RECORD CLUB

Do you remember the first record you ever bought? Have a favourite album? Believe that music sounds better on vinyl? Well so do we!

If you enjoy sharing and talking about the music that means the most to you with other music fans, why not come along to one of our new listening clubs. Each month we choose and listen to a classic album (played in full, on vinyl), before discussing the record together.

Meetings are facilitated by a member of our team, and after a short introduction we’ll drop the needle onto track one and savor the first side of the record. At the end of side one we can take a few minutes to share any initial reactions before turning the record over. When the album finishes, we’ll encourage people to grab a tea or a coffee before we reconvene to discuss the merits of the album whilst having a listen to any other relevant songs along the way.

Music is something that is close to all our hearts, and we positively encourage lively debate at our meetings, whilst keeping meetings relaxed, friendly and welcoming for everyone. Feel free to turn up on the day or drop us a line to find out more at info@reelconnections.co.uk or find details of our upcoming sessions below.

Volunteer with Record Club!

If you enjoy great music, meeting people and supporting your local community then why not volunteer to help facilitate our Record Clubs. Volunteer duties include welcoming people to the sessions and supporting the discussion with materials provided. Expenses will be reimbursed and volunteers will be given full training ahead of the sessions. Contact us at info@reelconnections.co.uk to find out more.
