Save Bray Film Studios from Luxury Housing Development!

4,654 Signatures Goal: 10,000

UPDATE: SAVE BRAY STUDIOS NOW!!!!! We are at a critical point in our campaign to save this once thriving part of the British Film, TV and Music Industry, turned into an empty shell to gain permission to build luxury housing!

Bray Studios is part of our great cultural history with the main house dating back to the 1600’s.

The iconic Bray Studios, home ofHammer Horror Films, the early roots of the special effects and classic movies in Britain and the cherished venue for top British musicians and rock bands is under threat of being turned into 7 “executive homes”.

We have a comprehensive list of eminent directors, producers, musicians and rock stars, who wanted to book stage space and were turned away.Just weeks after bands such as Kings of Leon, Amy Winehouse, Judas Priest, Eric Clapton and Pink Floyd were all gracing the stages rehearsing for sellout international tours, the studio was empty.The management says because it was no longer a viable business,but the 60 years of success up until that point would prove otherwise!

With UK government investment in the film and creative industries and technical training at an all time high, how can we expect more jobs, industry growth and a return on taxpayer investment if there is a lack of dedicated studios where those industries can thrive?

Your support on this petition can help us show what desperate need the UK Entertainment Industries has for studio space such as Bray. Are you a Hammer Horror lover sad to see an end to an era of historic cinema? Are you a tour or location manager whose enquiries were ignored or turned down when you tried to rent space? Are you a film industry employee tired of having work move to other countries with competitive tax benefits because of dwindling space to shoot in the UK?LET US KNOW!

The British Film and Music Industries NEED YOUR SUPPORT.

Please help us by signing this petition.

Thank you!

Highlights

Bray Studios is a small, but incredibly vital part of the facilities on offer for film work in this country. Too often when other studios are full, Bray is the only place we have managed to find a solution to out needs. I have used the studio to shoot several of my films there; most recently, The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus.

historic studios need preserving . Many productions are using rundown deserted factory sites instead. Save Bray!!

We need more studio space. As simple as that.

This studio must be saved, it is part of our heritage and should be an integral part of our film and music industry. It should not be handed over to developers.

This would be a real tragedy if this happened. Bray Studios should be made a site of historic interest!

    I'm an acting student and the loss of Bray studios would be a devastating blow to British film & TV history and would rob future generations from having the privilege of working there or visiting, it's something that's alarming us a lot.
