Are you a musician or in a band based in Loughborough? Then we want to hear from you!

We are looking for the sounds of Loughborough, and our new pop-up recording studio in the town centre is just the place to find them. This space gives you the chance to record your music with the assistance of a professional sound engineer and all instruments provided, then have it distributed through a dedicated website - and all for FREE.

All of our recording advance booking studio sessions are now full, but we are running two drop-in studio sessions open to all!

Wed 27 Jan, 18:30 – 21:00: FULL BAND JAM SESSION

Sun 31 Jan, 11:00 – 14:00: SONGWRITING WORKSHOP

This event is part of Can Altay's commission for Market Town, Loughborough Records Presents Presence. Influenced by many other examples of how popular music produced in specific locations has created a specific ‘sound’ that has reached out to audiences much further than the location in which it originated (e.g. Detroit, Bristol, Manchester and many others), Can Altay is interested in the possibilities music has in creating a wider impact and engendering a positive perception of the place of origin.

For & Against: Art, Politics and the Pamphlet

For & Against: Art, Politics and the Pamphlet is a collaborative project between Radar and Loughborough University academics Dr Gillian Whiteley and Dr Jane Tormey, RadicalAesthetics-RadicalArt (RaRa).

This engaging programme responds to research into the political pamphlet and the relevance of the pamphlet for contemporary art practice. It has comprised a series of public workshops, a symposium, a Charnwood Museum exhibition and Pamphlet Day, a day-long public event in the town centre. Jane Tormey and Gillian Whiteley are working on a forthcoming edited book, ‘Art, Politics and the Pamphleteer’, to be published in the RaRa series by Bloomsbury.

This exhibition shares elements of this project, including new pamphlets by artists Patrick Goddard, Ferenc Gróf and Rory Pilgrim, commissioned by Radar; a selection of historical pamphlets from the Art of the Pamphlet exhibition; documentation of a series of pamphlet workshops led by artists Freee, Ruth Beale, Ciara Phillips and Little Riot Press and artworks inspired by For & Against workshops led by artists Chiara Dellerba and Sarah Green, and writer Alison Mott.
