From an era when Vinyl was king and the stereo ruled! Experience the Magic! May £11,605 now raised after just 21 events!!! Following our Iconic Tubular Bells event (see blog below) its back to our usual venue, Starling Bar Cafe Kitchen, for February & March - details below

A unique opportunity to listen to classic vinyl albums, artists & music on magnificently restored vintage Hi-Fi just as the artists intended together while raising funds for Friends of Harrogate Hospital & Community Charity.  


We aimed to raise £10,000 but we have blown the ceiling! Here is to the next £10,000 for equipment to enhance patient care not available from NHS funding. - EVERY PENNY RAISED GOES TO THE NEONATAL 3 WAY MONITOR APPEAL - FULL DETAILS AT EACH EVENT


 Each session will feature a specific album, artist or music style at a number of venue locations in the Harrogate area. Enjoy the experience on powerful vintage audio equipment , Sony, KEF, Monitor Audio, Marantz, Goodmans, Sansui, Trio and more from the golden era of Hi-Fi – the 1970s.


 Our mission – Over the coming months each Vinyl session will feature a classic album, artist focus or music genre. The events start at 7.30pm and begin with a presentation on the music from a special guest then a brief summary of the audio equipment. At approximately 8.00pm we play the album in full, no distractions (talking and mobile phones not welcome!) to  focus & enjoy the music as it was meant to be. Finally it’s time for social chat and any questions – after all you are all fans so you will be in great company!


 Admission is by donation (suggested £5) and Friends of Harrogate Hospital can claim gift aid.

For our March event we present a 1990s classic


Its hard to believe this album was released in October 1992 yet still sounds crisp and never out of place in 2020, where has time gone?


From the era when vinyl was loosing momentum at an alarming rate as the CD was hailed as the new hero. Not here though - we will be playing the full album and some well known bonus tracks on our fave format!!!


This 8th studio album spawned 5 singles alone when the band  were at the height of mainstream success
