Sam Newsom Centre

Newly Refurbished Dedicated Music and Performing Arts Centre

Named after Ambrose William 'Sam' Newsom, a former County Education Officer for Holland County Council, the Sam Newsom Centre underwent a complete modernisation in 2017, with new lighting, flooring and decor, bringing it firmly into the 21st Century.

Boston College's Music and Performing Arts students are based at the centre, where three distinct floors cater to specific creative disciplines. 

The Sam Newsom Centre boasts excellent facilities, including DJ suites, recording studios equipped with Cubase SX, FL Studio 11, Ableton Live, the latest VST Instruments and samplers, an ICT suite and a incredible auditorium famed for its acoustics. These amazing facilities allow high-level independent music production and professional recordings.

The label is the creation of the College's HNC Music students, and primarily serves to release new music into the market, recording artist's tracks, providing promotion, as well as arranging gigs and performances throughout the local area.
