A popular coffee and vinyl shop in Bury has been transformed into a juice bar this week as film crews descend en masse on the market town.

Wax and Beans, an independent vinyl record shop and coffee house, has seen its shop front undergo a makeover courtesy of Netflix as artists transformed it into a juice bar.

Netflix film crews were spotted in Bury on Monday alongside crews from the BBC filming at both the Market Place and Wax and Beans.

A spokesperson from the café told the Bury Times: “Netflix are here filming today (Tuesday), and we have had a temporary rebrand to a juice bar.

“All online orders are unaffected other than the accompaniment of a delicious scent of fruit and ice cream! We’re open as usual.”

Sharing an image of the rebrand to its Instagram account, Wax and Beans asked followers what would be their new name ‘if this stuck’ – and they’ve had some really great answers.

One person wrote: “Smoothie Grooves”


Another person said: “Jams and juice”

A third joked: “Smoothie Operator”
