What is Parkside Mediahouse?

We are a stunning new media production facility in central

Birmingham (UK), housing four TV studios, the UK’s largest,

permanent green screen, six radio studios and several

large photography studios, all available for dry hire!

Managed by a team of experienced media professionals,

our friendly Commercial Manager, Andrew Prendergast

– a former independent producer and director of feature

films, television and commercials in the UK and USA – is

always happy to answer your questions on how we can

facilitate your next production.

Meanwhile, on-site, our Production Manager Hilary

Weston Jones, who has over 24 years’ broadcast industry

experience for the BBC (Countryfile, Panorama) and the

independent sector (Big Brother), will always be on-hand

to ensure your production runs as smoothly as possible.

Studios

The facility, built in 2013, is owned by Birmingham City University, with Parkside Mediahouse looking after the commercial hire of the media production studios. This enables us to provide an extensive pool of runners, experienced in all aspects of media and our facilities.

Three TV studios (A, C and D) are fully digitally interconnected, allowing you to easily and creatively mix content between our different spaces. Elsewhere, all our bookings include use of the green room, two dressing rooms (with showers, one with back wash), loading bay and goods lift, technical support and a runner. Post-production facilities are also available on request.
