About

Manchester Studios

The old Granada Studios were located on Quay Street in Manchester. Purpose built in 1954 by founder Sidney Bernstein as part of Granada Television.

The facilities were equipped to do both recorded and live filming, and were the headquarters for Granada (latterly ITV) between 1956 and 2013. Until 2013 the Quay Street studios were the oldest operating, purpose-built television studios in the United Kingdom.

The studios were home to many great television programmes such as Coronation Street, King Lear with Sir Laurence Olivier, Brideshead Revisited, Cracker and The Royle Family. The studios have also been the start of many glittering careers and notably is the venue in which the Beatles gave their first ever television performance in 1962. In 2013 ITV Granada and ITV Studios relocated to a new home in Salford.

From 2016 we have been refurbishing these iconic studios, adding new state-of-the-art facilities to support production requirements today and growing the number of studios and stages to the current portfolio of fifteen studios and stages. So far, we have supported production of a wide range of new television programmes and feature films, including BAFTA and Oscar winning productions. Now we are pleased to now share with you Manchester Studios, a space reborn and ready for a new creative community.
