Rudy's Rare Records is a tiny down-at-heel old reggae record shop in Birmingham. It's one of a dying breed; a place with real soul, stacked with piles of vinyl, where the slogan is "if we don't have it - them don't mek it". It's owned by the charismatic, irrepressible, cantankerous Rudy Sharpe, reluctantly helped out by his long-suffering son Adam, but when the threat of developers looms, father and son must put their differences aside as they face a battle to keep the music alive. Featuring a live band onstage playing reggae, ska, funk and hip hop classics, Rudy's Rare Records

Kim Plowman (27Sep14): Saw it tonight and thoroughly enjoyed and was even up dancing. Would see it again shame it's not going anywhere else. Five stars from me and my friends.
