John Parsons is based in Bognor Regis, a seaside resort town in the Arun District of West Sussex on the south coast of England, 55.5 miles (89km) south-west of London, 24 miles (39km) west of Brighton and 5.8 miles (9km) south-east of Chichester.

Bognor is one of the oldest recorded Anglo-Saxon place names in Sussex. In a document of 680AD it is referred to as Bucgan ora, meaning Bucge's (a female Anglo-Saxon name) shore, or landing place.

The suffix, "Regis" (of the King) was granted by King George V who, having convalesced in the resort after an illness and surgery, is reported to have said of the town (in conflicting stories) "Bugger Bognor".

Bognor is home to the "International Bognor Birdman Rally", an annual competition held each summer when contestants launch themselves from the end of the pier in an attempt to glide far enough to claim a prize of £1000. Competitors have included Sir Richard Branson (who possibly wasn't doing it for the money).

During the last weekend of July, every year, the free "Rox Music & Arts Festival" is held, featuring many genres of music in 7 performance areas over 2 days. Past headline acts have included The Fun Lovin' Criminals, Hugh Cornwell (of The Stranglers), Neville Staple (of The Specials), The Selecter and The Blockheads.
