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.)
