The Record Markets

Dig A Little is a new breed of record event. Originally created and organised by three individuals who all have a penchant for a spot of vinyl, it started as a monthly excursion into the joys of record playing, collecting and trading, taking place at the Forest Tavern in Forest Gate, E7 and expanding to various sites in East and South East London where we were allowed to set up ‘shop’. Taking shape as a little daytime get together monthly Saturdays, our events tend towards friendly socials where you can come and mingle with like-minded people, have a chat, sell, buy or trade used (and new) records while listening to an assortment of DJs drop sets of rare and classic soul, funk, jazz and disco (some for sale, some not). And of course, enjoy a cheeky afternoon pint and sausage roll before home time!

Our very first event took place at the Tavern on Saturday 1st February 2014 and we’ve been hosting regular follow-ups ever since. As well as quarterly markets in Forest Gate, we’ve also previously held events in South East London in and around Eltham, Bromley and Sydenham, as well as organise a regular live Jazz and vinyl event at the now-defunct Forge Music & Arts Venue in Camden. Now in addition to our Forest Gate home, you will also find us at The Kenton pub in Homerton, once a quarter on the first Saturday of the month, as well as numerous other one-off pop-ups in and around London as and when we find time to spread our wings and vinyl collections!

If you’re a record collector, a DJ, a person that loves good music or simply someone who’s intrigued by the age-old fascination of records themselves, then we’d like to hear from you. We’re always on the lookout for people to get involved at our events, whether it’s to come down and bring some records to play on the communal decks, or to man a few of your own crates at one of our monthly vinyl markets. We’re a friendly bunch, so drop us a line!
