Jak and Nicola Utley opened the vinyl emporium in the town’s hip Hermitage Road last October, and they’ll be marking their first birthday this Saturday with live DJs, special offers and more.

The DJs will spin in-store from 12 noon to 4pm, and there will be special one-day offers and more – including the launch of a new Gatefold Gold Membership.

Nicola told the Comet: “We’ve enjoyed every second of our first 12 months since opening the doors – from the hectic opening weekend, to collaborations with so many talented DJs and street food vendors, an amazing Record Store Day event, and all of the wonderfully supportive people we’ve had the pleasure of meeting.

“We’d like to take this opportunity to say a huge thank you to our truly awesome customers for all of their support. We can’t wait to celebrate with you.”
