Or­gan­is­ers to give record fair an­other spin in Jan­uary

Bray People - - Wicklow Film Club Premiere -

A SEC­OND record and CD fair looks set to take place in Wick­low dur­ing Jan­uary fol­low­ing a suc­cess­ful fair in the Grand Ho­tel last week.

The good weather meant or­gan­is­ers didn’t quite at­tract as many cus­tomers as first hoped, but things still went well enough to stage plans for a sec­ond fair soon.

The col­lec­tion in­cluded ev­ery­thing from mu­sic from the 1920s and 1930s on 78s to ev­ery­thing that is cur­rent at the mo­ment in dance, hip-hop, rock, clas­si­cal, world and coun­try mu­sic. Ba­si­cally if you like a par­tic­u­lar genre, then you were bound to find some­thing to tickle your fancy.

DJs hop­ing to find that long lost clas­sic record that would liven up their set min­gled with old timers keen to track down some vinyl that they once owned but could no longer track down.

Usu­ally three fairs are held over 16 to 17 week­ends na­tion­ally, and the Grand Ho­tel should be play­ing host to an­other fair come the end of the year.
