Well Met Conferencing is becoming an increasingly popular choice for film and TV directors who are choosing the University’s venues as the setting for documentaries, serial dramas, lifestyle programmes and adaptations.
Productions have included Channel 4’s Red Riding and Sirens and ITV’s A Touch of Frost and DCI Banks. Screen Yorkshire and various independent film companies have also chosen Well Met’s venues as a backdrop for their productions.
The University has such a wide range of venues – from classic listed buildings, picturesque and intimate settings to contemporary city centre structures. Facilities are really flexible and can be transformed into just about anything - our venues have been all sorts from hospitals to police stations to embassies!
The range of venues at Well Met provide ideal outdoor broadcast locations. City centre venues, the iconic Rose Bowl and the award winning Broadcasting Place provide modern backdrops with great options for panoramic city scenes. Sporting venues Carnegie Pavilion and the Headingley Campus are perfect for cricket, athletics and football scenes and the varied green spaces surrounding the venues, with their modern or historic backdrops, can be used for almost any outdoor setting.
