Happy New Year

Well with the festive period over, and the New Year is fully here.. We are hoping some Resolutions will bring people to our door.

The cold period of of the year is upon us, and is a great time to learn an instrument whilst the weather outside is less than inviting! Pop in and see us.

Christmas note

Christmas window 18


With Christmas nearly here, we would like to thank our customers and pupils once again for being so supportive of Ali.  We will be closed over the Christmas week, to allow us some time to deal with the loss.

We hope our Christmas bell ringers have bought some Christmas Cheer to Red Lion Street! And thanks to all who came to see us on Christmas lights switch on.

Merry Christmas

Aylsham Light switch on- late night opening


Well the lights are going on in Aylsham on Friday night.  It is always a great night for the town.   Our Christmas window is in- so come and see our bell ringing guitars and ukuleles!  Please note that due to the amount of food available in town, and that our instruments and their strings do not respond well to general stickiness and greasiness, the instrument room will be closed to general browsers. (serious buyers please talk to staff.)  Our gift/spares/repairs  side of the shop will be open.  Hope to see you Friday- and remember our 20% guitar sale continues until the following Friday!

Faith Guitars in Stock!

We have become a Faith guitar dealer!  Were not expecting them until the end of the week, but they arrived Yesterday.  Matt is currently running about trying to get more slat-wall so we can display these lovely things in the best way possible!  We have a blood moon Neptune which is so pretty and sounds fantastic. ( all the Faith guitars are named after planets, so you can get Neptune in all the ranges of woods/varnishes , same with the Venus etc) Photos to follow!

New Summer opening times

Hi.  As you know we are a small family run business with no external staff.  We work 6 days a week and often due to lessons continuing out of official shop opening times, we  open early and finish late.  We have looked at the footfall in the shop and Monday mornings/ Saturday afternoons have very few customers.  We are going to test out some new opening times during the summer.  From June 1st we will not open until  2pm on a Monday, and we are going to close at 2pm on a Saturday.  Lessons may still operate out of opening hours as they do currently.  If this makes little difference to you the customers and gives us more of a work/life balance, then we may continue these hours permanently.

New Ukuele Straps!

Well as the royal wedding approaches- our window becomes more appropriate! Here’s hoping that the weather is fine, not only for the couple- but also for all those in the crowds watching!  And also for the crowds in Aylsham- we are having things happening in the town!  Mini Netball in the square and a Classic Car Rally.  Should be a great day for all!  Red Lion Street will be closed to all cars but the classic ones for a short time!  So hopefully I will get a glimpse as they drive by.

We now have a selection of narrow straps- designed for ukuleles in stock!  We have been asked often for them, and we have always have the traditional hooked strap for uke, but have now got some great straps which are to be used with strap buttons- for those who like that security for their uke!
