Music and art for a good cause with Secret 7"

Secret 7" Programme - Traditional Mini Newspaper. Combining music and art for a good cause.

We're very happy to be sponsors of Secret 7" again this year. Since 2012, the project has raised over £130,000 for charity by inviting creatives to produce one-of-a-kind record sleeves for musicians ranging from Etta James to Tame Impala.

Seven tracks from 7 artists are each pressed to vinyl 100 times and 700 unique sleeves are produced, exhibited and then sold anonymously for £50 each. Jenny Holzer and Sir Anish Kapoor are amongst the long list of cover contributors this year, but you won't know whose artwork is on your sleeve (or even which track it is) until after you've bought it. (That's the secret part.)

This is the second year we've printed a programme for the event. The traditional mini newspaper is packed with interviews with George Hardie, Cheryl Dunn, Thierry Noir, Max Richter, and more. There's also a calendar of talks, live recording sessions and, new this year, three sleeve-making workshops for painting, letterpress and collage.
