Kent’s Premier Value For Money Rehearsal Studios.

                                                      COVID 19 (CORONA VIRUS ) UPDATE

Firstly, hope you are all well and staying safe during the current pandemic !

As you are probably aware, Riverside Studios/ Drumzone have been closed in line with the Gov. guidelines since the end of March. However, with the current restrictions being revised and we appear to be slowly coming out of the lockdown, we thought an update of our plans for re-opening the studios would be informative .

Our plans are ,we reopen for business on Sat 11th July ,and open the diary to take bookings from 11th June.

In order to make the studios as safe as possible for customers and staff, we will be implementing the following.

1. Each studio now has its own external/internal entrance.

        Vox room-- Main entrance

        Wilko room-- Middle side door

        Stones room – New end door

        This will keep the contact of different band members to a minimum

2 .The 2m social distancing is achievable in all rooms, and there will be markers on the floor to help with this.                                                       

3.  Numbers in the rooms will be restricted to,1-4 in the vox room ,and 1-5 in wilko and stones .


4. Each room will be cleaned and hard surfaces sanitised after every session, air con. Units and extraction fans have been serviced.

5. We would prefer if you can bring your own mic. Although the studio mics. will be dismantled and sanitised.We have mics.for sale in the shop from £34.99. 

6.  All hire equipment will be cleaned and sanitised before use.

7 The shop will still be open and restocked with usual breakages (strings, sticks, leads, drumheads etc), restricted to 2 person at a time, the floor will have the 2m markers.

As you will all be aware, the pandemic has had a detrimental impact on all business and the economy, we have not escaped those effects,because of this,we will have to make the following alterations to our booking,payment and some of our T&C.

All future bookings will have to be paid for in advance ,this can be done via cash or card at the studio,card over the phone or paypal via our email riversidestudiosdartford@yahoo.co.uk

If needed, there will be a 2 hr limit to pay the fee, if we do not receive the fee in that period,, then the room will become available again.

Any extra payments on the day(equip.Hire,retail .snacks etc )can be paid for at the desk by one person only at the end of the session.

We are now operating a “No Cancellation “ policy and therefore no monies will be refunded if a band cancels (at anytime) so please make sure the band can honour the booking and all band  

members are available before you book and pay for your session.We cannot sustain the studio with last minute unpaid cancellations so your cooperation is appreciated .

There are some outstanding cancellation fees which still need to be paid by different bands which apply to the period before the lock down.

We have used the lockdown time to make some changes (for the better we hope !)

The entrance/exit to the Stones  room is now on the end of the unit in the rear allyway.

This allows us to make the Wilko room larger (same size as the Stones room) and hopefully will be used as a multi use room in the near future.

Dan is still offering drum lessons via Skype, please call him on 07772 475003.

We are looking to use the studios more during the day time ,so will still be offering a discount for off peak times.

Our new prices, both peak and off peak ,are available on our website, as are our terms and conditions ,photos ,etc.

Any questions or queries , call Alan 07804 107928 or our land line 01322 394964 and leave a message if you prefer.

We are missing the rock and roll of all the bands that use our studios and cant wait to get started again, but more importantly ,stay safe and well !!!
