A RADCLIFFE record store is championing the value of vinyl and buying music locally this weekend.
Classical Times Antiques and Collectables on Blackburn Street have been granted access to the ground floor unit next door, which is used by the council’s Radcliffe Regeneration Team, to promote National Record Store Day on Saturday.
There will be a DJ playing and there will be a raffle with record breaking prizes and all proceeds will go to Ukraine.
In addition to records, music CDs, DVDs and memorabilia such as t-shirts and programs will be on sale.

He said: “People are given tickets to visit their local record store and this is to help local stores and prevent supermarkets from selling all the albums.
“Vintage vinyl, which is the department for records from the classic era, is currently on the top floor of the Blackburn Street Antiques Center and there’s not a lot of foot traffic up there and it’s hard to find. ‘access.
“The regeneration team have very kindly let us use their building for the weekend which will be so much better.”
People can just show up for the free event on Saturday, with visitors able to arrive from around 9:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.
