30th November, 2019

We are back at our new London venue Coal Drops Yard on 30th November with London Brewers’ Market for our annual Christmas market ?

Join us from 11am until 6.30 pm for some amazing Christmas deals from the best indie labels, local Craft beers, DJ sets and afterparties to celebrate the cream of independent music into the night!



For this special winter market, we are partnering with War Child UK, the international charity that protects and supports children affected by war. The Winter Appeal charity auction will see the auctioning of rare vinyl donations from independent labels, including:

> from XL Recordings  Thom Yorke ‘Anima’ Limited Edition Preview 12″. Made especially to be given away at Paul Thomas Anderson’s advanced IMAX screenings of the ANIMA one-reeler.

> from Heavenly An impossibly rare test pressing of the ‘Drop Out’ album by cult indie icons East Village.

> from Because Music – signed Metronomy ‘Metronomy Forever’ LP and CD and ‘Metronomy Forever’ jigsaw puzzle, only ever sold at their shows. Plus a white label test pressing of their ‘Summer 08’ LP.

> from Mute – signed gold vinyl box set of The Pop Group’s highly influential and innovative debut album ‘Y’ released in 1979, remastered (from the original tapes) and cut half-speed at Abbey Road, limited to 500 copies.

> from Partisan Records – a test pressing of Bristol punks IDLES first album ‘Brutalism’

Join us for an afterparty over the road at the The Standard to enjoy the Be With Records soundsystem, brought specially down to London from Manchester by label head Rob Butler. Rob’s fluid, all-vinyl sets take in sweet soul, tough funk, rare groove, modern R&B, perfect pop, library nuggets, deep disco, dilapidated boogie, classic hip-hop and any combination of the above so expect an “anything goes” approach and expect the best.
