Shopping with Boosey & Hawkes
Boosey & Hawkes has built a reputation for expertise in music retailing across more than 200 years. Boosey & Sons first opened as a bookshop in 1792, focusing in the following century on the sale of music and instruments, and promoting a popular series of London concerts. William Hawkes started his music business in 1865, specialising in instruments and sheet music with sales soon spreading around the globe. Rather than competing, Leslie Boosey and Ralph Hawkes joined forces in 1930 to create a new international company. The music shop at 295 Regent Street became a regular destination for classical music shopping in London's West End until 2004 when the shop moved online to become The Shop at, expanding its operation to reach 60,000 customers worldwide.

The Shop at also provides online retail services to third party organisations and operates successful retail partnerships with ABRSM, Trinity College London and London College of Music. For further information contact
