The Brighton Mod Weekender 2021 details have been announced, taking place over the four days of the August Bank Holiday.
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.
