Leicester music fair attracts enthusiasts from across the country
VINYL sales were given a boost in Leicester at the weekend when hundreds of traders from across the UK visited the VIP music fair.
Held at the Y Theatre in East Street on Saturday (January 12) the sale offered fans and collectors a chance to get their hands on some of the rarest and
collectable music related vinyl, CDs and DVDs.
Among the big purchases of the day was the sale of a Japanese Beatles red vinyl LP, which went for £80.

Trader Andy Halstead, who had travelled from Accrington in Lancashire, said: "This is a really good fair. The organises do a lot of work to make
sure plenty of collectors turn-up. Which is not easy because they can be quite lazy these days, thanks to the internet and sites like Ebay. "
Andy, whose most valuable item for sale on the day was a Japanese Metallica LP for £400, said there was still a huge market for vinyl.
He advised anyone looking to get their own collection valued to buy the Rare Record Price Guide, or a similar publication.
The VIP Music fair returns to the Y Theatre again on May 18, October 26 and December 14.
Admission is £2 and the fair runs from 10am - 3.30pm.
