more info for 2021 when we have it

Q. What is Record Store Day (RSD)
A. It is the one day of the year when hundreds of independent record shops all across the UK come together to celebrate their unique culture. Special vinyl releases are made exclusively for the day and many shops host events to mark the occasion. In addition thousands more shops celebrate the day around the globe in what’s become one of the biggest annual events on the music calendar

General VOD Music guide for RSD

•Shop open at 8am until 4pm on Record Store Day .
•All RSD product is sold on a first come first served basis, in store only.

If there is a title(s) you are desperate to pick up on the day we recommend you
get to the shop early to get as near to the front of the queue as possible.

There will be a exclusive FREEBIES for the first few customers.

Remember that all RSD titles are extremely limited and although we will do our very best to get multiples of any we have in for the day it is not always possible due to incredible demand from Record Stores across the Globe.

Good idea to write down what you are after and list a few other options just in case.

We will list anything that is arriving for the day on our RSD page, so be sure to check this before joining the queue.

Confirmations are listed in the run up to RSD with a price list viewable the night before the day. We always aim to sell as cheap as we  possibly can. A physical price list will be also available on the day and its generally handed down the queue to browse before getting to the counter. Those with Smart Phones or Tablets can check our Website RSD page online.

Wear suitable clothing if joining the queue early as it can be abit nippy early in the day and open to the elements. Should it rain,  we can put our Shop canopy up if required and there is some cover under nearby shop overhang which very handy - where the queue lines up....hopefully though this wont be necessary.

A: As titles are even more limited than RSD and fewer releases it will be 1 of each title up to a maximum of 5 titles.But it is OK to rejoin any queue if you need more than 5.

Q: Can i Pre order? A: No items can be reserved, purely on a first come first served basis.

Note, whilst this is not RSD, with Black Friday titles so limited if you are desperate to pick up something of the list it is a good idea to get to the shop ahead of opening time

Once priced take that as confirmation they will be at our shop on Black Friday but most likely just ONE or TWO of each with the odd exception due to very limited UK numbers of each title....

2021 BLACK FRIDAY TITLES...maybe additions before the day

Note almost are just one or two of each due to limited amount arriving to the UK.

* Finally, its November so 8am starts can be on the chilly side so make sure warm clothing is too hand.
