Press Play are proud to be kicking off this years proceedings with a corker of a North East documentary about the very last surviving vinyl record shop in Stockton on Tees.

Over the last five years an independent record shop has closed in the UK every three days. Sound It Out documents a place that is thriving against the odds and the local community that keeps it alive. The film is filled with an abundance of characters, knowledge and 70,000 records.

A funny, personal and distinctive portrait which charts obsession with music and the irreplaceable role it plays within our lives.

We are delighted to welcome director Jeannie Finlay, who grew up three miles from the shop, along with stars of the film Tom and Shane who will be taking part in a Q&A.

Described as High Fidelity with a Northern Accent, this is a beauty of a film is not to be missed.

A beautiful muse. Just when you thought analogue could not get any cooler, along comes this gem that makes you remember why you loved records in the first place. Hussain Currimbhoy, Programmer, Sheffield Doc Fest.

The Sound It Out After Party promises to be stonker. After the screening, join us at the Star & Shadow where local turntable legend, Michael Clunkie Vinyl Junkie, will be kicking off proceedings spinning his infamous collection of the good, the bad and the damn right shocking! Get your dancing shoes out and get ready to move.  

Michael will then be on hand to help YOU 'Sound It Out'...

We are inviting you to bring your 3 favourite tracks on vinyl or CD and you're the D.J - no MP3s permitted, it wouldn't be in the spirit of the evening now, would it? Register your tracks on arrival and get ready for your set.  Expect an eclectic mix of songs through the decades, prizes will be awarded to the best selection, will you fill the floor or clear it? Star of Sound It Out, Tom Butchart, will be delighting you with his audio treats as he takes to the decks.  Watch the wizard at work, he has one hell of a collection.
