Record Store Day is the one day of the year when over 230 independent record shops from across the UK, and thousands more globally, come together to celebrate their unique culture and the art of vinyl. Now in its 13th year, Record Store Day continues to shine a light on the bricks and mortar retailers that play such vital roles in celebrating culture and music in their communities. So we are delighted to be the official charity partner this year and use the energy from this amazing celebration of the independent record store to help change the lives of children whose lives have been torn apart by war. 


Record Store Day takes place on Saturday 18th April and is supported by BBC Sounds, please visit www.recordstoreday.co.uk for more info
