Footprints roots go way back to the early nineties and the free party scene. The “All weather Sherwood Forest Crew” put on many a party in their younger years culminating in a good following within the local community. As the members of the crew matured it was decided roots needed to be made within the city and after a stint a the “Staircase Club” and involvement in many local radio stations including “Power FM” premises were acquired in Radford and Footprint Studios was born.
Footprint studios has worked closely with Nottingham City Council, local schools and youth centres as well as The Youth Offending team and vulnerable young people for many years; providing workshops and experience days for young people and encouraging creativity through music and video. If you would like to know more information on the youth programmes available please contact us on our contact form.
Footprint Studios have been around for years making music and working within the Nottingham community. Footprint have been heavily involved with events such as the Rock and Reggae Festival on the Forest Recreation ground as well as the Nottingham Caribbean Carnival for the past twenty years. Our new premises, an old lace factory full of character in Radford, was run down and derelict but but we have worked tirelessly to bring it up to scratch to be the new home of Footprint Studios; home to artists, craftsman, musicians, sound systems, The Urban Worm, St Peters Car Wash and more. Using all the skills we have as a community we have refurbished the building and created a space to create in and put on arts events for the local community. All materials used for this transformation are eco-friendly, recycled and reused. Footprint Studios has an ethos of environmental sustainability.
Footprint Studios has PA system for hire and full in house music studios. The main studio space is also available to rent for art exhibitions, fashion shows, recitals, dance classes, meetings and many other events.
“Live room recording” is also available in our main hall making it ideal for pre-tour rehearsals.. We also have video production and green screen facilities. Please get in contact for more information on these services.
Footprint Studios also has a personal studios area and is home to artists of all kinds such as painters, wood workers, glass makers, ceramicists and more. Footprint Studios has many temporary rentable spaces to work on larger scale art works and can provide access to a variety of facilities and tool hire. There will always be helpful and skilled staff on site to assist with any project. Our aim is to build a thriving creative community to help people blossom on their own artistic journeys
COMING SOON – Footprint Studios will be opening a brand new café within an indoor Urban Community Garden.
