People browsing in Banquet Records shop

Banquet is an independent record shop in Kingston, just on the outskirts of London. We’re a real record shop run by real people.

Our mail order is a big part of what we do, as we send out thousands of mail order packages a month. But we are and always will be, a real record shop on the High Street, or in our case, Eden Street. We sell new-copies-only vinyl, CDs and more from the worlds of indie, punk-rock, and modern dance music, as well as soundtracks and re-issues of classics. Navigating round our site should tell you more and give you a feel of what we’re about.

As well as being a record shop, we’re a concert and clubs promoter, putting on 200 events a year in and around Kingston. These range from intimate in-store gigs to a dozen people, to international touring bands playing our local 3-tiered theatre. Doing the small shows is just as important to us as doing the big gigs. Because we know it is to you too.
