More than 40,000 sq ft of ancillary space is also available, including serviced production offices, prop stores, construction workshops, costume/makeup and break out areas.

The TBY2 site is supported with up to 10GB secure connectivity and 24/7 site security.

A building management system has been installed to optimise energy conservation, with built-in heating, cooling and ventilation in all stages. Transport between the main Bottle Yard Studios site and the TBY2 facility will be carbon neutral, with electric vehicle (EV) points and cycling provision supporting low carbon movement.

The three new stages increase the number of stages at The Bottle Yard Studios to 11.

The facility has cost £12m to develop.

Titles recently filmed at The Bottle Yard Studios include STARZ Original Series Becoming Elizabeth (premiering Sunday 12th June), Stephen Merchant’s BBC/Amazon series The Outlaws (series two airing now), Netflix sci fi family series The Last Bus and BBC dramas Chloe, Showtrial and The Girl Before.
