Interactive Music History Tours at Old Chapel Music CIC at Old Chapel Music Studios, Leeds, Until 25 February 2024, free entry - Visit now

Leeds has always had an exceptional music scene. There’s something about the do it yourself attitude and artistry in the city that has created multiple generations of great bands. Old Chapel Music Studios has been a cornerstone of this scene since 1992, having had the sounds of bands such as Red Lorry Yellow Lorry, Cud, Kaiser Chiefs, The Pigeon Detectives and Pulled Apart By Horses running through their machines. Alongside these more established names, they’ve supported and recorded countless projects and bands who’ve started in Leeds and continue to do so today. It now functions as a community hub as well as rehearsal and recording studio and they’re keen to continue this opening up to the community through interactive music tours.

Tours take place on the last Sunday of every month with a capacity of twelve people. You’ll see the historic side to the studio, learn about the building and the story of how Old Chapel came to be. You can also hear studio anecdotes from recording sessions with some of the bigger stars and get better acquainted with the work Old Chapel do in the studio beyond music.

As it’s an interactive tour, you’ll have the opportunity to have a go at playing, singing or recording each other, getting hands on with the process rather than just being told about it. Who knows, you could be singing into the same microphone that has been the vessel for No.1 hits and indie anthems.

At the end of the music tours the floor will be opened up for a discussion about the future of Old Chapel Studios. Everyone’s input is welcomed as the studio’s are keen to hear other people’s ideas and suggestions about how their future could look.
