Bookings are made by the following methods only. www.thegranarystudio.co.uk and are not valid until confirmed and deposit paid.
Payment can be made with debit card or bank transfer. It is the responsibility of the artist to cover the cost of each session in full either in advance or on the day of the session. A 50% deposit is required to confirm all bookings over £100. A £20 deposit is required to confirm all bookings under £100. This deposit is non refundable or transferable. The remainder of the studio bill should be paid in full on the last day of your session. Late payment will lead to an additional fee of £10, and refusal to pay may lead to prosecution. No Call/No shows that have paid deposit will result in loss of monies and studio time, non refundable.
Failure to produce full payment will result in the studio withholding session time, all copies of recordings, masters or session files until all fees have been paid and funds have cleared.

All session files are deleted from The Granary Studios hard drives 90 days after session completion unless otherwise specified.

If a session is cancelled with less than 48 hours notice, full payment will be required to book further sessions.
