The Woolpack Studios is a community music studio and rehearsal space in the centre of Otley, run by Richard Sabey and Jennifer Pugh.
MUSIC SESSIONS FOR ALL
We run five in person and online music sessions per week aimed at adults. Our aim is to make music accessible, inclusive and fun for everyone. We plan our sessions so that there will be something for everyone to have a go at, whilst building confidence and developing new skills along the way. Please see below for what sessions we have on offer!
The in person sessions are now at Otley Social Club so that we can get back to meeting in groups inside without feeling too packed in together. Otley Social Club is a wonderful venue with plenty of parking, a bus service, air conditioning and licensed bar. Roundhay Ukulele Group continues to meet at Lidgett Park Methodist Church hall.
Otley Social Club, Hollin Gate/Weston Drive, Otley LS21 2NS

We have loved recording and producing the music for the VISIT OTLEY 2020 Christmas Video! The song features Sally Egan on lead vocals, with lyrics written by Sally and Otley’s Town Poet, Matthew Hedley Stoppard. The video shows some of the wonderful independent businesses and local organisations, which make Otley such a great place to be! Enjoy!
