Record Store Day

 

Record Store Day 2022 Stock is now online! View what we have left here: Record Store Day 2022

 

Record Store Day is the one day of the year when over 240 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 and cities host artist performances and events to mark the occasion. Thousands more shops celebrate the day around the globe in what’s become one of the biggest annual events on the music calendar.

The event was conceived in 2007 at a gathering of independent record store owners, as employees wanted a way to celebrate and spread the word about nearly 1400 independently owned record stores in the US and thousands of similar stores internationally. The first Record Store Day took place on April 19, 2008. Today there are Record Store Day participating stores on every continent except Antarctica.

This is a day for the people who make up the world of the record store—the staff, the customers, and the artists—to come together and celebrate the special role these independently owned stores play in their communities.

The Rules

We are not permitted to reserve a product for customers so you will need to visit us on Record Store Day to purchase your product.

We are bound by the Record Store Day code of conduct which prohibits us from reserving the product for customers or allowing customers to pre-order product.  Record Store Day is about the occasion and visiting the store is part of the enjoyment so our best advice is get up early and check with us in advance that we have your product.

The Day

We will open the store at 8 a.m. for RSD purchases. 

  • Please ONLY queue at the Obelisk Way doors (from Park Street) of the shopping centre (by The Bear / Sony Centre)
    • If you queue at any other entrance door to the shopping centre, you will be at the back of the queue
  • Refreshments (warm drinks & bacon rolls) will be available to purchase  from Frenchies Dessert Parlour (located by the Park Street / Obelisk Way doors) from around 6 am.
  • The doors of the centre at Park Street / Obelisk Way will open between 7 and 7.30 am.
  • Once inside, security will guide you but the queue will form at the doors of the store back toward the Park Street doors (tensa-barriers will guide).
  • Please bring the printed PDF list of what you’d like to help us pick your order
  • No cash on RSD. We accept card payments, Record Tokens & Rock Box Gift Vouchers
