Whether you’re a collector or browser, music for all tastes is promised in all formats from a hall full of dealers and sellers at the halls, along with memorabilia, books and posters as well. 

The idea of hosting a record fair came out of a conversation between Public Halls manager Glenn Povey, who freely admits to spending far too much on vinyl records than is really necessary, and fellow collector and Halls patron Nick Turner.

“The first record fair was a great leap of faith as we had no idea if there would be much interest,” says Glenn. “Nick spread the word about through his contacts and within a very short time I’d sold all of the tables – mostly to very reputable dealers but also to private individuals who were having a spring clean. Even Empire Records in St. Albans had a table, which was a great endorsement.”
