Shinfield Studios

Shinfield Studios is an exciting new Film, TV Studio & production hub currently in development. Phase 1 is operational (four stages, workshops and offices) with more facilities opening on a rolling basis over the next 2 years.  Phase 2 is due to be completed by March 2023, bringing five new stages, workshops and offices and Phase 3 is due to be completed by Summer 2023 with Phase 4 and 5 by 2024.

Building on the UK’s global reputation for producing world class content, Shinfield Studios will offer film and television producers nearly 1 million square feet comprised of 18 new purpose-built sound stages, workshop and mill space plus a contemporary office environment and post production facility.

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 were completed in November 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 was granted full planning permission in December 2021.

Alongside the four sound stages already constructed, a further five are due to open by the end of March 2023, with four more by the end of July 2023, with completion of the entire 18 stage facility by the middle of 2024.

“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.”
