Rotation Record Fair

Artwork by Moody June 

This July we’re bringing something special to Ancoats General Store… A Record Fair Party! You’ll be able to listen and buy the music you hear, drink, dance and even take your purchases home in a one-off tote! 🎶👯‍♀️

Led by MCR Live & Rotation Record Fairs, in association with Camden Town Brewery and Ancoats General Store, you can expect not only a collection of hand-picked vinyl from the best sellers in the North but exclusives from local labels you won’t be able to find anywhere else. 👀

Sellers including: Dig Deep Records / Vinyl Lovers / SPACEDUST Records / Behind The Booth

These carefully selected vendors have spent years digging in the crates themselves & have a huge offering of records! We also have listening stations so you can give that record a quick spin before purchasing!


Expect a multitude of music for sale including boogie, funk, disco, soul, nu disco, edits, latin, jazz, house, techno, DnB, hip hop, and afrobeat, as well as rock, indie, prog, folk, blues, reggae, and dub!

Carrying on this ethos of ‘no-genres-barred’, the event will be soundtracked by our favourite vinyl spinners across a range of genres – from Funk to Disco to House and everything in between. If vinyl isn’t your thing and you just want a boogie, grab a pint and get involved! 🎧

Ft. CULT (MCR Live) / FOY (Alga-Rhythms) / Jerk It (MCR Live)/ Darryl Marsden (Ghetto Child / Liverpool Disco Festival / Melodic Distraction) / Andy Shake’N’ Fingerpop (Peek A GrooveMCR Live) / Tony Pablo (SPACEDUST) / Reiss Johnson (Kingpin MCR / MCR Live)
