Brighton Mod Weekender

'Mods Weekender' - an event where hundreds of Mods descend to their spiritual home to celebrate their fashion, scooters and music. I took photos of their gatherings outside the Volksbar and then got a photo pass for the 'Quadrophenia Experience’ hosted by 'Big Screen’, where the film was shown on a 40 meter wide LED screen on the beach'. Towards the end of the film I walked up to Marine Parade to take some ‘aerial’ shots of the film sequences where the West Pier was featured with the West Pier as a backdrop. 
In attendance were Quadrophenia film stars: Gary Shail, Trevor Laird and the film's leading actor Phil Daniels (+ Park Life and Eastenders), who had never attended a public screening of the film before. They held a Q&A after the film. Bands such as Ska Faces, Who’s Next also performed at the event.
The next day I took photos of a scooter ‘rideout’ to Saltdean,
