EuroMillions Winner Opens Memorabilia Shop
3rd May 2016 10:58 AM
UK EuroMillions winner Adrian Bayford has opened a shop in Cambridge, selling music and film memorabilia, despite sharing £148.6 million with his ex-wife Gillian in August 2012. Whilst many EuroMillions players see a big jackpot, such as tonight’s £42 million (€54 million) bounty, as the perfect excuse to quit the nine-to-five and spend their days relaxing on tropical beaches, Adrian has returned to the world of retail, having previously owned a second hand record shop before his numbers came up almost four years ago.
Black Barn Records, on Burleigh Street in the university city, sells a host of life-sized cardboard cutouts from iconic films and TV shows, as well as lifelike models and busts of famous screen characters such as Wolverine and the Joker from Batman. As a nod to Adrian’s former career, there is also a host of music memorabilia, such as a Beatles picture signed by John Lennon just weeks before he was killed. Items on sale in the brand new store range from £2 to £25,000.
Asked about his decision to return to the shop counter following his bank balance-bulging win, the 45-year-old said “It's something I enjoy, it is something I enjoy being involved with, people like music and they like getting their hands on it.” Adrian also informed Cambridge News that he has plans to launch more shops and to open a vinyl-pressing plant.
The millionaire is a keen collector of showbiz memorabilia, having recently splashed out £10,000 on a host of Lady Gaga items, including some of the pop star’s shoes and stage outfits, as well as snapping up a £3,000 guitar signed by rock band Guns N’ Roses.
