Welcome to the Bristol Modernist, 60’s and scooter weekender 2024 page where you’ll find all the information you’ll need for your fantastic weekend in one of the UK’s finest cities. Bristol 2024 is sponsored by www.modclothin.co.uk.
This, our 5th weekender sees us once again take over the city with fantastic events, killer line ups, people with impeccable taste, cool stalls and wonderful scooters. Talking of which in 2024 we celebrate the scootering side of our lifestyle. Cramming in not just a huge Saturday afternoon gathering by the river and a scooter cruise around the city but an exhibition in a converted church and grounds raising money for Prostate Cancer UK and The British Heart Foundation.
As usual the fine Bristol Mod Scooter club will be leading the charge around the city on Saturday taking the riders past its historic monuments ending up at our daytime event at Totos by the river where there is ample parking space to show off the scooters in the sun shine.
The Classic scooter show takes place on Sunday. If you are interested in exhibiting your scooter please get in touch – Pre 1980 models only. Thanks.
With all that cool 2 wheeled action going on we just had to come up trumps with the entertainment to match and we are proud to present you with 4 events over the weekend with Live music and DJ’s.
Part 1 – (NOW SOLD OUT) Friday night – 7pm – 1am – The Louisiana – BS2 6UA
We kick off the weekend action at The Louisiana. We usually host our daytime events at this venue but we thought it was about time we ramped it up. For 2024 we have DJ’s from legendary south west clubs Heavenly Blocked, Go Go Children, Splash of Soul, Glastonbury Soul Club, Ain’t Necessarily Soul and Brighton’s Mod ‘n’ Soul playing all the biggest Mod and soul tracks over two floors. We have a surprise guest joining us for this evening too.
Part 2 – Saturday Daytime – 12-5pm – Totos by the river – BS1 6HU
Totos is right on the riverside in the heart of the city. A perfect way to while away a Saturday afternoon. It’s the place where all the scooters will hang out and fantastic music will be played. The scooter cruise will leave from the famous water tower at Durdham Downs and return to Totos for photos, it’s the perfect backdrop for it, there will also be a competition. Your musical tastebuds will be tickled by our live offering of the weekend in the shape of The Original Gravity Allstars from Original Gravity records backed up by some of the scenes true power house DJ’s. If shopping is your thing the upper floor will be dedicated to our market holders Modclothin, Jaymokid Art, Suit Yourself Music and many more.
Part 3 – Saturday night – 8pm – Late – Totos by the river – BS1 6HU
This is our main event if you are into dancing and dressing up, both floors of Toto’s will be buzzing with some of the biggest DJ’s on the scene. This unique riverside venue was such a hit in 2023 we had to have it for 24 but we are going one bigger by booking both floors and filling it with your favourite DJ’s. There is nothing quite like a night time venue that overlooks the river with the city lights twinkling in it whilst you’re dancing with pals to your favourite tunes or chilling riverside with friends old and new. This will be a truly magical evening.
4 – Sunday day – 10am – 4pm – The Trinity Centre – BS2 0NW
To finish off your weekender in Bristol we decided to do something a little special. Our classic scooter show will be held in The Trinity Centre, a spectacular converted church with stunning grounds. Within the church we will be showcasing classic Vespa and Lambretta scooters and more. A bar will be open and we will be having stalls and DJ’s. Exhibitors will be showing off a mixture of show winning scooters and their much loved steeds all in a good cause raising money for Prostate Cance UK and The British Heart Foundation. The Trinity Centre is located near the bottom of the M32, 1 mile from the city centre so ideal for popping into on your way home or spending the day admiring the Italian splendour. Your full weekend wristbands includes entry to the show but Classic scooter show only tickets can be bought through the website.
