We bought a boat! For our regular customers this will not be a surprise. Matt is a very keen sailor- a passion that has not abated over his lifetime. The boat we have bought is a lovely boat- but currently is in Greece- which is amazing and wonderful, but not very practical for a weekend sail. So we are bringing her home to Norfolk. This will mean that opening times may be a little erratic over the summer holidays. As you know it is just us- we are a family business- so with this sailing experience taking Matt away mostly, and myself and the children in stages, there might be a few ups and downs with our opening times. Please ring ahead if coming from a distance or need something urgently. But it is exciting.

Staff Holiday

Hi- wow, I have not written for a while. Sorry about that. Just to let you know that the shop will be closed between Friday 24th May and Monday 10th June. It is my big birthday- and we are taking a break for 2 weeks. Know you will all miss us!! We will return rested.

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.
