Alumni News

Jamie Walton (1991) has recently opened Ayriel Studios in the North York Moors National Park. It is the result of his love affair with the area that in 2009 saw him establish the North York Moors Chamber Music Festival, and in 2014 move there to live.

In a recent article with, he explains, ‘I knew that if I wanted to draw to the area the things that are important to me creatively, then at some point I would need a concert hall and a recording studio.’ He laughs. ‘I also had an instinct that a recording studio in this landscape would be transformative for artists, because I’d noticed that when musicians came to the festival, they’re blown away by how inspired they feel here, and how that in turn makes them work.’

We look forward to seeing the concert hall come alive!
