The fair is located in the brand new foyer building of Bristol's oldest established concert hall. Now spread over four floors, the venue offers a light and spacious environment which has proved increasingly popular with the public and traders alike since our first event in 2010.


Entry is free to the public from 10am to 4pm, with multi-storey parking next to the venue. There are three large lifts to all floors and an excellent cafe & bar.


Traders from all over the South attend the event, with buyers from as far-afield as Japan, Russia & Poland.

Our fair is mostly vinyl, with a few CD traders. You'll find everything in the hall from £1 bargains to expensive rarities, and dealers specialising in most genres of music from the fifties to present day.


Our thanks again to all traders and buyers for your continued support.

Ground rules on the day

Please avoid blocking access and fire exits when loading and unloading. Do not leave your vehicle parked unattended for long periods to allow everyone the chance to gain access.

Traders may set up from 7am onwards, though early arrivers should avoid any interruption of the fair set-up process, for obvious reasons.

The use of extra space or tables and the rearranging of stalls allocated is at our discretion at all times.

Please don't abuse the good will shown by us when doing so if you wish to attend in the future. If in doubt - ask.

The playing of music is welcome, assuming any request to lower the volume by either us or the hall staff is respected and observed.
For all traders sake, any suspicion of theft should be reported to us or the hall staff without delay.

All trading stops at 4pm, please load in good time to facilitate the clearing and cleaning of the foyer ahead of evening events.


Thank you.
