Shinfield Studios

Shinfield Studios is an exciting new production hub currently in development. Building on the UK’s global reputation for producing world class content, this new Hub will offer film and television producers 18 new purpose-built sound stages within a development exceeding 1 million square feet together with workshop and mill space plus a contemporary office environment and post production facility, on a scale to service the largest blockbuster productions.

Shinfield Studios will create a substantial and diverse range of employment opportunities and will enhance the innovation-led strategy at the Thames Valley Science Park established by our partner, the University of Reading, in conjunction with Wokingham Council.

Planning & Development

In March 2021 planning permission was granted for 4 temporary film stages, which are due to be completed by Autumn 2021. In June 2021, full planning was submitted to create a permanent, much larger, state of the art film and television production complex on over 65 acres of land at the Thames Valley Science Park in Shinfield, Berkshire, England. This main site, subject to planning, would be completed and open towards the end of 2023.

“Shinfield Studios will make a quantum difference to the number of projects able to film in the UK which in turn will generate significant inward investment to the UK and create economic benefit to the local community.”

Nick Smith, Managing Director
