’This Is The Modern World’
The Ultimate exhibition of previously unseen The Jam & The Style Council Memorabilia
The biggest ever collection of previously unseen The Jam & The Style Council memorabilia – ’This Is The Modern World’, launches in its spiritual home of Brighton on Saturday 30th July 2022 and runs through until Monday 31st August 2022.
Expect to witness the band’s formative years in the ‘Stanley Road room’, including Paul’s own school books and archive family photo’s from the early years. Each room will include iconic items from each year of the band’s career with the ultimate vinyl collections together with a mass of memorabilia and the band’s instruments, including Paul’s iconic Whaaam! guitar and stunning mod-wear flanked by customised Jam scooters.
Nicky Weller comments, “If you’re a Jam fan there’s every single thing you can possibly imagine, if you’re not a fan it’s still interesting as far as social history goes. If you’re just a music fan it’s just a noisy fun exhibition”.
She continues, “I’m so excited that we will be taking “This Is The Modern World” to Brighton this year with the biggest collection of previously unseen The Jam & The Style Council memorabilia on show- just a stones throw from the last ever live gig at the Brighton centre in 1982″.
The most comprehensive exhibition about this extraordinary and influential band – This Is The Modern World – is the ultimate exhibition for The Jam & The Style Council memorabilia –
Produced by AGMP and sponsored by Visit Brighton.
Exhibition open daily from 11-8pm.
