Record Store Day 2021
As Banbury's ONLY INDEPENDENT RECORD STORE, we are pleased and excited that Strummer Room Records will participate in Record Store Day Drops 2021 on Saturday 12th June & Saturday 17th July.
In 'normal' times, Record Store Day is the one day of the year when over 200 independent record shops all across the UK come together to celebrate their unique culture. Special vinyl releases are made exclusively for the day. Many shops and cities host artist performances and other events to mark the occasion. Thousands more shops celebrate the day around the globe in what’s become one of the biggest annual events on the music calendar.
With vaccines on the horizon, Record Store Day organizers around the world look forward to the future, but recognize that in 2021, the world’s biggest record store party needs some adjustments to make it as successful for as many participating indie record shops as possible.
Due to the location of our shop, we are looking at innovative ways in which we can make both days memorable for customers who will visit us. We will liaise with our landlord and neighbours to ensure the day runs smoothly and is enjoyable for all attending.
We will still be under some restrictions related to Covid-19 on 12th June, so need to ensure that we adhere to the rules in place at that time. Hopefully Drop.2 will be a bit more relaxed, but hand-sanitizer will still be required and face coverings are advised.
The Lists of specially created titles coming to record stores as part of the RSD Drops dates will be launched soon.
