Fairfield Halls to host record collectors fair
Record shops might be dying out but the clamour for those old school vinyls and gramophones is still very much there.
Later this month more than 60 specialist stallholders will descend upon Fairfield Halls to showcase a vast range of recorded music, literature, gramophones and other collectables.
The fair has been going at Fairfield for well over 20 years and for the last four years it has been run by Anne and Dave Bennett.
Mrs Bennet says: "Originally it was primarily for those interested in jazz, blues and classical records but, although this still forms the bulk of what is on offer there are also dealers with stocks of such as rock 'n' roll and other kinds of popular music.
"All formats are catered for: CDs, LPs, 78s, DVDs, books, magazines and various ephemera. All budgets are catered for and surprisingly low prices are often asked.
"The atmosphere at every fair is friendly and conducive to making useful contacts. It needs to be said that useful as Ebay is, making purchases is far more economic and enjoyable."
Croydon Record Collectors Fair, Fairfield Halls, Park Lane, September 29, 9.15am to 4pm, £2-3, call 01256462218 or email firstname.lastname@example.org for more details.
