The Nomad arrives in Brighton, the spiritual home of the Mods, for one night only and a special screening of this British cult classic.
Loosely based on The Who’s rock opera of the same name, Frank Roddam’s 1979 movie is a vivid portrayal of teenage angst, joy and disillusionment, set to a soundtrack so rocking it will melt your face off. Phil Daniels plays Jimmy, a working class lad from London whose dreary existence as a post room worker is only escaped when he takes to the streets on his shiny Vespa and joins his fellow Mods to descend upon Brighton for a bank holiday weekend of skirmishes with his gang’s most fierce rivals, the Rockers (booo!). We follow our hero as he faces up to some serious lessons in life and love, culminating in an outrageous and cool-as-Christmas climax.
We’ll be setting up camp in the grandstand of Brighton Racecourse – so bring a deckchair, a cushion and get there early to grab a limited edition pin badge (for the first 500), and a good spot under the covered area.
There is plenty of free parking, and you’re welcome to bring your own picnic and alcohol. There will also be hot and cold food on sale and a fully licensed bar on site.
Join us to celebrate the release of The Who’s Quadrophenia: Director’s Cut Boxset (coming 14th November - click here for more info…)
