A series of two short films of Leicester and Nottingham Mods were created by Arch Creative, alongside young people from Soft Touch Arts and students from DeMontfort University.
The films features Former Newark and Nottingham Mod Alan Fletcher, who was a story consultant on the cult film Quadrophenia and wrote the novel of the same name, and also Roger K Burton, former Leicester Mod who supplied the costumes to the film.
View Alan’s story about the Mod Scene in Nottingham and his reflections about his involvement with Quadrophenia. Keep a look out for the next films coming up in the series.
