Edwin Street Recording Studio Set to Open This Month

Young musicians in Bury will soon be able to make use of a professional recording facility when Edwin Street Recording Studio, a project between The Met and Bury Council opens on Monday 16 May.

The ambitious project, which started in September, has turned the disused building at the back of The Met into a high spec recording studio for use by the local community and professional musicians. The building will also feature a production suite for post production and learning.

David Agnew, Director of The Met comments, \”The studio has been created working closely with Youth Services and will enable young people of Bury access to some of the finest equipment and training in the region. The studio is a testament to Bury Council and The Met\’s investment in the community.\”

The recording studio was also given support from The Rock shopping and leisure destination, the Big Give and Manchester\’s School of Sound Recording (SSR). The Big Give scheme in December raised an impressive £9,000 from Met customers to buy equipment for the studio and SSR have been part of the consultancy process from the beginning.

David concludes, \”The recording studio builds on the role culture and the arts plays in Bury, creating more opportunities for the community. The Met will continue to develop and ensure a national identity and local pride for our borough.\”

The recording studio will open for a sneak preview on Saturday 14 May from 2-4pm. For more information, to book a tour or to hire the studio, please call The Met on 0161 7617107 or to see more about it go to www.themet.biz/backstage.
