About

IMG_1455Giddy Brighton is an exhibition that explores teenage memories from the post-war years in Brighton & Hove, launched as part of Brighton Festival 2016, alongside the release of the Giddy Brighton app. Archive images and film accompany oral histories, vividly reawakening Brighton & Hove life during the mid-20th century. Visit the exhibition to hear lived memories of Brighton & Hove; first kisses, endless dances, adventures and exploits.

Giddy Brighton app contains interviews and images, gathered by students at Longhill High School from the Mass Observation Archive, with support from The Keep’s collections, Royal Pavilion and Museums, Screen Archive South East and local residents, with additional archival images from The Argus, Brighton, and QueenSpark Books’ Brighton & Hove Photographic Collection.

Giddy Brighton is a Brighton Festival commission, with support from the Heritage Lottery Fund.
