Sound Stage

The centerpiece of The Backstage Centre is a fully soundproofed sound stage space, designed for arena-scale rehearsal and production work.

Artists, including Rod Stewart, Disclosure, Rudimental, Leona Lewis, The Foals, London Grammar and numerous theatre companies have hired The Backstage Centre as a rehearsal venue. Filming for adverts for brands including Pepsi Max and Pantene, and television such as The Only Way is Essex, have also taken place in our studios. All of which provide an invaluable opportunity for our students to learn in a real working environment.

You can see our sound stage in action here.
