Core Music is a not-for-profit social enterprise. If you would like to help fund what we do please
Sadly, like many others in the retail sector, our shop is closed at the moment but don't forget that you can still order on-line and through our drop-ship partners. Visit our on-line shop for further details.
In order to our bit to reduce the chance of transmission we have decided to offer to deliver larger items to local customers rather than operate a "click and collect" service. We will post smaller items. Please contact us for further details.
What we do

Can't see what you want?
During the current crisis several suppliers have set up "drop-ship" arrangements with us- you can order directly from them, they arrange delivery straight to your door on our behalf and send us our normal share of the profits.
