OUR STUDIO FACILITES ARE SHUT DURING LOCKDOWN

Although we comply with Government Guidelines for COVID 19 Safeguarding and could operate recording sessions and live performance videos we have shut our facilites during Lockdown.

The new studio space enables us to maintain 2 metre social distancing. Hand sanitiser is provided, and all studio equipment is cleaned after every use, in addition there is space outside to sit and relax. Please contact us to book a day in the studio. The studio time and engineering staff are paid by grant funding from Youth Music. After the session, our engineering staff will be pleased to mix your tracks or provide you with files that you can mix at home.
