Q Acoustics

Concept 300 Speakers

Designed to bring a landmark live performance sound to the home, Q Acoustics’ flagship Concept 300 standmount is the British company’s most audio advanced loudspeaker, making a cutting-edge design statement that makes it the centrepiece of any room. The holy grail for any loudspeaker manufacturer is designing the ‘quietest’ speaker cabinet possible, free from external and internal vibrations that can colour the sound. Through our years of acoustic expertise and innovative audio technology, we at Q Acoustics believe we have achieved this with the Concept 300. The result is a sonic performance akin to being at a live concert; a holographic and powerful soundstage that puts you at the centre of the music.

Q Acoustics is a multi-award winning hi-fi brand, which was founded by experts in the audio industry with the sole aim of developing a highly successful loudspeaker brand.

Markson Pianos

Kawai ES110 Digital Piano

The ES110 is the latest addition to Kawai’s highly respected series of portable digital pianos, combining our class-leading authentic keyboard action and piano sound technologies within a lightweight, affordable package.

The ES110’s brand new Responsive Hammer Compact keyboard action has been developed to reproduce the distinctive touch of an acoustic grand piano. Its spring-less technology and sturdy construction delivers consistent upward and downward motion for a smooth, natural, and highly authentic piano playing experience.

Featuring 88 grade-weighted keys, the ES110 keyboard responds just like a real grand piano, and is therefore an ideal choice for beginners seeking a starter instrument on which to learn. However, its realistic, acoustic-like touch will also appeal to more experienced players looking for a second piano for after-hours practise, or to simply enjoy a little music away from home.

London’s famous piano store, founded in 1910, is a third-generation family business. We specialise in the sale and hire of new and secondhand (pre-owned) acoustic and digital, upright and grand pianos.

We aim to offer good value for money, expert advice and unparalleled after sales service through the essential ingredients of a superb selection of pianos for sale and hire.

Our services include hire, maintenance, restoration, removal and tuning, together with supplying you with the latest technology the music industry has to offer, such as retrofit self-playing mechanisms and silent systems. We specialise in long and short term piano hire in London, the south east and the UK.

Bluestone Vineyards

Signature Vineyard Walk And Tasting

You’re in for a real treat. Escape to the country for a private “Signature Vineyard Walk & Wine Tasting” for 6 people who you hold nearest and dearest. This is an intimate guided walk around the vineyards where you will learn about the challenges of growing grapes in our climate and the skill and hard work that go into overcoming them to produce internationally award winning sparkling wines. Learn the wonders of our “terroir” and intricate relationships between man, soil and weather, all the while sipping on gorgeous and refreshing sparkling wines and taking in the Wiltshire countryside. The wine tasting will be accompanied by a lovely selection of locally sourced cheeses, meats and other nibbles. We will touch upon how the wines are made and how to smell and taste wine alongside basic pairing rules – a taste of Wiltshire awaits!

We are donating half cases (3 bottles) of our sparkling wine as an alternative for those who don’t want to or can’t travel to come and see us. You’re not getting off lightly though. We will also include a voucher for our Signature Vineyard Walk & Wine Tasting for two. No excuses, although of course, they can be given as a gift. Our Bluestone Classic Cuvee is delicious and drinking beautifully now. It is on the upward trajectory to its peak and will continue to develop and drink well over the next few years.

Welcome to the historic county of Wiltshire, the centre of UK civilisation for millenia, shrouded in mystery and still teasing us with hints of what has gone on here. She has another secret to share with the world – Internationally Award Winning Sparkling Wines

Grapevines are extremely sensitive and revealing plants, and have been used for thousands of years telling tales of the land through bearing its fruits and being made into the “Nectar of the Gods”. The McConnell brothers at Bluestone Vineyards are extremely passionate about the outdoors, nature and and our place alongside it. They are here to grow beautiful, expressive grapes that are nurtured into wines of distinction and place, showcasing the beauty of everything from a single moment with the sole purpose of sharing it with you and the ones you love.

The McConnell’s branched out from running a popular visitor attraction focussed on conserving British Rare Breeds by welcoming the addition of 15,000 grapevines to the family. Our goal was to create more opportunities to spend time doing the things we loved and do it more often. We love to spend time with friends and family, so naturally we decided to grow and create a product with passion and purpose that could play the social centre or the supporting role.

Life is for celebrating and you should celebrate more. The small things, the big things and the in between things. You don’t need an excuse, do what you like, do what you love! Just be sure to do it with ones you love with a glass of Bluestone in hand.

This selection simply brings together our four best known and best loved traditional British farmhouse cheeses. This is the perfect selection for those who want to have a supply of cheese as a household staple. This combination works wonderfully as a cheeseboard. Should there be any leftovers all four cheeses are also excellent for cooking with.

For more than 40 years, Neal’s Yard Dairy has been home to those cheeses made in Britain and Ireland that we believe to be the very best. Some are ‘territorial’ cheeses that have been produced in the same way for centuries, reflecting the unique climate and culture of their home region: Cheshire, Lancashire, Caerphilly, Red Leicester and many more. Others channel the tastes and inventiveness of their makers, often taking inspiration from the cheesemaking traditions of other parts of Europe.
