Strawberry Studios: I Am in Love

Strawberry Studios: I Am in Love

Friday 27 January to Sunday 28 January

This year long exhibition at Stockport Museum celebrates the iconic studios which welcomed The Stone Roses, Joy Division, The SmithsPaul McCartney and The Buzzcocks.

"Founded in 1967, Strawberry Studios became one of the finest professional recording studios outside London.

Home to pop group 10cc, the studios offered technical opulence never seen before in the North. By day Strawberry entertained a diverse array of artists – from local brass bands to international headliners. But by night the Studios were transformed into a rich playground of experimental sound, paving the way for a new generation of post-punk Manchester music."

The exhibition includes memorabilia, musical instruments, pieces of the recording equipment, and a mural to the artists who recorded on site.
