Rate Card (guide)

Whilst we will tailor a rate card to your specific needs the following is a working price list for the various studio facilities.

All prices are plus VAT. Prices valid from 1st May 2024. Unlike a lot of studios we aim to offer a more “pick & mix” approach to help you keep within budgets so you don’t pay for areas or services you don’t need. A wider discount is offered when all studio spaces* are booked together each day.

A full day is upto 10hrs and a half day upto 4hrs (am or pm hrs). Overtime is charged at £70 per hr or part of an hr (when over 10hrs else a min full day rate applies). Minimum booking is a 1/2 day. Weekend use plus 40% on full day or half day rates. Discounts will be offered for a continuous booking of 5 days or more.

A full day is based from 8am to 6pm allowing upto 10hrs to optimise your booking time. Overtime is charged after 6pm (even if the booking starts after 8am). When booking studio time you should account for your set up and strike time – to help avoid any overtime periods being incurred.
