Historic Granada studios to re-open as Manchester film space

Posted on: Wednesday 18th of July 2018

GranadaAllied London has announced the creation of ALL Studios, which will provide studio space for TV, film and music production at the former ITV studios. Since acquiring Old Granada Studios in 2013, Allied London pledged to retain the heritage of the estate, which included the main studios. As part of its plans, it will look to create a further 20 studios over the next two years, particularly for TV and music.

Melanie-Jones-270x310Allied will put “world-class production and studios facilities at the heart of Manchester city centre”, they claim, with seven separate indoor stages, an outdoor filming lot, and additional studio spaces promised over the next two years. “We are currently looking at different options for how to con­figure All Studios” said ALL Studios managing director Melanie Jones. “We don’t want it to be just one type of studio – we want to keep it economical as a four-waller, as well as offering facilities for shiny-floor shows.”

“Filming enquires have increased three fold, the industry has come to us without us undertaking any form of marketing , so far the business has developed by word of mouth” says Kerry Clark, ALL Studios manager. “The demand for our studios has been astounding not only from the UK but also US based filming companies.

“Most recently Old Granada Studios has been home to the BBC production To Walk Invisible along with US/UK collaboration Snatch TV Series starring Harry Potter’s Rupert Grint and Gossip Girl’s Ed Westwick, among others. It’s really showed us the potential for this wonderful, historical property we have in our hands, now we want to consolidate this interest and really create a business here and Old Grananda Studios”
