This year, due to Covid management, we will be closed for Christmas from the 18 December - 4 January this second date is currently under revision due to the College's requirement for Covid testing prior to the start of term.  As a result, it is unlikely that the EMS will open until January 11. Please contact ems (@gold.ac.uk) for a further update.

The EMS supports the Unit for Sound Practice Research (SPR), and a wide range of concerts and events throughout the year.

For currently enrolled music students, further details can be found on the Electronic Music Studios VLE page.

Bookings can be made online via LORE.
