December’s Record Club: CHRISTMAS SOCIAL

XmasSocial2016.jpg

On Thursday 8th December, it’s our second Glossop Record Club CHRISTMAS SOCIAL.

Kicking off at 8pm at Glossop Labour Club, it’s our end-of-year blow out – a chance to get together, have a chat over a pint about music and put the world to rights. Well, maybe not that last bit.

Of course, vinyl will be at the heart of the night with the team from ALL FM’s Charity Shop Classics on hand to spin some of their favourite charity shop finds throughout the evening. Feel free to bring down any records you want to get onto the turntable too.

And as it’s Christmas, we’ll also have a bit of fun with a music quiz and Secret Santa.

If you want to take part in Secret Santa, you’ve gotta give to receive! Here’s how it’ll work:

  1. Choose a record, ideally an LP, maybe from a charity shop, a secondhand shop or even a spare from your own collection. Don’t spend more than a fiver.
  2. Don’t just get any old tat! It has to be something you wouldn’t mind having yourself. And please check that the record is in good condition. We don’t want any damaged styli!
  3. Wrap it up, bring it with you to record club and pop it in the Secret Santa record box.
  4. If you’ve put a record in, that means you’ll get one back! We’ll do the draw before the end of the session.

Easy! If it’s not clear, just get in touch.

And don’t forget, there’s a Glossopdale Foodbank collection point at the labour club, so please bring along a food donation if you can. More details here: http://glossopdalefoodbank.info/how-to-help/donate/

So. That’s a music quiz. Secret Santa. Charity Shop Classics DJ set. Bring Your Own Vinyl. Beer. And you!

See you there.

Christmas Social… what happened

The idea of doing some sort of social night has been lurking at the back of my mind since the early days of Glossop Record Club. Why did it take so long? It just did! But a message from Darren a couple of months ago about doing such a thing was the catalyst I needed, and what better time than Christmas. So thanks Darren.

And what a night! A busy and bustling labour club and top tunes from Gavin and Tim of All FM’s Charity Shop Classics, complete with the music quiz (were the questions too hard?!) and the Secret Santa record box. What did you get? I hope you all received a record you’ll enjoy. I got a David Bowie record!

I brought my camera to take some photos throughout the night, but as usual forgot to take any. Apart from one. On my phone. Here it is.

Big thanks to the following for generously donating the prizes for our quiz: Birds Hit Records, Gizeh Records, High Street Records & Books, Defiance Sessions and Charity Shop Classics. Thanks also to Gavin and Tim from Charity Shop Classics for DJ skillz and their help with the quiz. Couldn’t have done it without you.

And of course thanks to everyone who came along, bringing records for Secret Santa, records to play and food donations for the Glossopdale Foodbank.

We’ll be back on Thursday 7th January for a night of British Blues with Peter Carefoot. More details soon.

All that’s left to say is Happy Christmas and see in you 2016. Best wishes to you all. Shall we do it again next year?

MUSIC PLAYED

You know what, you had to be there! But if you have any photos of your Secret Santa records or just from the night in general, send ’em through. Thank you.

On Thursday 10th December, it’s the first ever Glossop Record Club CHRISTMAS SOCIAL.

Kicking off at 8pm at Glossop Labour Club, it’s our end-of-year blow out – a chance to get together, have a chat over a pint about music and put the world to rights (naturally).

Of course, vinyl will be at the heart of the night with the team from ALL FM’s Charity Shop Classics on hand to spin some of their favourite charity shop finds throughout the evening. Feel free to bring down any records you want to get onto the turntable too.

And as it’s Christmas, we’ll also have a bit of fun with a music quiz and Secret Santa.

  1. Choose a record, ideally an LP, maybe from a charity shop, a secondhand shop or even a spare from your own collection. Don’t spend more than a couple of quid.
  2. Don’t just get any old tat – it has to be something you wouldn’t mind having yourself. And please check that the record is in good condition. We don’t want any damaged styli!
  3. Wrap it up, bring it with you to record club and pop it in the Secret Santa record box.
