Founded in 1998, Yellow Shark is based in the centre of Cheltenham, on the famous Promenade opposite the Imperial Gardens. The studio is airy and comfortable, furnished with the best equipment available. In amongst Cheltenham’s world-renown restaurants, shops, hotels, and festival sites, we offer a central location where artists and producers can relax – and deliver a top performance.

We are easily accessible from the Cotswolds, London, Wales, Bristol, and Birmingham. Many artists use us because nowhere else can compete with the combination of our quality production and location. We often host artists appearing at the Cheltenham Jazz, Music, Literature, and Science Festivals, whilst our proximity to the racecourse makes us a favourite with racing pundits.


With a live room, dry room, and booth, we are able to offer four degrees of separation. With our range of equipment, you can be sure that we have the right tools for your project. Our engineers have a wide range of experience, from recording rock music to rap music; from producing audiobooks to redubbing blockbuster films, and you can be confident that you’ll be in good hands.

Our facilities include a kitchen and board room, both of which are available to all our users. Should you wish to relax in between takes, we have comfortable seating too. We can offer disabled access too – please contact us if you require this.
