Bell Studios Launch Party, 15/01/15

As a Chiswick resident, a former Tech Music School (now BIMM) mature student, and someone who often works in Acton near to what was for years simply Bell Percussion, the awesome drums store, I couldn’t have been happier to find out that the shop was expanding into rehearsal studios in 2015 and having a mid-January launch party with all the bells and whistles (erm, so to speak!).

Bell Percussion, the store, is still going strong and showcasing its usual vast array of drums and percussion instruments of all kinds upstairs in what is now called the East building. There are now two additional studios with drum practice and band rehearsal rooms, in two separate buildings, and a performance room, downstairs at the back of the shop. The East Studio and the performance room are in the same building as the shop.

I left with some very orange, lovely goodies and a room hire discount sheet, so now I’m all ready to go! 🙂
