Christchurch Recording Studios

A State of the Art Recording Studio

Christchurch Studios is an ex BBC recording studio bought by the school in 2001 and was the BBC flagship radio drama studio for many years.

There is a large live recording area, a dead room (which contains a foley pit), a large control room and various narration rooms and post-production suites, all equipped to industry standard.

As well as a facility for the school, the studio is run as a commercial recording facility, accommodating everything from voice-overs to radio drama, and all types of music recording, from bands to orchestras. If you’re interested in booking the space, find out more on the website.

On the second and third floors is the film department, consisting of video edit suites, post production sound suites, a large production office, kit stores, and other teaching areas. Again, commercial work is undertaken here, often using current students as crew.

As part of its long-term strategy, the Theatre School has resolved to relocate its media, film and television production work. The first stage of this strategy will involve the sale of Christchurch Studios. For further information, please use the drop-down below.

Facilities Include

Broadcast-standard digital audio and video recording studios and editing suites, used both for the training of students and for professional recordings.

Location

One of my favourite parts about BOVTS is that it feels ‘homegrown’. From the set to the costume, lighting, acting and sound, every single aspect of a theatre production or film is down to the students. The location of Clifton is so serene and the School being so small everyone knows each other and it feels so personal and special. Violet Morris, BA Professional Acting Student
