The popular record store played host to the event that featured DJs playing music from around the world on Saturday.

Cult Hitchin style-icon and hairdresser Felix Camfield-Walker, owner of Farley’s Hair Emporium a few doors down, was on the decks spinning ska tunes, afrobeat, old-skool hip hop and Nigerian disco.

The afternoon also featured the mouth-watering falafel dishes of Hitchin chef Martin Burke as part of his pop-up middle eastern street food kitchen, as well as summer punch and craft beers.

Jak Uttley, joint owner of Gatefold with his partner Nicola Uttley, said afterwards: “Thank you to everyone who made our World Food and Music Day a huge success and awesome fun.”
