Sheffield snow causing low turnout at vinyl events

A series of vinyl fairs have seen low turnout over the weekend due to the heavy snow in the north including Sheffield.

AA Record Fairs have been holding events for 30 years but because of the heavy snowfall across the UK this march they have seen a recent low turnout.

Adrian Wells and his brother Andy Wilkinson, 51, owners of AA Record Fairs, have done events all across the midlands and have an event on most weekends with the next one being at The Moor Market this Saturday in Sheffield, and are hoping for a bigger crowd.

Adrian said: “We have lost a few traders from Manchester, Leek and Stoke due to road closures and general safety concerns, therefore we have been lower on numbers.”

AA Record Fairs have been working with the Moor Market for just over a year now and are expanding this year to include 10 extra 6ft by 3ft tables for more traders to come along and will be buying and selling records from 9am to 4pm.

Adrian stressed the “difficulty setting up a record store in Sheffield because the council are hard to work with”.

But after a year of negotiations are happy to find a permanent home in the Moor Market, adding that the “managers have been perfect”.
