Spiral Archive is holding two events this weekend to mark its 15th birthday.

The music shop, run by Alex Novak, has been a favourite of music fans in Northampton since 1999.

To mark a decade and a half in business, Spiral Archive is holding a daytime event at its St Michael’s Road shop from 11am–4pm on Saturday, August 16.

There will be half price vinyl offers, deals on CDs and in-store appearances.

Celebrations will then move to the nearby Charles Bradlaugh where, from 9pm, Rob Glover, Alex Novak and Andy Skank will all be DJing into the early hours.

Alex said: “I didn’t realise it was that long.

“The important thing for shops like Spiral Archive is being able to find the right spot with the right rent.

“People still want to have a record, an artefact. The more technology moves on, the more there is actually demand for physical products like records.”

Admission to both events is free.
