The Backstage Centre is situated on the Thames Estuary Production Corridor’s High House Production Park in Purfleet-on-Thames, Essex. It is just 11 miles east of London City Airport, and offers an outstanding space to meet production, rehearsal, and training requirements.

At the Backstage Centre, we work with leading international and UK-based clients from various industries, including Film, Television and Broadcast, Games Industry, Motion Capture, Musical Theatre, Fashion, Dance, and Opera to Music Tours and Pre-Festival rehearsals. We understand that each industry has unique production requirements, and we are committed to meeting their individual needs.

The Backstage Centre provides ideal opportunities for work-based learning and has provided many hours of work experience to students-in-residence. The courses we offer are listed below and are available for you to apply for via South Essex College Group and University Centre South Essex.

Follow the link for more information about each programme, and you can also attend one of a range of Open Events throughout the calendar year. Click this link to find out more.
