He said: “We hold six a year and at the fair on Sunday, March 4 we will be celebrating our 30th anniversary, as is the Brighton Centre where we hold the fairs. So the stands are down from £45 to £10 and they’re free to registered charities and official fan clubs. We’ve got 200 dealers there on March 4.”

Geoff, whose musical loves include old blues recordings and Bob Dylan, sets a dateline at his record fairs of 1950 to the present. “There will also be a big exhibition of Rolling Stones memorabilia from one of the largest private collections in Europe,” he added.

One of the standholders at the fair will be David Sallis, also from Brighton, who is a Beatles memorabilia specialist. On behalf of Gorringes Lewes rooms, David will be giving valuations on pop and entertainment memorabilia at the fair prior to organising the auctioneers’ first Entertainment Sale on June 13.
