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.

This month we will be out and about offering our CD service to various choirs.

Last month we were  at The Apex offering CDs and hosting a CD signing on our pop-up CD stand with both international violinist Tasmin Little and eminent pianist Piers Lane.

Tasmin Little kindly commented on our CD mail order service “For anyone who likes a personal service in CDs and prefers to speak to an actual person…. a fantastic service and all you need to do is give her a call.” (FREEPHONE 0800 999 6994)

Piers Lane commented after the concert at The Apex “Lovely to see you last night – and, as always, so impressed with your commitment to what you do. You so deserve any success you have…”

By the way, you don’t 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!

As you can see on the Right hand side of the screen, we have on-going multi-buys on our most popular CD labels.

As well as all of the above and much more, we also like to offer you some exclusive competitions (see above on the black tab).

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.)
