Emergency work to replace the air conditioning unit for the Courtyard Studio will be taking place next week starting on 3rd November. There will be some significant noise when some of the work is underway i.e. use of jack hammers to prepare the concrete base for the unit. This will be in the area near the bike rack. The noisy element should take 1-2 days. At this point, it looks like we can leave the studio itself available to book and use, but the noise will almost certainly preclude any recording work. Sorry for the short notice.
