Recording Studio

A new community recording studio will be located at the City of Palmerston Library and will provide an inclusive audio-visual facility, accessible 24/7 for the Palmerston community.

This facility will enable us as a community to embrace our diversity, share our stories through music and continue to invest in arts and culture within Palmerston.
