Big thanks to RS Studios for last-minute PA hire

We wanted to extend a huge thanks to Bristol rehearsal and recording studio RS Studios, based on Feeder Rd, for their charitable help in lending us a PA system over Christmas!

The PA system in our Large Hall broke just days before our pensioners’ Christmas lunch and our members’ Christmas party – panic! The guys at RS Studios stepped in and loaned us a top-notch system over the festive period. We’re extremely grateful for their help and support.

They provide rehearsal and recording studio space for musicians, plus PA and van hire. Go say hello at:
