During the pandemic the sale of records was on the increase even outselling CD’s.

Barnard is hoping that the resurgence of love for the old school form of music will bring more people to the fair.

“There are a lot of new collectors,” he continued.

“People are still wanting to buy records despite streaming services being so popular.

“I would encourage any people new to the hobby to come down on Sunday.

“Buying records in person is better than online because you can see what you’re getting at a record fair.

“You can make sure the record is in good condition - some vendors will even let you play them before you buy.”

Shopping online brings dangers of records being fake or damaged and Bernard said he knows of many people who have had to send records back when they arrive in poor condition.

“I think people have missed the record fair events,” he said.

“I hope lots of people return and enjoy it.”
