The Sound Cafe has been in operation for over 25 years, working across the full range of audio recording sectors: music; broadcast; voiceovers; plays; audio books; children's albums and even party political broadcasts.

Our team of experienced producers and engineers can ensure all your sound recording needs can be met to the highest quality. Alternatively, bring your own producer or engineer.

Whilst we offer a large selection of equipment, anything from a grand piano to specific microphones and effects units can be sourced locally.

The start of 2015 sees a frenzy of activity, from projects to full albums, by Fred Deakin(Lemon Jelly), Jerry Forde’s New Phoenix Jazz, Alaistair Savage and FunBox (former Singing Kettle).
