Jim Mullen for Croydon Record Fair

Jim MullenThe spring 2012 edition of the twice yearly Croydon Record Fair takes place at Fairfield Halls, Park Lane, CR9 1DG on Sunday 29 April.

Live music has been a feature of recent fairs, but this year the event steps up a gear with sets from the trio of bassist Dave Green (sometimes spotted at the fair in collector mode) with ace Scottish guitarist Jim Mullen (pictured, by Gordon Sapsed) (1-4pm) - surely worth the price of admission alone!

As well as offering a comprehensive range of jazz and blues on 78, LP and CD (even last September, on wax cylinder), the fair is a collectors' social event in comfortable surroundings with refreshments available.

Admission is £3.00 from 9.15am, £2.00 from 12.30pm, and close is at 4pm. Stalls and half stalls are available for for £42 & £27 respectively. Enquiries to 01256 462218 or blackbird@waitrose.com.
