Get on board a floating record shop

Bobbing around on a canal near you...

Where: The Record Deck

We’re all aware of the sad demise of the record shop due to the rise of internet downloads and increasing rents. So here’s an idea - why not set up a store on a boat? Not only is rental cheaper but it can move up and down riverways attracting different crowds of people to its kooky location. The Record Deck is one such venture, stocking second hand CDs and vinyl, and moving all over the UK. Recent moorings include the Regent’s Canal by Victoria Park and the River Lea by Springfield Park, and it’s also set to appear at music festivals like Field Day in the summer.

Here's the 2015 London schedule:

  • River Lea, London : 1 Jan – 1 April

  • Regents Canal, London : 6 April – 2 May

  • Field Day Festival, Victoria Park, London : 6-7 June

... after that, it's off around the country.
