The owners of Twickenham Film Studios have announced a £15 million investment plan to redevelop the site.
The plan includes a state-of-the-art TV studio including audience participation, upgraded sound production studios, a second sound mixing suite and the construction of a brand new entrance building creating new public spaces with flexible workspaces.
A planning application for the project has been submitted to Richmond Council with building expected to begin later this year and completed by October 2022.
Cara Sheppard, managing director of Twickenham Film Studios, De Lane Lea, said: “Twickenham Film Studios has a rich heritage, having made some of history’s most iconic Hollywood and British films and TV shows. The redevelopment is such an important turning point for our iconic studio, the significant investment in the regeneration and expansion of the site and its facilities will enhance our whole studio campus.”
“We are investing heavily into securing the best industry talent as well as the latest technologies that combined will ensure the next chapter for Twickenham Studios is even more successful than the last.”
A number of new studio projects are already underway in and around London, including Dagenham East, Sky’s new studios at Elstree, a new development in Edmonton, and a new facility in Reading.
