The evening will feature discussions, presentations, demos and live music, all in a very relaxed and informal atmosphere.

An evening to socialize, share, talk and enjoy!

A glass of bubbly on arrival and nibbles will also be provided.

Saturday 17 August, 11am-5pm

Everyone has (at least!) one CD, vinyl or cassette in their collection they are embarrassed about… but is it really that bad? Come and see if you can swap it for something worse!!! We will facilitate this special music swap-shop between 11am and 2pm. Note: Maximum of 2 items per person.

This will be followed by our very own Audiophile Question Time with an experts panel who will share their knowledge on the music process: From making music to capturing it, producing and distributing it. Come and join artist Steve Adey,  sound engineer and owner of Sonata Hi-Fi Rob Wilson, engineer and cables expert Michael Whiteside and Linn Records for what promises to be an exciting and interesting afternoon which will conclude with a live music set.

Any specific topic you would want to hear about? Let us know!

Sunday 18 August, 12pm-4pm

We will wrap up the weekend with a Classic Album Sundays session. Join us from 12pm for some refreshments. At 2.30pm, the lights go down and the volume goes up: switch off your phone, sit back, listen and immerse yourself in this communal and audiophile listening experience.

Fleetwood Mac’s Rumours has been voted for our Classic Album Sundays session.

Rumours is Fleetwood Mac’s most successful album. Released in 1977, it won the Grammy Award for Album of the Year in 1978. The record has sold over 40 million copies worldwide, making it one of the best-selling albums of all time. Rumours has received diamond certifications in several countries, including the US, Canada and Australia.

As the name suggests, Rumours was made during a period of deep internal struggles within the band and inter relationship issues which led to a lot of whispers and contributed to the lyrics, mood and emotions of this timeless production.
