A second television and film studio in London was unveiled within two days. Troubadour Theaters, which supplies Netflix, the BBC and MTV, has entered into a three-year lease on 150,000 square feet of space in Brent Cross, north London, which will open in early 2022.
Troubadour Brent Cross Studios seeks to attract ‘world-class TV productions and movie houses’ to the region, while opening a local Skills Academy, creating between 150 and 450 job opportunities with the aim of finding top talent under-represented.
The Skills Academy will be shared at Troubadour’s Meridian Water Studios site in Enfield, north London, a similarly sized complex which opened this year and hosted the Danny Boyle film. Yesterday and BBC1 entertainment show Small mix: research.
The founders of Troubadour Theaters, Oliver Roys and Tristan Baker, said: “We have a firm belief that Troubadour Brent Cross Studios will quickly become an integral part of the community in the heart of a rapidly regenerating area.
The move follows the announcement of the £ 20million ($ 26.5million) installation of RD Studios in West London, led by RD Content founder Ryan Dean and unveiled ago barely two days.
Other sites across the UK are popping up quickly as more productions move to the country and studio skills and space are invaluable.
