CD Swap Shop

CD Swap Shop
Sunday 17th March from 12:00pm
Humber Street

A family day at Humber Street and in the Brew House of one of Hull’s iconic pubs.

Most of us have loads of CDs that we bought on impulse or invested in many years ago before our musical tastes reached the current dizzy heights.  Some are rubbish, some are weird, some have just not been played for a decade.  The answer is to swap your unloved music for something that might just tickle the musical taste buds again.  If two people bring a dozen or so CDs then there’s a chance that there’s a CD to swap.  If 200 pop down then it’s pretty certain that you can offload your Bananarama for a Back Street Boy – or whatever floats your boat.

To celebrate the free Swap Shop, friends of Fruit Trade Music will provide live music in Humber Street, just like on our successful launch day.  As a cosy alternative, the Brew House at Minerva will be open to help you haggle and work out how many Boney M’s there are to a Coldplay or Justin Biebers to David Cassidy.  It’s entirely up toi you.  If that’s not enough, the Minerva also has its regular Sunday evening of live music in its restaurant.

The event coincides with the expanded Sunday Market at Fruit Club.  Other Fruit Trade Area attractions are open to welcome visitors.

Open that cupboard, clear the decks, dust down Shirley Bassey, Renee and Renata and come on down to the Fruit Trade Area for a celebration of your own music.  At worst you won’t be worse off!  You can only win!

If you are happy and flushed enough there will be a collection to support local musical talent at Fruit Trade Music – but there’s no pressure whatsoever.
