Manchester base for Peaky Blinders 6
The sixth series of Peaky Blinders will have a production base at Space Studios with filming set to take in various Manchester locations.
The production team on Series 6 has already set up at the facility, providing the hub for filming at various venues across the north west.
The period drama has used various northern locations since the first series, including Leeds, Ellesmere Port, Stanley Dock Liverpool, Keighley and Worth Valley Railway and Port Sunlight.
The show has also used the Black Country Living Museum in Dudley for scenes in all five series so far.
Also currently in production at Space Studios is Intergalactic, a new sci-fi comedy drama for Sky One.
Recent productions to have been based at the site include Mammoth Screen’s World on Fire for BBC One, Studio Lambert’s The Feed for Amazon and Warp Films’ Little Birds for Sky One.
Space Studios expanded last year with the launch of a new 30,000 sq ft sound stage, known as Space 06.
