Twickenham Film Studios is making a £1 million investment in kit in a bid to become the most up-to-date, best-equipped studio in the UK, according to Maria Walker, the woman who led the campaign to save Twickenham and is now its chief operating officer.

Speaking at an event held in the Rembrandt Hotel, Twickenham she said the studio complex had acquired three new mixing consoles for each of its theatres. The company is planning further kit installation and staff expansion between now and spring 2013.

Twickenham, which is known for films such as The Iron Lady and My Week With Marilyn, was on the verge of closure until it was rescued by property magnate Sunny Vohra in July 2012.
