Giddy App Launched!

GiddyWalk vicariously down memory lane with Giddy, a treasure trove of memories of teenage love, hope, loss, and rebellion.

The Mass Observation Archive is pleased to announce the launch of the Giddy app. The Archive worked on the Giddy project with students from Longhill School who used MOA and ESRO Brighton collections at The Keep to learn about the lives of teenagers in Brighton in 1940s, 50s and 60s.

Giddy Brighton exhibition launched on 7 May, 4-6pm, at the Theatre Foyer Gallery, University of Brighton, Grand Parade BN2 0JY.

Giddy Brighton is an exhibition that explores teenage memories from the post-war years in Brighton & Hove, launching 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.
