A firm fixture in the Brighton calendar, August bank holiday will see the Mod Scene return to its spiritual home. NUT’s Brighton weekender was voted the number one weekender in the UK by Mod Generation readers in 2011 and 2012. A really good buzz has been building since the turn of the year, last year’s event will be hard to beat but we will have a jolly good go and have some exciting plans up our sleeve. Brighton is the most popular UK seaside resort so we suggest you book hotels now.
