Take your search for a film and tv studio to the streets of this amazing Northern city. There are options all over the city ready to meet your needs, from larger studios in the outer suburbs of West Gorton and Stratford to easily accessible studios in Spinningfield and Victoria.
Start your search for a film and tv studio in the city centre. You can find numerous options within Manchester’s inner ring in the historic districts of Spinningfields, Deansgate, and Piccadilly. Just outside the centre, you can find studios in Ancoats, near the Northern Quarter, or in the area around Bradford. A bit farther out of town, you can find larger studios in West Gorton and Salford.
When hiring a film and tv studio, the price will depend on the size of the space and the duration of the hire. For a short-term hire of a blank canvas venue with a basic equipment package, expect to pay approximately £40 to £90 per hour. You can find hire options for a longer-term hire for approximately £700 to £1200 per day. (All data from Tagvenue.com)
A film and studio hire should come with some basic fit-out; this may include basic lighting rigs, monitors and extra space for hair and makeup. You should be able to work with the studio staff to hire extra equipment such as broadcast or cine equipment, as well as props and sets. These extras may be available from the studio itself for an extra fee, or you may need to hire them from an outside source. The studio may have a team of recommended vendors and a crew that you can hire for your shoot.
Found an amazing venue within 10 minutes of looking! Really happy :)
I came across Tag Venue completely by accident and Sarah was unbelievably helpful in saving me valuable time and conducting the search on my behalf. I would not hesitate to use Tag Venue again.
It was really easy to find a wide range of potential locations, and I could contact many different venues with ease. Tagvenue allowed me to be very dynamic when organising my event. Would definitely use again!
