I often wonder if vinyl records will still be around when my grandchildren (or even children) are old enough to understand different music formats.

Thanks to The Vinyl Lounge event at the National Film and Sound Archive each month, hopefully vinyl records will be appreciated for a bit longer. The Vinyl Lounge is a free event held on the first Friday of every month at the National Film and Sound Archive Theatrette. Hosted by the Sound curators, it's a simple set-up: bring your own vinyl, or select your tunes of choice from a huge selection on stage. You can share why you've made your selection, or just listen to others' stories.

The Vinyl Lounge listening party - the first Friday of every month at the National Film and Sound Archive

Music is a powerful trigger for recalling memories, past experiences or lost moments in time. Re-discover your glory days via vinyl records played on a pure analogue sound system whilst chatting with other music enthusiasts in a relaxed atmosphere.

"From Kraut-Rock to K-pop, TISM to Tijuana Brass, The Vinyl Lounge is an informal, sometimes moving, and always surprising way to close the week, and jump-start the weekend."

Grab a drink and a snack from The Bench Room café from 5pm, then sit back and tap your toes to some great tunes from 5.30-7pm.
