As you might recall, there were limitations place on last year’s event, But with the government promising a ‘back to normal’ for the summer of 2021, there are high hopes that the year’s event, effectively a rerun of what we expected in 2020, will take place in full.

You can see the flyers breaking down the individual events here, but if you want the full details in writing, I have those too. Also, if you want to see photos of past events, do check them out in the gallery section of the site.

The official dates for the Brighton Mod Weekender are the 26th – 30th August 2021.

Tickets are on sale now for our main evening events held at Brighton’s Komedia, which is just a few doors down from Brighton’s Jump The Gun (which is always worth a visit). Note that Komedia has a large wooden dance floor, air conditioning and two bars.

Daytime events:

The daytime events take place at the Volks, which is around 200 yards east of Brighton Pier. The Volks has a well-stocked bar and serves food all day on the outside terrace.

Entry to the daytime events is free and also family-friendly on Friday, Saturday and Sunday. There are daytime sessions from noon until 6pm with DJ’s along with a market selling records, vintage and bespoke clothes, art and memorabilia. If you want a stall or a DJ spot, contact the New Untouchables.

Note that Sunday afternoon is the Scooter Competition, which is held outside the Volks between 2pm and 3pm. This is followed by a ride-out to Smugglers Rest in Peacehaven. The route for that is:

Head EAST on Madeira Drive (away from ‘Sealife’ Brighton)
and ride all the way to the up ramp.
Turn right onto Marine Parade.
Continue along Marine Parade/ Lewes Road over the roundabouts.
Turn right into Smugglers Rest pub car park

If you want a ticket for the evening events, you can pick them up at the New Untouchables website.

Love Modculture? If you enjoy what you read or have benefitted from it and want to help with the ever-increasing costs of the site, you can always buy me a coffee.

  3. I woz MOD in the 60’s. I’m now living in Brighton!

  4. Hi I have had a novel, East Coast Blues, published which is set on the east coast and is about a young man coming of age in the 1960s. It covers the music, fashions, tensions-and work conditions of the era. The story goes beyond the usual mods and rockers myths and addresses some uncomfortable truths about those days. It has received 5 star reviews on Amazon and is available on Kindle and from book shops. Would you be interested in promoting this through your web site?



  5. Bill Chamberlain

    Hey John,

    Only just seen your message, please get in contact, is there a movie in your story/book ?

  6. Ian Davis

    I am not a “MOD” but I do love the music. I have a Honda Dominator converted into a Cafe racer, would it be ok to come along to your event ?



  7. Would definatly be interested in these events.
    I am a 25 year old who grew up with my grandad who was a Mod and i think the culture has ran through to me

  8. Lord Robert Rae Sutherland of Glencairn

    In all my years as a Mod, this will actually be my first weekender. Would it be possible to purchase an access all areas pass/band so we don’t have to pay at the doors or have to wait hours just to be told “sorry, we’re full, no room”
