Welcome to the Mods & Rockers Film Festival Website!
The festival started from small beginnings in 1999 and it has grown to become arguably the most respected annual rock 'n' roll film festival in the world. (Or not according to the envious rivals who have copy-catted our format and attempted to emulate us!)
In 2010 the festival is spreading its goodies out in two tasty servings.
The main festival this year will be at the end of August - dishing up four spectacular nights crammed with rock 'n' roll movies to delight the palate.
And in late September/early October we are presenting a four-day Mods & Rockers Special Festival in celebration of the 70th anniversary of John Lennon's birth.
Sign-Up for an email alert about the Lennon Film Festival.
