Fair Play is quickly becoming Manchester’s coolest evening record fair. Situated in the heart of the Northern Quarter, Fair Play takes place on the first Thursday of the month in the Behind Closed Doors basement.

Organised by the Fair Play team here at Dig Deep Records, our record fairs are as much a social event as an opportunity to unearth that gem you’ve been looking for.

Fair Play packs a room full of vinyl available to purchase, with rotating sellers each month, so each event is different.

Our fairs attract sellers from all over the county with the aim of bringing some fresh records into the city. Crates of boogie, funk, disco, soul, nu disco, edits, latin, jazz, house, techno, DnB, hip hop, and afrobeat, rub shoulders with rock, indie, prog, folk, reggae, and dub!

Doors open from 5pm, with DJs selecting a soundtrack of upbeat funk, soul, disco, and boogie, playing well into the night.

Entry is free, but you can support the cause by buying a drink from the well stocked bar.
