About us

Welcome to P&C Music! We are now celebrating our 27th year of serving music lovers in the UK and overseas.

RECORD STORE DAYS 2021, SATURDAYS JUNE 12 AND JULY 17

IMPORTANT CHANGE TO THE ARRANGEMENTS FOR RECORD STORE DAY, SATURDAY JULY 17 We will open at 8.00am and close at 5.30pm. Please observe social distancing when queuing and wear a mask when entering the store. We are still in a pandemic!

In addition to being open during the day, we will also be taking orders by ‘phone and email from 6.00pm in the evening. We can send you your purchases, or you can collect them – see next. The contact points for ordering by phone and email are:

01423 504035
07887 355103
peter@pomp-and-circumstance.co.uk

Please only use one of the above for ordering – if you phone in and send an email your order may be duplicated which will cause confusion and we will think we have fewer copies of that item left.    We are normally closed on Sundays and Mondays, but we will be open for business on the Mondays following both RSD events, i.e. 14 June and 19 July. This will give customers the opportunity to buy remaining RSD stock or pick up the items they bought when placing orders by phone or email on the Saturday.

There are over 250 shops involved and the releases are shared amongst them. Like all the other shops, we won’t know what we’re getting until we open the boxes, which arrive only few days before the events. Consequently, our stock list won’t be available until just before the events occur. This year, several titles are moving from Drop 1 to Drop 2 which makes it even harder to keep the list current.

OUR RSD2021 STOCKLIST

I have done my best with the list against almost impossible odds! Not only have several titles been pushed back to Drop 2, but some more stock arrived today, making this list as late as it is. It is not finalised; some bits in yellow have to be amended.

Where the stocklist will appear……

Here is a link to the official RSD page, where you can find a full list of the releases for both events: https://recordstoreday.co.uk/…/official-record-store…/

RULES AND STUFF – PLEASE READ, THERE AREN’T MANY!

Items cannot be reserved or ordered before the event(s).

No more than one copy of an individual item may be sold to the same customer.

For the phone/email orders from 6.oopm on June 12, first come, first served on all items and nothing can be ordered/purchased before 6.00pm. Emails sent before 6.00pm will be answered after those sent at 6.00pm. Payment by debit card please. You may buy up to five individual titles. No items may be reserved.

If you are unsure of anything, send your question to peter@pandcmusic.co.uk

WE LOOK FORWARD TO SEEING YOU ON 12 JUNE AND 17 JULY! PLEASE SHARE THIS INFO WITH YOUR FRIENDS, YOUR FAMILY AND ANYONE YOU KNOW WHO LOVES RECORDS! IT’S BEEN WAY TOO LONG AWAY FROM RECORD SHOPS!

IN MEMORIAM GEOFFREY WEBBER, 1946 – 2021

It is with great sadness that I report that Geoffrey Webber, the founder of Pomp and Circumstance (now P&C Music), passed away on 11 March. He served in the RAF and had an active political life as a Liberal Democrat Borough Councillor for twenty six years, representing Bilton and Nidd Gorge. In May 2006 he became Mayor of Harrogate. He was also a strong supporter of the Harrogate Homeless Project. He was a well-respected councillor and politician who worked hard for his residents. His honesty and integrity will be remembered with fondness by all who knew him. His wife Pat, 74, said: “Geoff was the perfect husband to me – we loved each other so much and he was just wonderful to me in every way possible. He will be sadly missed by us all.”
On a personal note, I got to know Geoff as a customer of the shop when it was in Commercial Street. When he decided to retire in 2010, I agreed to buy the business. He was generous with both his advice and with his time; I learnt a great deal from him and we became friends. It is testimony to him that the shop continues to this day and is now in its 27th year of trading.
