Welcome to Colchester Classics where Classical Music matters!

OUR CD SERVICE – Colchester Classics is a CD, LP and DVD mail order company celebrating 12 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! We would like to continue our offer of 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*

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.)
