An independent record shop serving locally roasted coffee, tea and cakes.

Selling new and used vinyl records amongst iconic artwork, influenced by seminal bands, their gigs and albums, Loafers is a haven for music lovers.

Owner Mark Richardson, a long-time lover of vinyl records, offers a wide range of genres to browse, with a selection of the more obscure sounds that can be found in the record rack titled ‘otherness.’ Mark also serves locally roasted and hand brewed Darkwoods Coffee, tea, soft drinks, craft ales, wines, spirits and snacks, and hosts live music events.

From 1 June until 31 August The Piece Hall will be opening at the earlier time of 9am, seven days a week.

We’re hosting 35 shows and events over the next three months, but while things look a bit different in the courtyard all our independent shops are all open as usual.

The Piece Hall will close a little earlier at 4pm on show days so we can make final preparations for the evening gigs.
