Polestar Rehearsal and Recording Studios was originally located in the Ouseburn Valley cultural area of Newcastle-Upon Tyne. It was established in 1990 by Pauline Murray singer of Penetration. Thousands of bands and musicians have used the facility in its long history. Polestar has now moved into brand new, purpose built rehearsal space on St. Michaels Road in Byker. Four brand new ground floor rooms have been built with easy access, soundproofed and fully equipped.
