  2. RECORD STORE DAY ON SAT 21 APR 2018

    The 11th Record Store Day will take place on Saturday 21st April 2018. Over the last 10 years, the event has become one of the most eagerly anticipated and important events for vinyl fans up and down the country. In 2017, over 500 artists released limited edition vinyl products available exclusively in over 200 participating stores. 2018’s releases are to be revealed in early March. The success of the event has sparked a huge turnaround in fortunes for the nation’s independent record stores, with new shops opening at nearly one a week since last year’s Record Store Day. And the vinyl boom continues as the latest industry market statistics from the Entertainment Retailers Association show vinyl sales growing for the10th year by a further 34% in 2017 to a £88m business. Record Store Day is delighted to reveal the music-loving brands that are supporting the indie record shop community in 2018 are: Rega Research returns as our Official Turntable and Audio Partner for the 4th year running. Rega will once again be pleasing audiophiles with a one-off design for a limited edition Record Store Day turntable. The turntable will be available exclusively from participating stores with a special surprise for a limited number of buyers. We are also excited to welcome Sound Performance as our first ever Official Vinyl Manufacturing Partner. Over the coming weeks Record Store Day & Sound Performance will be launching a competition to support the UK’s best unsigned talent. Chris Marksberry, Managing Director of Sound Performance, said, “The re-birth of vinyl has given the music industry a new dynamism and Record Store Day has played a crucial role in bringing the format back. We share the values of Record Store Day and the support they give to independent record stores, record labels and the industry as a whole. We would like to wish Record Store Day and all the UK’s amazing record stores and record labels a successful 2018.” Friels Cider are supporting this year’s event as our first ever Official Cider Partner and will soon be launching a limited edition promotional can available nationwide. Friels will also be running social competitions and supporting launch parties in record stores around the UK. Keep an eye on the Record Store Day website for more details. And finally, after the success of the exclusive Fred Perry record bags in 2017 we are delighted to announce they will be returning with all new limited edition tote bags for this year’s event. More Fred Perry activity will also be revealed in due course.

  8. Title: Llandudno - Gateway to Snowdonia Description: Summary: Produced by the British Tourist Authority, in co-operation with Llandudno Urban District Council, to show the town as the ideal holiday destination. Introduced to the area with shots of the Snowdon mountain range, accompanied by the Llanddulas Male Voice Choir (singing 'Oes Gafr Eto'), the viewer is taken on a tour of the various attractions the town has to offer, which comprise beach (family groups on sand, some paddling, sun-bathers), town (from the Great Orme), pier, shopping streets, eating out (young and old enjoying meal in restaurants), steamer trips to the Isle of Man (people on board ferry), sailing boats, posters advertising different attractions, bandstand with massed audience (many sitting on hill above), bowls, golf, indoor heated swimming pool (children in pool, couple eating in cafe alongside), sailing, pony trekking (on hills above town), the Great Orme road (hair-pin bends), the Great Orme Railway (shots of the tram on its way up the steep hill), the Great Orme cable car (shots of and from), sheep on the Great Orme (harrassing picnic-ers), sheep dog trials, the Church and graveyard of St Tudno (an open air Sunday service in progress, crowds attending), Lewis Carroll memorial, activities for children (donkey rides on the promenade, pedal boats, boating pool with toy boats, Punch and Judy Show, swing boats, trampolines, mini car track). There is also footage of attractions in the surrounding area - Conwy Castle (aerial shots of the castle, showing the three bridges nearby - the suspension bridge, the tubular bridge, the new bridge; the smallest house in Britain, on the quay), mountains and lakes (views, anglers), the Ffestiniog Railway (on board - people in carriage drinking/eating - and views of the route including shot of girl operating level crossing gates), the Snowdon Mountain Railway (a train, walkers and a mountaineer all approaching the summit, views from the top showing Crib Goch), Caernarfon (aerial shots of Caernarfon Castle and town), Bodnant Gardens (including shot of the Laburnum Walk) and Gwydr Castle (building, gardens, peacocks), both near Llanrwst, Swallow Falls at Betws-y-coed, the Welsh Mountain Zoo at Colwyn Bay (sealions, lioness and cubs, elephant, aviary). The tour finishes with shots of the town's shopping streets and some of the activities available when the sun goes down (fairground rides, young people dancing in discotheque with DJ). The final shots show the beach, with people sitting in deck-chairs, families playing on the sand, people using a lilo in the sea, the narrator rounding off his commentary with the following: "This, then, is Llandudno, the holiday town, designed as such and dedicated to the renewing of tired bodies, the gateway to the beauties of Snowdonia". Publisher: S.l. : British Tourist Authority Institution: National Library of Wales Info page: http://discover.library.wales/44WHELF_NLW_VU1:CSCOP_EVERYTHING:44NLW_ALMA21756644120002419 Description from the BFI British Film Institute player page The Llanddulas Male Voice Choir accompanies introductory shots of the mountains of Snowdonia with a rendition of the well-known song ‘Oes Gafr Eto’ [Is there another Goat?], wild goats being a feature of the Great Orme. But Llandudno, as the Urban District Council/British Tourist Authority are at pains to point out, has more than goats for it is “the holiday town, designed as such and dedicated to the renewing of tired bodies” – on beach, on pier, on promenade and beyond. National Screen and Sound Archive of Wales preserves and celebrates the sound and moving image heritage of Wales, making it accessible to a wide range of users for enjoyment and learning. Its film collection reflects every aspect of the nation’s social, cultural and working life across the 20th century, giving a fascinating insight into Welsh filmmaking, both amateur and professional http://player.bfi.org.uk/film/watch-llandudno-gateway-to-snowdonia-1975/
