Stage Fifty to open third UK studio

Stage Fifty is set to open its third UK film studio as plans are unveiled for an eight-stage complex in High Wycombe. The new studio follows the opening of the company's other facilities in Farnborough and Winnersh. 

Temporary planning applications have been submitted to Buckinghamshire Council to support a Hollywood feature that will start shooting in 2022.  

An application for a permanent studio will follow later this year, transforming a 26-acre site located just off the M40 to the southwest of High Wycombe into a sustainable film studio for feature films and SVoD content-makers. 

The independent studio development, to be known as Wycombe Film Studios, will cover approx 295,000 sq ft and will support around 1200 jobs with an estimated £305m economic output (GVA). The sustainable plans include sound stages and production buildings with green credentials including  solar roofs for clean energy and recycled soundproofing inside the stages. 

90% of the construction materials are reusable with green spaces to be maximised across the site, and vertical garden walls on the stages to help purify the air and attract wildlife. 

A phased build is planned over the next 18 months, subject to planning.
