Note that on Sunday 25th August, there is also the QUADROPHENIA MOVIE 40Th ANNIVERSARY EVENT, which is an all-day event featuring members of the original movie cast. This is separate from the main weekender (but still in Brighton), with details and tickets details found here.

  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?
