March of the Mods mini-festival comes to Huddersfield on Sunday 23rd March reports the Huddersfield Examiner

March of the Mods is coming to Huddersfield, offering 14 live bands over a day of rock fun.

The ‘modfest’ is being hosted at The Irish Centre on Sunday, March 23.

Hometown heroes The Killermeters are lined up to co-headline with The Chords UK.

Top support comes from indie rockers Redstar with a host of other bands and DJs including Alan ‘Glory Boy’ May and Mick the Mod.

The gig, which starts at noon, is part of a national campaign featuring 50 towns and cities who are hosting events all to raise funds for Teenage Cancer Trust.

Last year the events raised £50,000 and organisers are hoping to double the amount this year.

Organiser, Jason Taylor, said: “This is a big deal for Huddersfield as we haven’t ever had anything like this before with bands coming from as far as London and Wales to play.

“Even bands like The Strypes have got involved by donating things to auction off.

“We also have appearing the original Lambretta scooter that was ridden by Jimmy in the seminal film Quadrophenia by The Who.”

In true Mod style, the concert will feature a scooter ride-in with trophies, a raffle, stalls and food and drink.

The event is also sponsored by Barclays bank who have vowed to match fund the sum raised for charity.
Tickets £10 from Jason on 07407 437500 or, or Alan on 07947 866697.
