The John Peel Centre will be transformed into a vinyl-lovers’ heaven this month, as the home of creative arts hosts a pop-up record shop.

Mark Wilkinson, who has designed record sleeves for the likes of Iron Maiden, Judas Priest and Marillion will be doing a signing at the event in Stowmarket from 4.30pm on June 16.

Mr Wilkinson said: “I only met John Peel once, outside a gig for the Mothers of Invention way back in the mists of time. A bunch of us were waiting in the queue to get in the venue and we plucked up the courage to talk to him. He was really friendly and approachable - just as you’d expect.

“I was delighted to be invited to display some of my artwork at the The John Peel Centre of Creative Arts in June.”

The pop-up shop will run from 1pm until 8pm on the day. The Vinyl Lounge, an opportunity to share and listen to records, starts at 7.30pm – with a £3 charge for admission.
