Manchester’s musical legacy is famous throughout the world. Perhaps less well know is the important part Stockport played. 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.
‘I Am in Love’ explores Strawberry’s rich heritage commemorating 50 years since the studio first opened welcoming the likes of Joy Division, The Smiths and The Stone Roses through its doors.
Join Strawberry historian Dr Peter Wadsworth on the last Sunday of each month at 2pm in Stockport Museum for a free guided tour of the Strawberry Studios: I Am In Love exhibition. Learn more about the objects and hear some of the stories behind the legendary Stockport studio. No booking required – simply meet in the Museum Reception area.
