Welcome to Colchester Classics where Classical Music matters!

OUR CD SERVICE – Colchester Classics is a CD, LP and DVD mail order company celebrating 11 years service to those starting their love affair with music, clever collectors, also to music groups and at concerts. We’re as passionate about providing the best service as we were when we started in 2006.

UPDATE! To end our 11th year as Colchester Classics we would like to offer you Chandos single CDs at £11*.  That means every single Chandos CD shown on our website, on any printed literature, or social media at £12.25* is now £11* (Offer expires on 31 December 2017). The catch? It’s just for orders sent by post and email.

NEW CDs Each week we update our new CDs (see above link on the Menu bar), plus we regularly update our Special Offers and other links (CD of the Month).

For all enquiries please ring 0800 999 6994, email liz@colchesterclassics.co.uk or click on the Contact Colchester Classics button top RHS of your screen.

REGULAR MULTI-BUY PRICES … While many CDs are on limited time special offers, our standard prices for Chandos single CDs are £12.25* with multi-buys of 3 for £33*, 4 for £44* etc., Naxos single CDs are £7.50* or 5 for £35* and finally Dutton Epoch single CDs are £12.50* each or 2 for £24*

By the way, you don’t have to restrict yourself to the CDs featured here, on our social media campaigns or on our printed mailshots. Pick CDs from your own wish list and pick up the telephone to enquire, challenge us with your requests!

OUT and ABOUT – In addition to our mail order service we also pop out of the office with our pop-up CD stand offering CDs at concerts, choirs and festivals often including CD signings with international musicians performing in Essex and nearby Suffolk. (Within the black menu tab ‘About’ there is a drop down list showing the many, many local, semi-professional and professional musicians, festivals and events we have been and still are actively involved with.)

FREE PUBLICITY In addition to Colchester Classics, its founder Liz Leatherdale previews and reviews concerts in the Essex County Standard, Essex Life, Daily Gazette and Colchester 101 . (More can be found on how we offer free publicity in our free time in the About section above.)
