Due to current coronavirus restrictions, we have put extra measures in place to ensure the room is safe to use. Equipment in the room and touch points will be wiped down daily. We ask that you please sanitise your hands before entering the music room, wipe down any equipment you use, and then sanitise your hands when leaving. Due to the high risk of transmission associated with microphones, these have been removed. We’ve done everything we can to ensure the room is safe, but it’s really important that everyone using the room does their bit to keep it clean.
Using the Room
The room is open from 11am until 7pm seven days a week.
You are responsible for the room during your session. If you break anything or notice anything missing, please let us know. The sooner we know of a problem, the sooner we can sort it out.
Any members found to be using the room outside of their allocated hours are subject to having their access suspended. You must not lend out your key to anyone.
At the end of your session, please make sure you TURN OFF the heaters. If they are left unattended they can be a serious fire hazard. We’re always looking to improve the room, so if there is anything you would like to see introduced to the band room or want to have more of something then please let us know!
