Relocation To Wardour Street
In November 2006, Chappell of Bond Street closed its doors at 50, New Bond Street for the final time, reopening on November 11, 2006 at 152-160 Wardour Street.
The landmark, Grade II listed building has recently been restored, with three floors of retail space and houses one of the world’s most extensive collections of printed music and the most comprehensive display of Yamaha instruments in the U.K.
In the basement the printed music department stocks around 50,000 sheet music titles with 30,000 additional digital sheet music titles available online. The printed music department was awarded the "Printed Music Retailer of The Year" in 2006 at the Music Industries Association Awards.
The ground floor displays Yamaha Guitars, Brass and Woodwind, Keyboards, Digital Pianos, Electronic Percussion, Music Technology and Pro Audio products, with trial rooms.
On the first floor there is an oak-panelled piano hall, where customers can try Yamaha pianos ranging from small uprights to a full 9 ft. Concert Grand Piano. A series of lunchtime recitals in the performance space within the historic Piano Hall at Chappells commenced on September 26, 2007 and continued till June, 2008.

Famous quotes containing the word street:
“Italy is such a delightful place to live in if you happen to be a man. There one may enjoy that exquisite luxury of Socialismthat true Socialism which is based not on equality of income or character, but on the equality of manners. In the democracy of the caffè or the street the great question of our life has been solved, and the brotherhood of man is a reality. But it is accomplished at the expense of the sisterhood of women.”
—E.M. (Edward Morgan)
