The biggest ever collection of The Jam memorabilia - 'About The Young Idea', launches in its spiritual home of Brighton on 1st and runs through until 31st August 2020. Situated on the iconic beach location made famous by the 1979 cult film Quadrophenia and as featured on the cover artwork of seminal Jam album 'Setting Sons'.
Expect to wander through an Underground station 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 "About The Young Idea" to Brighton this year with the biggest collection of Jam memorabilia on show- just a stones throw from the last ever live gig at the Brighton centre in 1982".
