For Vinyl lovers Record Store Day is more exciting them Christmas, New Years and Valentines put together. Pie & Vinyl haven’t disappointed with their plans for this years event on Saturday 19th April.

Then on Wednesday 16th April, Pie & Vinyl will be transformed into Pie & Film for the night. They will be showing the award winning record shop documentary Last Shop Standing.

On Friday 18th April the whole road is joining forces to celebrate the Castle Road Fete from 11am to 3pm. The Castle Road Fete will be celebrating one of Southsea’s finest locations and all that it has to offer. Stalls and market traders will be out in force along the road, selling their unique and wonderful gifts. Bands will be playing throughout the day, perforers include Brighton based Common Tongues, plus more acts for TBA. If you would like to be involved and have a stall then email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 07414 715157.
Then finally Record Store Day itself on Saturday 19th April. As always there will be lots of limited edition highly sought after items. The team are unable to reserve any item, take direct orders or cheeky bribes. We would recommend getting down there early to avoid disappointment as there will no doubt be a queue of customers waiting for the store to open at 11am. For a list of the limited edition releases check out the Pie & Vinyl website HERE. You can find out more about what Record Store Day is and it’s rules HERE.
There will be musical entertainment courtesy of my long lost sister Emily Barker & The Red Clay Halo. More artists to be announced soon. Lets not forget throughout these events you can treat yourself to a tasty pie.
Wow, so this is going to be an action packed week and I for one cannot wait!
