Mods 19:64 - shaping a generation - Soul Sunday
16, June 2019

lunchtime food for the soul, 60s soul music + Mod-inspired dance performance
a REVIVE Festival event

“Anybody who was a Mod will probably say the same thing, that it had an incredible effect on us all and it has stayed with us throughout our lives. The whole thing was about style; style in what you do, what you read and what you wore...” Terry Wilford

1964 was the year when Mods and Rockers fought on the beaches of southern England and Mod philosophy exploded unapologetically into UK mainstream culture. For many, life would never be the same again.

Mods 19:64 is a stunning black and white photographic exhibition that captures Leicester and Nottingham Mods from that remarkable year as they are today in 2019 – 19:64. Hosted in the Lightbox Gallery at LCB Depot, most of the images were taken outside iconic Mod related buildings in both cities such as the Dungeon nightclub in Nottingham and the Il Rondo in Leicester. Photographs by Joe Nixon (Arch Creative). Words by Shaun Knapp.
