Factory St. Studios History
FSS was officially opened on Friday 27th February 2009 by Feargal Sharkey and MP Gerry Sutcliffe. It was huge success, we enjoyed Wilful MISSING,The Tempus, The Parangle and Quiet Rebellion performed songs from their debut album. Band videos were shown from Ash TV and Pluto Media alongside superb photography from Erwan Durand.
Feargal Sharkey commented:
“Music has an immense and positive power to knit our communities together and it is vital that facilities like Factory St can exist and thrive. Without a viable network of rehearsal rooms, practice spaces and grassroots venues the UK’s music scene could not retain its status as the world’s best and is vital that we protect and support these creative hubs. I have no doubt that Factory St. will prove a hugely positive addition to cultural life in Bradford and all its surrounding areas.”
