For all your music making needs :)
This review is especially helpful for those who have or use the following: Wheelchair, Powerchair
Accessible rehearsal space and recording studio with first class staff
Transport & Parking
Free parking right outside the door. Can be busy at times but I've never failed to find a spot.
Level entry and double doors to access. Doors are heavy and not automatic but they are by reception desk and the staff are always on the lookout for musicians with equipment so are really fast to open the doors and welcome you in. All studio spaces have wide enough doors to comply with access requirements and its all on the level. One of the rooms has a stage area which does not have wheelchair access but the staff are quick and efficient at configuring the room to suit by placing drumkit, mics etc on the floor level area if no other room is available. Lighting levels are low throughout.
Toilets are easily accessible *I've only checked female toilet. The cubicle is large and there is room to side transfer to the right of the toilet for left side transferring from chair. However there are no grab rails so if you require them you might struggle. Toilet is all painted white with a light colour floor so colour contrast is not brilliant but it's a (usually) clean usable facility.
All staff are fabulously friendly and extremely efficient at being helpful :) (especially Gary) Great guys ensure you have great fun and return time and time again. I've been rehearsing here for years and have seen other people with disabilities coming and going from time to time and have always been impressed with the staff, their attentive friendly nature and willingness to help everyone and anyone who comes through their doors.
Anything else you wish to tell us?
People with certain visual impairments may struggle with low lighting and lack of colour contrast but I'm pretty certain the staff will provide assistance and additional lighting when required.
