Due to the global outbreak of the COVID-19 virus and the worsening situation in the UK, we have taken the extremely difficult decision to close our rehearsal and recording studios in Brighton. Having seen how the virus has spread in neighbouring European countries, and as events continue to unfold in the UK, we feel that it is our responsibility to temporarily close our doors. It is imperative that we do everything within our power to stop the further spread of the virus and protect the most vulnerable members of our society.
Like many others, we will be severely impacted over the coming weeks and months, so we are asking for your help. If - and only if - you can afford it, please consider donating, purchasing a token for a future studio booking or buying a vinyl LP. We are a small business, with an even smaller team, and we don't have any contingency plans in place for a pandemic. When we built the studio back in 2015 we didn't just want to build some practice rooms, we wanted to build a community hub for like-minded creatives and artists. We haven’t asked for for anything before, and we have poured our hearts into this, and we hope that you can help us weather the storm.
As our building will be unused, we are reaching out to representatives from the NHS and other charities/organisations to see whether it can be re-purposed to support relief efforts during the pandemic. Please get in touch here if you would like to discuss further.
