Stars descend on launch of Despicable Discs, the Minions: The Rise of Gru retro vinyl swap shop


With the new adventure taking our favourite yellow sidekicks back to the disco loving decade, the record store brings a funky edge to the area and the launch night saw DJ Woody Cook take to the decks, with Dancing On Ice skater Regan Gascoigne and YouTuber sensations Harvey and Max Mills, among others, dancing well into the night as well as enjoying the space’s “Minfinity” room, Swizzels game and copious photo ops.

Opening to the public on Saturday 18th June for a week, Despicable Discs will bring a ’70s explosion back to Carnaby Street, with visitors able to swap their own records for groovy gems from the ’50s, ’60s and ’70s. All the discs received at the pop up will be donated to Oxfam. For those simply looking for a fun day out, the store will host an array of funky features, as well as having live sets from up-and-coming DJs.
