Filming in the town centre

The Town Centre has been used for a wide range of film and television based projects over the years.

During the course of the filming itself it can generate interest that brings visitors into the centre. The subsequent broadcast can also encourage longer term interest and extra visitors.

It's also important that local interests and assets of the council and the wider stakeholder community are protected. Filming in the centre can also involve some disruption and inconvenience.

Town Centre Management ensures that these challenges are met to minimise any disruption. It also and ensures that film companies are offered the best support.
