Nepenthe Studios provide Video Production, Audio Recording, Photography Services & Rehearsal Spaces in our spacious multi-format studio: we also film or record on location.
Nepenthe Studios Ltd was incorporated as a limited company and started trading in 2006. The studio is located in the village of Kings Cliffe, in Northamptonshire, a few miles to the west of Peterborough. It is a family run business with a professional outlook. In 2012, the business expanded into the adjoining unit which provides space for the dedicated rehearsal room and photographic studio with dressing room, additional to the live recording room.
Producer and Videographer at Nepenthe Studios, Spike Nepenthe has a solid background in music and music technology. He is a skilled photographer with digital SLR and video rigs, adept with both sound and lighting as well as digital editing.
He is supported by fellow Director, Barbara Sandbach, on finance and administration.
New Director from September 2015 joining us as Videographer, Siobhan O'Neill, has a widely-experienced background, covering film, promotions and sports. Siobhan's music tuition covers drums, singing and theory, with exceptional pass rates amongst her students.
The Stage Room is also fully air-conditioned and features a built-in stage, drum stage, PA and lighting, providing a realistic venue for rehearsal.
Some instruments are available for hire within the studio, in particular an extensive drum kit, but feel free to bring your own musical equipment.
Refreshments are available in our Reception Area - from a Flavia vending machine we offer teas (including herbal or fruit), a variety of coffees, hot chocolate, and there is chilled water - or you are welcome to bring your own. In the village, Kings Cliffe has a local pub and shops which can provide you with other refreshments.
