The Northern Studios
The Northern School of Art is pushing ahead with an exciting plan to establish a 30,000 sq ft commercial film and television sound stage facility and studio complex ‘The Northern Studios’ right on campus! These facilities will allow students at the Northern School of Art an extraordinary opportunity for access to industry guest speakers and the possibility of work experience on professional film and television programmes, as well as having access to a brand new television and film studio. In addition we have a 129-seater theatre space already in use for students. It is intended that the studios will be used by the ever-growing number of major commercial production companies who film and work in the North East. Potentially, you will have access to working studios right on your doorstep!
