Mick on Look North

Record Covers a Smash Hit

We thought that Steve Goldman’s amazing collection of record covers would prove popular, but certainly not how amazingly so. Following coverage on BBC Look North we had over 5000 people visit this website to find out more about it. Weekly attendance records for Bailiffgate Museum & Gallery- even those set by our Harry Potter exhibition a few years ago- have been broken already, and as I write there is still time left for even more visitors, as the exhibition does not close until 21st April 2024

One thing which our welcome desk keep commenting on is the noise coming from the upstairs gallery where the exhibition is being held. At first they though it could be someone taken ill, but on examination it was just chuckles, guffaws and even helpless laughter. Phrases such as “Have you seen this one?” and even ( after Victor Meldrew) ” I don’t believe it! ”

PS Although the covers are best seen in the flesh -and spoiler alert, you can see plenty of that- there is also a book by Steve Goldman featuring many of the covers and their stories on sale on the museum shop. That has already sold out once and we had to rush in more supplies. Grab one in the museum shop while you can…
