Two Firms Find New Home At Bottle Yard Studios

News Image
Bristol Costume Services and MRU Services are the two latest additions to the creative hub at The Bottle Yard Studios.

Their arrival on site brings the total number of companies based at Bristol’s dedicated film and TV studios to 21, further bolstering the significance of the Studios as a centre for creative industry business in the West of England. The resident companies deliver a host of services including creative, digital, technical and audio/visual expertise, grips, transport, structural, fire and safety assistance.

Founded in 1990, Bristol Costume Services provides period and contemporary costume and accessories for hire to the theatre, television and film industry. With a hire stock of over 90,000 costumes, they also operate a professional workroom which delivers pattern cutting and making as well as costume alteration and maintenance, dying, breaking down and fitting services. Previously based in Filwood where their premises spanned over three floors, their new base in The Bottle Yard’s Main Warehouse building has enabled them to place their entire costume collection across approximately 30,000 sq. ft. on one single floor, with first floor workshop and office area conveniently situated above.

Louise Nipper of Bristol Costume Services said: "We're very happy to be successfully installed on site and part of such a friendly, like-minded community. It took our team of ten more than three weeks to move – with three 40 foot pantechnicon lorries transporting up to eight loads a day, each containing 30 rails of costumes. Fork lifting our machinery over a fire escape in a giant wooden box to be installed in our beautiful new workroom was certainly a sight to behold! After such a monumental task, it’s safe to say we’re never moving again. We’ve definitely found our forever home at The Bottle Yard Studios."

MRU Services supplies experienced health care professionals, primarily registered nurses, to support TV and film production companies. Their Unit Nurses help ensure the smooth running of productions by proactively supporting cast and crew to maintain overall health of productions teams. The company can also work closely with stunt co-ordinators and animal handlers, and in some cases can supply a fully equipped ambulance with appropriate staff including registered Paramedics.

Jim Gardiner of MRU Services said: "Since forming in 2007 we’ve supported a large number of TV production companies filming in the Bristol area, often based at The Bottle Yard Studios. The TV industry is expanding in Bristol and we’re really pleased to have moved on site to continue to our work as part of the Studios' tenant community."
