Pinewood Group launch plans for Screen Hub UK
Screen Hub UK
Pinewood Group has launched plans to create a ‘Screen Industries Global Growth Hub’ called Screen Hub UK adjacent to the world-renowned Pinewood Studios in Iver Heath, Buckinghamshire.
The Screen Hub UK will be based on a 77-acre site to the south and immediately adjacent to the existing world-famous studio which will be expanded to include:
- a 350,000 sq ft film-inspired international visitor attraction – ‘Pinewood Studio Experience’
- new film production facilities with ‘live’ links to the Experience of up to 350,000 sq ft
- an educational training and skills hub
- a creative industries business growth hub
- a green campus.
As well as the visitor attraction, the plans include additional production space, a business hub and an education facility that will provide a substantive and valuable social investment to inspire the next generation of filmmakers.
The proposals will make a total investment value of c.£450m. Estimates are that it is likely to result in the creation of around 3500 new jobs, add £230m p.a. into the economy, and £125m p.a. into the tourism industry. The scheme comes at a time when the need for investment in economic recovery has never been higher.
