The annual Ribble Valley Mod Weekender has came around again. Once more the streets of historic Clitheroe, Lancashire, were taken over by scooters, Fred Perry polo shirts and Dr Martens boots.
I love the smell of the two-stroke exhaust from the scooters as they ride into the town. Everyone is so proud of their wheels, and there is real effort to dress and act the part. At times the event can be busy and it’s tough to get good pictures, but I came away with a few I’m very pleased with.
For anyone interested in participating in the event or viewing more pictures, there is a Facebook page and an Instagram hashtag. It takes place every September.
A couple of years ago I attended the Ribble Valley Mod Weekender in Clitheroe, and got some wonderful photographs of the goings-on and attendees.
I have assembled these into a Mod Revival documentary project, and plan to work on this over the coming years as I attend other similar events and attempt to learn more about the mod subculture.
