The Space Project in Manchester has become a key regional production space with more than 55,000 sq ft of stages and last autumn the facility was awarded £14m to fund an expansion plan.

New series of Cold Feet and The A Word will be filming at The Space Project in the coming months.

The north-east is also growing its production profile. Church Fenton Studios has been adapted as a studio facility midway between Leeds and York, and is the home of ITV’s period drama Victoria.
