Closing for a happy event! Saturday the 16th of December

Dear all,
For those of you who have not visited us in recent months, we have been imminently expecting the arrival of our second child. The time is now upon us, and the shop will be closed tomorrow - Saturday the 16th of December.

I am planning to open the shop again next week so that you can collect instruments, bows or find that Christmas present! If you need to get in touch with us regarding an instrument, bow, order or repair please email me at and I will try to get back to you as soon as possible.

Please keep an eye on our website for updates!

Apologies for any inconvenience caused.
Jon and Becky
