22 May 2004
The "Battle of Brighton", in which mods fought pitched
battles with rockers at the South Coast resort, took
place on the Whitsun bank holiday in 1964. The events
inspired The Who's album, Quadrophenia, and the film

will be taken to Brighton for the event.
Further Quadrophenia walks will take place on 5 June,
3 July, 7 August and 4 September - though without the
