REGENCY TO ROCK ‘N’ ROLL – A LATER HISTORY OF BRIGHTON & HOVE
This course will consider the later history and expansion of Brighton & Hove, concentrating on social and cultural aspects, fashions, fads, architecture, famous inhabitants, Regency life, piers, leisure, work, cinema, wartime and rock ‘n’ roll Fifties. We discuss early cinema and Hove’s pioneer film-makers, and consider other magical qualities that make seasides special, for example piers and the sea.
Wartime in Brighton had a profound effect on the town and The Fifties brought rock ‘n’ roll, coffee bars and youth culture.
