Thousands of CDs, vinyl and more in Digbeth
The Custard Factory in Digbeth hosts Birmingham Record Fair
Ever have that longing to find an old favourite album or rare 12" vinyl from an obscure band but can't find it on the internet or in any shop? Many a music fan has felt that same remorse, but there is a glimmer of hope as a huge record fair heads to Birmingham.
Thousands of vinyl records, as well as CDs will be available while live music creates a vibrant atmosphere. Everything from reggae to prog rock, northern soul and hip hop is being sold by specialist traders.
Doors open for the event in Digbeth, Birmingham's trendy bohemian area, at 10am. Entry costs £2 but visitors who arrive late after 1pm will be allowed free entry - but don't leave it too late as the fair closes at 3.30pm.
