Croydon Record Fair this September

Croydon Record Fair returns to the south London borough this September with jazz records, memorabilia and other curiosities on sale

This autumn’s Croydon Record Fair takes place at Fairfield Halls, Croydon from 9.15am-4pm on Sunday 28 September. As ever, records, phonographs, memorabilia and chat, mostly jazz-related, are the order of the day. A bar and café are on-site and free live music will come from the Mike Pointon Quartet, featuring Duncan Hemstock. Admission is £3 and stalls are available for those with stuff to sell. Enquiries to 01256 462218 or

Organisers Dave and Anne Bennett also advise of two concerts by Bob Wilber & Sammy Rimington’s International Jazz Band, at Basingstoke Irish Centre (30 September) and Concorde Club, Eastleigh (1 October). Dave enclosed fascinating early photos of Bob, including that pictured with Sidney Bechet.
