We sell a variety of products in-store including guitars, ukuleles, drums, amps and music books. Gift vouchers, accessories, equipment, music gifts are always available in-store as well as fresh coffee and other refreshments in our communal area.

Core Music is also a key access point to community music in Northumberland. Our aim is to benefit the community by providing access to music for anyone, no matter their circumstances, age or ability.
