The wait is over


Back by popular demand after the huge success of London Record Fair 2013, in October (where we saw over 3000 people attend the event), we are proud to announce that our Summer LRF 2014 will take place over the course of 3 days, from Friday 30th May – Sunday 1st June.

As before – the most eclectic mix of musical genres will be exhibited by the very keenest of national and international dealers of quality vinyl and CD’s, besides an array of music memorabilia, funky clothing, record accessories and much more…

We will once again use the fabulous Truman Brewery, London E1 location, but this time, at The Boiler House – an impressive ground floor venue, offering much improved loading facilities, a fantastic courtyard space, ample parking and regular, reliable transport links.

This site is in the heart of London’s bohemian East End – boasting over 300 bars and restaurants, nestled amongst several of London’s busiest markets. LRF 2014 is also excited to be running concurrently and alongside Graduate Fashion Week 2014, which regularly attracts more than 20,000 young people over its 4-day duration, on the same Truman Brewery site.

This we believe, should prove a rare and wonderful opportunity to encourage and expose a younger generation to the unrivalled romance of vinyl and possibly a new music cultural experience!

The fair is being actively promoted through attendance at local, national and international record fairs and events, in order to attract not only dealers to participate, but also buyers from as far as Japan and Russia, thus giving the event a truly international flavour.

London Record Fair 2014 is being widely publicized mainly through the social media, where we have accumulated a huge number of followers, but also using established publications such as Record Collector.

Information regarding local hotels, parking, and travel plans is currently being compiled and will be available on this site, in due course.

  • Kings Cross/St Pancras: This is the main destination for travellers arriving from Edinburgh and the North East, via the East Coast Main Line. It is also the new home of Eurostar, and is therefore the main destination for visitors arriving from Europe.  Waterloo: This station serves travellers arriving from Kent and East Sussex. Victoria: Serves Brighton and other areas in South West England. It is also the terminal station for trains arriving from Gatwick Airport.
  • Liverpool Street: The main arrival point for visitors arriving from Stansted Airport. It also serves East Anglia, some East coast destinations and North East London.  Paddington: The terminal of the Heathrow Express. It also provides transport links to south Eastern areas such as Bath, Cardiff, and Bristol.
  • All railways stations have Tube stations attached, so getting around is easy. Remember to keep your ticket until you have completely left the station, as you may be asked to produce it.

Advance bookings can sometimes mean lower fares. Also check the price for 2 singles instead of a return ticket, as this can sometimes be more cost effective.

Getting Around

London has an extensive public transport network, making it easy to navigate around the city. It is also the best way to avoid London’s heavy traffic, and the congestion charges.


By Underground/Tube

London’s Underground system is one of the most famous in the world. With nearly 300 stations and 12 different lines, it is a large network that is worth familiarising yourself with before you travel.

Tube information and opening times:
Free Tube maps are available from each station to enable you to plan your journey.
The Tube’s opening hours are 05:30-00:30 Monday to Saturday, and 07:30-23:30 on Sundays.
It is best to avoid the Tube during its peak times as it can be overcrowded and hectic. Peak times are 07:30-09:30 and 16:00-19:00 Monday to Friday. It is cheaper to travel outside the peak hours.

Zones and Tickets:
The Underground operates a ‘zone’ charging system.
Depending on where your accommodation is located, a ticket for zones 1-2 should cover your needs. However, a zones 1-6 ticket may be more useful if you are planning a wider trip of London.
Children under 11 travelling with an adult ticket holder can travel for free, children over 11 can travel for £1.00. This applies for up to 4 children at any one time in off-peak hours.

By Bus

London’s bus network has, with the arrival of the congestion charge, become much more user friendly. If you want to get a good view of the city this is a good way to travel. The system also has an effective night bus service (prefixed with letter N) should you be planning a night on the town or a late trip to the theatre.
