What A Great Day!
We had plenty of interest in Soho's rich, musical heritage, our poster on "The Sound History of Soho" was well received although we couldn't do it real justice as it would need a dozen posters to cover this area, but I think we gave people a flavour of the variety and longevity of music in Soho.

Berwick Street was vibrant and is still home to many Indie Record Stores, it was wonderful again to see the market packed with people on a sunny day, enjoying the beats and banter coming from the stores and stalls.Live music came courtesy of Berwick St London / Sister Ray record store and DJing at Sounds of The Universe. and Black Market Music
mosoho put on "The Fleas"
A fabulous Ukulele Troupe who wowed the audience with their own brand of urbanism and all round, smiles from a very happy crowd
We had veterans of " Dobells Record store Jazz, Blues and Folk" A legendary record shop That once existed at 77 Charing Cross Rd at our stall.
They currently have an exhibition on at CHELSEA space and is well worth a visit with talks and open decks continuing until 18.05.13

The whole point of the day is to celebrate music and the Indie record stores that have been such a big, part of peoples lives "They're more like clubs, where you can meet people with the same passion".
