MUSIC lover Pete Bennett will be living the dream when he opens his own vinyl record shop in Devizes on Saturday.

Mr Bennett, 55, has been running Vinyl Realm as an on-line business for seven years but he is delighted that he will now be able to meet his customers face to face at his shop in Long Street.

He said: “It has always been my dream to have a shop. I have had a lot of support from Ian James from Light And Sound in Devizes and I have been selling records from his shop which has helped to build up the Vinyl Realm name.”

His partner Jacki Bennett, who is assistant manager at the Air Ambulance shop in Devizes, will be working with him part-time.

The couple, who plan to marry in among the stones at Avebury next year, will be selling records from across the decades. New releases will also be available along with official brand merchandise, gifts and turntables.

Singer Mike Barham will perform at the opening and Richard Benham from Sultan of Swingers will cut the ribbon at 10am.
