A new contemporary music and events hub in Nottingham city centre, which will offer world class recording studios and education facilities, is currently in the works.
Development is underway at a huge 38,500 sq. foot site on Huntingdon Street site, which will soon house the Confetti Institute of Creative Technologies.
The new Confetti hub, which has been financed by parent company Nottingham Trent University, will feature cutting edge music studios, rehearsal rooms, recording and editing suites and a 300-capacity auditorium.
Parts of the development will be ready for students by October.
Craig Chettle, founder and chief executive of specialist technology education provider Confetti, told the Nottingham Post: ‘Our role is all about harnessing talent and creating the best opportunities for success.
‘We have always re-invested in our facilities to stay current but this development takes our provision for music and events to another level.
‘It makes Nottingham a “must go to” destination for contemporary music education. Students learning the nuts and bolts of the music and events industries will be guaranteed the best possible learning opportunities and will acquire the skills required by the industries they want to work in.’
