Past event: Draw your favourite record cover for Record Store Day

To find out about our current events please refer to our events page


Cass Art's Soho store in Berwick Street is situated amidst an amazing hub of independent record stores including Sister Ray records, Reckless Records and Sound of the Universe. In fact, Berwick Street was closed off on Saturday 20th April in celebration of Record Store Day so that music fans can enjoy the area and shop for exclusive record releases!

In order to celebrate our musical location we decided to get in on the action by running a competition for customers to recreate their favourite record cover. Customers were encouraged t take inspiration from retro record sleeves or present-day album covers and recreate an iconic piece of Art. Our Berwick Street store team were running the competition outside amongst the buzz of the one day Record Store Day festival. The 'Top Ten' covers won a Cass Art tote bag full of creative materials. The winners were chosen on the day of entry in store and all creative materials will be supplied by Cass Art. Record Store Day is now a global event bringing together stores and shoppers in a one day celebration of the independent record store. On Saturday 20th April 300+ Releases were available for one day only and most shops had bands DJs and other events planned too.
