A free summer fair is being held at a Stevenage music studio this weekend, a year on from a “soul-destroying” flood which left the premises needing a complete refurbishment.

After sewage flooded SoundView Studios in Stevenage last June, owner Carl Dawson feared the worst.

He was forced to close SoundView for nine weeks, not knowing if he would ever be able to re-open.
