Troubadour to open second London film studio

Troubadour Theatres is opening a second London film and TV studio, based in Brent Cross Town, north London. 

The news follows the annoucement earlier this year that the performance venue group was launching Troubadour Meridian Water Studios in Enfield. 

Troubadour Brent Cross Studios will open in early 2022, with the deal having secured a three-year lease on 150,000 sq ft of space, (the former Toys ‘R’ Us building on Tilling Road), from Argent Related and Barnet Council - the joint venture delivering Brent Cross Town, London’s 180-acre, £7bn new park town - marking the most significant tenancy to date at the development.

The facility includes Troubadour’s largest single studio space in any of its London sites, at27,000 sq ft, along with offices and workshops. 

A Skills Academy will also be launched with 150 new TV and film industry training opportunities planned in the first three years.

Oliver Royds and Tristan Baker, CEOs and founders at Troubadour Theatres, commented: “We are enormously excited about coming to Brent Cross Town and working together with the Barnet Council and Argent Related. 

“We strongly believe that Troubadour Brent Cross  Studios will quickly become an integral part of the community in the heart of an area going through huge regeneration. Our Skills Academy will create an immediate positive and demonstrable local impact that we hope will become a catalyst for employment within the Borough.”

Helena MacKenzie from Film London said: "We are delighted that a great space such as this is being utilised for Film & television production.  With no sign of production slowing down in London, its launch is very timely and we welcome the investment into this very accessible area of London. 

"We look forward to working closely with all the partners not only to ensure continued first-class production in the capital but also assist with providing training & employment opportunities to the area as a result of this studio complex."
