Andy Wilcox has been on the market circuit for a long time and can be found selling vintage record players and guitars. He takes you on a trip round his stall talking about his trade as well as the amazing story of the 1924 Plus-A-Gram which eventually became the famous Dansette Record Player. Take this tour to tune into the grooves of 50's, 60's, and 70's music machines.
Personal Shopper: Cornucopia! is the culmination of a 3 year project by Katie Etheridge & Simon Persighetti exploring and celebrating the rich network of relationships between shoppers, traders and goods in Kirkgate Market.
In the sensory labyrinth of Leeds Kirkgate Market, Personal Shopper: Cornucopia! is the market in microcosm, a 21st Century Still Life of fruit, fish, textiles, jewellery, frying pans, friends and experiences. Offering a pick-and-mix selection of micro tours led by local shoppers, traders, market enthusiasts and mis-guides, Katie and Simon invite you to navigate the Market through a series of idiosyncratic Personal Shopper tours where poetic, playful and practical insights are intertwined with personal histories, individual passions, and lived experiences.
Details and timings of individual tours are available on the Compass Festival website.
The tours are collected in a new publication: Personal Shopper: A Market Mis-Guide available to buy from the stall.
