On 22 March at 8pm, music lovers are being invited to Fossgate Social to discuss their favourite album. Branding agency Lazenby Brown - as infamous for their extensive vinyl collection and passion for the subject as they are for their award-winning artworks - are hosting the first event. They say, "It’s like book club, but with records".
