Midday - 6pm

Michael Sumner hosts the launch of his new book at Ventnor Exchange Record Store. Through years of record digging in some far out lands, Michael Sumner has found and assembled some of the worst examples of sleeve design in the world, and here they are presented for your shock and amusement like some Victorian carnival freakshow.

So roll up, roll up and join us on a journey of wrestling country and western stars, angry flying hamburgers, Eastern European mullets, gay dogs, police bands, elephants going ape shit, sex dwarves, rocking out robots and The Animal Kwackers.

There will also be a selection of DJs playing, including Flipside Society DJs and Vinyl Lionel
