The Freemantle Hall hosts Bexley Record Fair this weekend


With vinyl sales figures at their highest in 10 years, why not pop down Bexley Record Fair at The Freemantle Hall, in Bexley High Street, Bexley, this Sunday to boost your collection?

Richard Day, 67, the fair’s organiser for three years, recognises that demand for the Vinyl LPs has increased – even though he still prefers CDs.

“We sell a load of vinyls,” said Mr Day, of Erith. “It is CDs for me because of the weight but there has definitely been a resurgence in vinyl demand without a doubt.”

Mr Day says the record dealers who come to his bimonthly fair cater for most tastes – whether it be CDs or vinyl.

“We tend to have near enough of everything in each genre, but not rap or charts music,” he adds.

“There are plenty of golden oldies from the 50s and 60s.”

Bexley Record Fair also boasts the lowest admission charge in the country at just 50p.

“For anyone living in the area it is lovely and local,” says Mr Day. “There are good transport links, including a bus service and train.

“I enjoy meeting people – most customers are really knowledgeable. You never know what you are going to find.”

For more information call Mr Day 01322 836254.
