Black Barn Records opened last week…

Adrian Bayford — who won £148 million on the National Lottery in 2012 — has opened his own record store in Cambridge last week.

Speaking about the opening of Black Barn Records in Burleigh Street, Cambridge, Mr Bayford said: "The shop offers a wide range of interesting music and film memorabilia.

"Unlike a lot of the national chains who sell you what they want to sell we cater to what people actually want."

The shop specialises in second albums, as well as film and music memorabilia. Mr Bayford revealed that one of the most expensive items on sale at Black Barn Records is a picture of the Beatles signed by John Lennon just two weeks before he was shot dead.

Mr Bayford's shop isn't just a richman's play thing though, before he won the lottery he ran Suffolk Music Centre in Haverhill. Mr Bayford says he plans to open a "couple more" record shops in the future, and he also has plans to buy a vinyl-pressing plant in the UK too.

He added: "It's something I enjoy, it is something I enjoy being involved with, people like music and they like getting their hands on it.

"Not everyone wants to buy online, we offer a unique experience in the shop, catering from eight-year-olds to 80-year-olds."
