Our entertainment centre has a colourful history as a TV & Film Studio boasting a prestigious credits list of national networks & beyond
Before it became Epic, our studios served nearly 60 years as a live filming organisation formerly home to Anglia Television and ITV Anglia. The studios have produced some of the most popular shows aired on UK television. The studio has been used for programmes like game show ‘Sale of the Century’, Roald Dahl’s ‘Tales of the Unexpected’, children’s show ‘Knightmare’, crime drama ‘The Chief’ and more recently chat shows such as ‘Trisha’ and ‘The Wright Stuff’.
In 2012 Epic Studios was acquired by Norwich-based production company Extreme Video, wholly owned by current-serving CEO and local entrepreneur Jonathan Thursby. In a strive to sustain employment at the facility which was unmanageable under public funding, the complex was completely repurposed into a brand-new music and sports arena for the region with subsequent investment in state-of-the-art sound and lighting equipment of over £500,000, securing Epic’s spot on the map as East Anglia’s definitive venue for live events. The Studios now play host to the most exciting local, national and global acts delighting Norfolk audiences with the best sound quality in East Anglia and the most thrilling live acts around.
Today, when the studio is not hosting the latest live performers, it is once again being used as a film and production studio. The Epic Broadcast Team serve as a one-stop shop for television, film, promo and music video productions with a dedicated location film crew equipped with the latest tech. The team hire kit, studio space and staff out to freelancers and high-budget productions alike, boasting a prestigious client base including BBC, Sky TV, ITV, National Geographic, Discovery, Channel 4, Channel 5, Netflix and more.
