We are pleased to inform you that the Musical Instruments Framework has been awarded to six suppliers as below:

  • Haydock Music Ltd
  • Red Submarine Ltd
  • John Hornby Skewes Ltd
  • Academia Ltd
  • Heritage Music / Caswell Strings
  • Rimmer Music Ltd

We have almost received all the necessary paperwork from the suppliers and are currently in the process of completing the formalities in order for the framework to launch on the CPC website shortly.

We believe that the new framework will not only offer a wide choice of suppliers but also cover our members' requirements comprehensively for all aspects of Musical Instruments.

The framework is split into the following lots:

  • Lot 1- Brass Instruments
  • Lot 2- Woodwind Instruments
  • Lot 3- String Instruments
  • Lot 4- Percussion (inc drums)
  • Lot 5- Guitar Instruments
  • Lot 6- Keyboard & Piano Instruments

We would like to thank all members that have provided their feedback.

We hope members will carry on supporting the framework for their Musical Instruments requirements.

In addition to the above we are aware that the government has recently announced £18m worth of additional funding for Musical Instruments. Please see link below for further information:
