With weekly art & design, sound & lighting and guitar & drums session, monthly gigs and 6 weekly gallery art exhibitions, and one off projects exploring everything from mental health and World War One through performance art.
So many of our members have moved on to further education focusing on music and music technology and most are still performing regularly on the local or wider music scene.
We are still here for you!
We still have Rehearsal rooms and Recording opportunities - look on AAA Records tab for latest information.
Thanks for all your support and creativity- you still own this space so keep your ideas coming.
Enjoy these images from our final gig on 20 December 2014 by fabulous local photographer Warren Millar.
We also looked at the Minor 7 Chord, for Gm7 Cm7 and Dm7
It's only one shape that we move around the neck:
The coming comedy night is the forth 'Stand Up At The Studio' event, run by local comedian Dominic Stephens. The night gives emerging comedians a platform to explore material and polish their acts.
All making return visits to join in our 1st year party.
'The acts we have had appear up to now have always had a local feel to them, we have had various acts from Widnes, Runcorn, Liverpool, Manchester and the furthest traveling funny man comes from Cambridge. The fact that acts want to travel and return means we have something special in Widnes and long may it continue.
The reason for starting and building a regular comedy night in Widnes was simple, there isn't one and when there are they aren't in a specific area or venue that lends itself to the stand up scene, unlike The Studio which is ideal. There is also a lot of people who want good comedy and cant afford a massive ticket price, that's why The Stand Up @ The Studio night lets you see new and upcoming comics for very little along with a great venue for the evening. Then going forward we would look to have this as a regular fixture on the stand up circuit.'
"The was not enough comedy in Widnes, in the surrounding areas, in fact not at all"
A Documentary film created by Edge Hill University Students, Sean Dyas, Adam Jennings, Kaine Ranjbar and Alyshia Riley.
The film covers Access All Areas a community youth project in Widnes.
With help from Studio members Tony Reilly, Stephen Cole, Genevieve Baker and Stuart Brown, the film introduces the project and the space, going into detail about how they not only facilitate but also support and help the people who try and help improve the skills of the people who come, if that is what they are interest in doing. Otherwise they explain how it is also a safe place that young people can come to if they so wish.
The Documentary follow's CeReal, a band who frequently uses the studio, who explain the reason why they chose to come to the Studio, how the support workers have helped them progress as musicians and how important the studio is in their lives.
Having been through a similar background, the rapport become apparent and as we see the both Stephen Cole and CeReal bands member and what each have to say about the other.
The Documentary ends on a poignant note as Stuart Brown describes the situation with the funding at the moment. But you'll have to watch that to find out.
