shopSmugglers Records grew, like most wonderful things, out of a series of chance encounters in the small musically rich seaside town of Deal.

From the humble beginnings of The Smugglers Sessions at the back of a pub to busking-led adventures across Europe; the ethos of Smugglers Records existed before the label did.

Now in our 7th year we have released 20 records, put on 5 sellout Smugglers Festivals, ran stages at festivals and arranged tours and, now, we’ve opened a Record Shop in Deal!

The closing of Soundhouse (our local independent record shop) a few years ago was a huge loss to Deal, and many people in the area wanted to see something similar return to our town.

But, it will only survive with your backing, in the same way you’ve supported us so amazingly in our numerous events and releases over the past few years. So, we are inviting you to become a Gold Members of the shop, so that you can be part of this journey, and have a stake in this new addition to the town.
