Sheffield gets in a spin for Record Store Day

 

Sheffield record shops have been preparing for Record Store Day being held this Saturday.

Events are being held across Sheffield with live performances and charity auctions taking place during the day.

Spinning Discs on Chesterfield Road will be hosting an event to celebrate the day and encourage local people to buy vinyl.

The event starts at 9.30am and will include food and drink from The Bhaji Shop and Tramshed. There will also be street art from local sculptor Simon Kent.

Live music will be playing from 10.30am next door at the intimate wearefolk.space venue.

The day is now in its eighth year since it was started by Metallica in San Francisco and maintains its goal to celebrate vinyl and its unique culture.

Over 200 independent record shops will be taking part in the day giving vinyl lovers the chance to get their hands on hundreds of exclusive vinyl releases from artists all around the world.

Record Collector in Broomhill is expecting the same turnout this year as the hundreds of people queued outside in previous years.

Other record shops across the city, such as Record Junkee, on Cambridge Street, and Vinyl Demand in Charter Square, will also be taking part.
