The biggest record fair in the South West is back at Bristol Beacon and spread over three floors of our Bridgehouse with up to seventy dealers. Traders from all over the South attend the event, with buyers from as far-afield as Japan, Russia and Poland.
The fair is mostly vinyl, (LP, 12” and 7”), with a few CD traders selling hard to find and discounted titles. You’ll find everything in the hall from £1 bargains to expensive rarities, and dealers specialising in most genres of music from the fifties to the present day.
Decks are available to check out tunes before you buy and a cafe/bar for a break from browsing. Feel free to bring tunes to trade or sell, most dealers are happy to strike a bargain.
40s Swing, 50s Rock and Roll, 60s, 70s, 80s, Acid House, Acoustic, African, Alternative, Big Band, Blues, Breaks, Cheesy Dance, Country/Americana, Dancehall, Disco, Drum n Bass, Folk, Funk, Hip Hop and more.
