SPACE FOR STORY TELLING

Built in 1938 by the Ministry of Defence, Studio 212 is located on a former RAF maintenance base in Worcestershire and was used during the Second World War to house and distribute the engines and parts for the iconic Spitfire planes.

In 2012, the creative communications group DRPG purchased the 4.2 acre site and converted it into the largest corporate communication studio complex of its kind in the UK, housing creative communications solutions including design, events, exhibition, film, and digital production studios.

The unique and highly versatile spaces Studio 212 offers has resulted in the successful completion of many award-winning projects for audiences around the world.

The Atrium

The Atrium

The Atrium is an imposing and unique space that serves as a networking and exhibition hub.

Designed to easily accommodate unique branding and creative displays, The Atrium combines the original features of the 1930s building with the flexibility and comfort of a modern venue. A multi-purpose area, The Atrium immerses delegates in the event theme as soon as they arrive. Its inbuilt sound system and colour changing LED lighting control make it an ideal area for delegate registration, drinks receptions, catering, and exhibitions.

Studio 1

Studio 1

Studio 1 is the second largest and most flexible space we have. A perfect blank canvas, it allows us to create themed environments for formal conferences, product launches, team-building exercises, lavish gala dinners, and film shoots.

Studio 1’s versatility extends to vehicle access and its floor and walls can be dressed in the materials needed to create the right look and feel for your event. A fully-equipped control room, motorised rigging points, three-phase power, split level stage, large wing area, fully air-conditioned, three dressing rooms, and a green room. Studio 1 is fully-equipped to cost-effectively support creative event designs, including live broadcasts. Direct access to The Atrium and other meeting areas means delegates can easily move between different sessions – and experiences. Furniture is provided within the hire costs.

Studio 2

Studio 2 is a fully-equipped, soundproofed video recording and photography studio, which makes it an inventive space for meetings, breakouts, dinners, and team building exercises.

Studio 2 is equipped with a full lighting rig, three-phase power, CYC track, air-conditioning, control room and live broadcast capability. The space has direct access to The Atrium, leading to the meeting spaces and the backstage areas. It can be themed in a multitude of ways and is ideal either for our range of video-based, team building exercises, or as a large breakout space.

Studio 3

Studio 3

Our largest studio is a raw, industrial, and extremely versatile space. With white walls and concrete flooring, Studio 3 provides a complete blank canvas for unique launches, interactive conferences, dinners, breakout sessions, experiential events, and exhibitions.

With complete blackout capabilities, a control room, rigging points for lighting, sound and projection, as well as three-phase power, Studio 3’s 8m-high ceiling and open space allows for a multitude of creative uses. Like our other studios, this space also has access for vehicles and larger staging, set and exhibition elements. It also acts as an extension to Studio 1 and 2. Linking themed tunnels between the studio provides audiences with a sense of the unexpected when moving from one studio to the other.

Breakout Spaces

Breakout Spaces

The Red, Green, and Blue rooms are three meeting spaces that can be hired individually or as additional breakout rooms.

Each room has a modular table layout that easily configures to your needs and a wall mounted plasma screen that connects to a laptop. The Blue Room also has a ceiling mounted projector, a large screen, video conference facility, and a sound system. Each room has dimmable lighting, a wall-mounted plasma, and a conference telephone. The cinema has 30 tiered seats, each with a fold-out mini-desk. It is ideal for small presentations, viewings, and learning sessions, and is fully-equipped with projection, surround sound, and controllable lighting. The room is also fully air-conditioned.

It was an absolute pleasure to join everyone yesterday. I attend a few of these events around the world, which are all delivered extremely well, so as a result I have very high expectations! You exceeded my expectations on every front. I really enjoyed the ambition of the event, which was superbly delivered and everyone involved in putting it together should be proud - and know they have raised the bar! The energy and passion in the room was electric and the quality of discussion and debate first-rate. Please do take that back into your business areas. I’m a big fan of ‘strategy’ but I’m a bigger fan of strategic action and I have come away with great confidence that you will deliver. I would be very happy to help in any way possible, please just ask. Thank you.

Global Chief Operating Officer, WSP

Thanks to the whole DRPG team for making our New Directions Leadership Conference 2018 so fun and successful. For the great looking set, the detailed branding (even the yellow ‘smoke’), and the assets like the table tops and Hackathon boards. For perfect technical support, delivery of the audio/visual, and for guiding with the set-up of the iPads for the sensemaking conversations. For your slick professionalism and hand-holding throughout. And for actioning all requests from various parties during the event. For running the triumphant News Day, which flushed out the collaborative talents of our team. For smooth running of all logistics from registration to closing, and for arranging entertainment and timely refreshment. Your intelligent and inspiring approach to our conference shone through in the end result. I am indebted to your patience, pragmatism and can-do attitude, despite the unorthodox ‘redirect’ in latter stages of plans which began 9 months ago. Thank you for your generosity of spirit in this matter. And for David’s parking space – we thank you!

Head of Marketing, Colas Limited

A quick email to thank you and your team for the excellent support you gave to our Summer Seminar last week. I think many were surprised at what can be achieved outside of the internal/ Army environment and I have received many comments to the effect. Special thanks must go to Brad and Jess who made the whole event ‘possible’. Many thanks for an excellent event and I look forward to seeing you again in the not-so-distant future.
