The Quadrophenia Experience with Roger K Burton & Alan Fletcher

"One Saturday we were approached by a film art director who was looking for original 60s clothes for a forthcoming movie about Mods called Quadrophenia, which was backed by The Who. He wanted to know if we could supply them…" Roger Burton

Join Roger K Burton and Alan Fletcher for a talk and Q&A on their lives as Mods in Leicester and Nottingham during the 1960s and their roles within the cult film, Quadrophenia.

Newark author Alan Fletcher wrote The Mod Crop Trilogy, a trio of books based on his life as a Mod in Nottinghamshire during the 1960s. Alan also wrote Quadrophenia (the novel) and was a story consultant on Quadrophenia (the film).

One of the most established and well-known costume designers in the UK today, Roger K Burton has worked in music videos, television, films and commercials since the late 1970s. With over 50 years' experience of collecting vintage street fashion, Roger supplied original clothing to the 1979 cult film Quadrophenia before establishing the Contemporary Wardrobe Collection which provides street fashion to TV and film.

Tickets for the Q&A event £5, to book please contact the museum on 0116 225 4920.

A special Q&A event as part of the Mods: Shaping a Generation - Exhibition Opening Day! event at the museum. For more details on the exhibition visit:
