Monday 6 July 2020
Our online shop is open and operating as normal but please note that there are still delays with some international deliveries due to the reduction of the number of international air flights. Packets going abroad from the UK might be held by the courier for a few days while waiting for cargo space. The same applies to new stock arriving with us but if we are out of stock of any product you should not be able to add it to your basket. As international flights increase all deliveries will start returning to normal time scales.

Tuesday 5 May 2020
Our online shop has reopened and is taking orders. For the moment orders are being posted on a weekly basis.

Monday 23 March 2020
In light of the UK Prime Minister Statement made at 8.30pm on Monday 23 March 2020 and given the fact that I do not have my post collected but always take it to the Post Office in person I feel that the only responsible action I can take is to temporarily suspend sales from my online shop. I run Creighton's Collection on my own from my home and this is the first time since I started Creighton's Collection in 2003 that it has shut. I will open again as soon as I can and apologise for any inconvenience this temporary closure may cause.

With a beautifully poignant libretto by poet and author Simon Rae, and enhanced by four outstanding soloists, this five-movement work explores the world from its creation through to its potential destruction by human action. Silvered Night, for piano and orchestra and featuring an exhilarating performance from one of the UK’s leading pianists, Mark Bebbington, is based on a work for solo piano to mark the 100th anniversary of the end of the First World War.
