The church is acoustically lovely to record in and the little room at the back makes a perfect control room for the engineers.

The church can be hired for music recording and concerts

Excellent acoustics combined with the rural location, free from external noise, make St Martin's Church a perfect venue for recording and performing music.

The area between the choir stalls and the pews is used for performing. The bell tower area at the back of the church is ideal for siting recording equipment.

Many leading musicians and record companies have used the church. Concerts take place regularly throughout the year.

Hire costs £200 per day plus a heating surcharge of £35 during the winter months (or £15 if the hirer's own heaters are used).

If you would like to hire the church either for recording or for a concert please contact us or phone 01635 253354.

We spent two days recording Bach. I personally very much enjoyed playing and recording in the beautiful church and have every hope that the final recording will reflect this.

Here are some examples of recordings made in the church...
