March of The Mods 2020

  • Description

  • Dates & Prices

On Saturday 28th March organisers of the very popular March of the Mods event will be aiming to break the world record for the world’s longest Nutty Ska Train dance, popularised by the band Madness.

Its hoping upto 500 people will line-up to ska dance along Ryde Seafront beating the current unofficial record of 423, its all to raise money for Teenage Cancer Trust and Tonic Music for mental health.

As part of a national event that runs every weekend in March, the IOW leg is the only one that does an actual march going from venue to venue with dj’s and live music at each. 100 percent of all donations goes direct to the charity as all the artists play for free, with over £26,500 raised on the IOW so far & £600,000 nationwide.

It’s always a great day, a fantastic busy atmosphere with some great music. Its free all day but we hope everybody buys a £10 Day wrist band or evening a £5 evening one to support the charity and respect the artists that are giving up their time to make the day work.

The day starts at 1pm Ryde Pavilion with Dj Kath Tan followed at 1.30pm by Tonics Ska Choir with an hour of some of Ska’s biggest tunes sung live by the UK’s No1 ska choir.

2.30pm is the start of the World record attempt, so we ask everybody to arrive by latest 2pm to register you name, so if we can break the record you will be include and with a small donation receive an official certificate.

The event then carries on after the record attempt with everybody welcome, at The Esplanade Hotel then back at Ryde Pavilion for a whole host of great bands and DJ’s from across the Uk.
