Great Western Studios has moved to a new purpose built studio complex, only 50 metres from our old building. We have always been under threat to vacate due to the creation of Crossrail and the new building will secure the future for our artists. After weeks of packing, the move took place the first week of November during four hectic days. However, everyone successfully managed the transit via the scaffolding ramp built between the old and the new building. The whole move was documented by Great Western Studios own Angelo Plantamura.

However, the move isn't all that's been going on this month.
