2021 has seen us open our brand-new music production creative hub in Queen’s Park, just a short ten-minute walk from our current Kilburn campus!
This exciting new project has seen us redevelop the site of the permanently closed Corrib Rest pub in Queen’s Park as part of a new four-year £2.5 million local community development project.
Situated at 76–78 Salusbury Road, only a five-minute walk from the Queen’s Park Underground and Overground station, the Corrib Rest pub has been closed since February 2015. Our plan is to transform the building into a second site for ICMP, expanding our existing 20,000 sq ft footprint by an additional 14,000 sq ft.
Our range of music production degrees, such as the BA Music for Film, TV and Games, BA Audio Engineering and MA Creative Music Production, will be taught from this new site, as well as ICMP's Music Industry short courses.
The redevelopment project will take place across several phases – with the first phase consisting of a high-end recording studio, state-of-the-art post-production facilities (including foley room), and mixing and mastering studio now open to students starting in September 2021.
Phase two of the project will be completed in 2022, consisting of a flexible events venue with performance space/small club, complete with a fully fitted PA system, lighting rig and pop-up cinema, plus a student café.
The final phase in 2022/23 will see the launch of further tech suites, classrooms, tracking suites and small collaboration spaces, as well as professional services.
