Sands Studios is a long-standing independent film and costume studio in an 18th century listed building in Rotherhithe. The Studios have been responsible for many well-known films and productions, and are a living, working business in the heart of London. The costume and props departments supply film, television and theatre companies, including recent productions such as The Queen.
After tea and coffee on arrival at 10.30, we will learn about the history of the 18th century building where Sands have been based since 1975. We will then be shown one of the films created by the Studios, followed by a light lunch. After lunch we will visit the working costume department and workshops, stages, film sets and if there is time, the picture archive. Please note, there are steps in the building as it is an old warehouse. The visit will end at approximately 3.30pm.
