Event Details

Record Store Day is back !

Keeping with the tradition of the last 8 years Ventnor Exchange will open its doors early on Saturday 22nd April to host music lovers from far and wide. 

Ventnor Exchange is the original official RSD outlet on the Isle of Wight, and have been enthusiastic participants of the event ever since the store opened in 2014. This worldwide phenomenon has been one the driving forces behind the vinyl revival that started in 2007. 

As ever, we will of course have all those exciting special releases, live music all day including some of our young DJ’s from Brave Island hitting the decks and the infamous annual Big Record Store Day Quiz!

The final list of releases of what we have in stock is coming soon !
