A RADCLIFFE record store is championing the value of vinyl and buying music locally this weekend.

Classical Times Antiques and Collectables on Blackburn Street has been allowed access to the ground floor unit next door, which is being used by the council's Radcliffe regeneration team, to promote National Record Store Day on Saturday.

There will be a DJ performing and there will be a tombola which will have records as prizes and any profits made will go to Ukraine.

As well as records, CDs, music DVDs and memorabilia like t-shirts and programmes will be on sale.

Steve Curtis is helping to organise the event

He said: “People are given tickets to visit their local record store and it’s meant to help the local shops and stop the supermarkets selling all the albums.

“Vintage vinyl which is the record department of the classical times is currently on the top floor of the antiques centre on Blackburn Street and you don’t get much footfall up there and it’s hard for access.

“The regeneration team have very kindly let us have use of their building for the weekend which will be so much better.”

People can just turn up to the free event on Saturday with visitors able to arrive from 9am to around 6pm.
