museum, Crumlin Road Victorian Gaol and the historic coastal town of Carrickfergus to visit the 800+ year old Norman Castle.
There is also more to this event than all the excitement the Vespas are sure to bring, as Vespa World Days 2018 also strive to support two local charities through this event, East Belfast Mission and Air Ambulance NI.
The Lord Mayor said: “I am delighted to launch Vespa World Days 2018 in Belfast and proud to welcome such an exciting global event to Belfast’s iconic Titanic slipways."
“With such a fabulous array of events and celebrations planned throughout the weekend I would encourage everyone to get involved and join in on the fun,” added Councillor McAllister.
Mark Cooke, Vespa World Days 2018 Director, said: “With only a month to go until the Vespas start to arrive at Titanic Slipways the excitement is really starting to build for what will be a fantastic family weekend
“We are extremely grateful to have the support of Belfast City Council, Visit Belfast and of course the Lord Mayor. We would now like to encourage the people of Belfast to get behind us too and come along to join in on everything Vespa World Days 2018 has to offer.”
