  • 35,600 sq ft of production office and support space

Antony Iredale, Founder of Location Collective, commented: “We are hugely excited to be launching our third film studio in such a prime geographical location for film and TV production, and very proud to have created the first high specification film studio in the St Albans area at such a pivotal moment for our industry.
