We’re very excited to partner with RSD UK for their 10th anniversary. This partnership has come at an opportune moment for the charity as we expand our reach across the UK, with an office in Belfast and plans for one in Scotland later this year. Increasing the charities presence across the country is vital to our vision, which is to reach all musicians and to let them know that we’re here to help.
The partnership will also raise awareness of our current campaigns, our funding schemes, and the work we do to support artists throughout their careers.
RSD 2017 takes place on Saturday 22 April and is a celebration of independent record shops across the world. It’s the one day of the year when over 200 independent record shops all across the UK come together to celebrate their unique culture. Hundreds of labels and artists celebrate the day by releasing special vinyl products that are exclusive to the participating stores.
Many shops and cities also host events and performances to mark the occasion. They also work throughout the year to celebrate independent record stores by spotlighting exclusive releases, events and special news.
All proceeds from the sale of the turntable will be donated to HMUK, so take a look through the pictures, visit our eBay page and happy bidding!
