The university has created an outdoor television set on campus.

UCLan's exterior teaching area offers fresh opportunities to learn and experience real industry practice within a controlled and safe environment.

The set features the external frontage of a pub called the Ashton Arms, a shop named M. K. Newsagents and two houses. A pavement and a road have also been created which will allow filming of external scenes using a range of props, vehicles, and even a green screen to use computer graphics to extend the set even further. It will be used in conjunction with the internal studio space in the nearby Media Factory.

Ideal for a variety of courses across the university, such as:

  • Film Production
  • Animation
  • Digital VFX
  • Forensic Science
  • Journalism
  • Dance Performance
  • Policing
  • Advertising
  • Photography
  • Paramedic Practice
  • Games Design
  • Acting

Available for use with industry.
