3 Mills 2023 round-up

2023 has been our year to focus on upgrading, adapting, and learning to make our studio better than ever!

While it was a challenging time for film and television, we’ve been lucky to still welcome some fantastic productions to our site. Join us in looking back at an interesting year and looking forward to the next. 

The Gin Still was revamped into three floors of modern creative offices. The Screening Room was refurbished with care to offer the magic of old-school cinema with all the latest technology. We refurbished our Cafe area, now a bustling creative hub with the help of our new hospitality partner, Jones & Sons, who provide a variety of delicious, fresh food every day.





While many of the projects this year are still under wraps, here are some of the exciting releases we can talk about that filmed at 3 Mills this year!

Series 3 of black comedy period drama The Great wrapped. It released mid-year to rave reviews.
Superhero comedy Extraordinary series 2 completed filming, while series 1 was just released on Disney +.
It was a festive summer  when Your Christmas or Mine 2 filmed. It’s just been released on Amazon Prime!
You’ll catch a familiar background to the idents for Channel 4 films, which began airing in October.


There have been so many exciting rehearsals this year, here are a few that managed to capture some lovely photos of the spaces in action!

Derren Brown’s Unbelievable, a jaw-dropping magic show that recently performed at the Royal Variety.
The English National Opera returned to rehearse a number of shows this year, including Iolanthe pictured above.
Wicked returned to 3 Mills to greenify a stage, and have since taken flight around the UK and Ireland on tour!
Stranger Things: The First Shadow on stage was born! The exciting, brand new stage show is now at the Pheonix Theatre.


This year we welcomed the Mayor of London on a tour around the site, we joined a new TV Access Project (TAP) training programme to focus on improving accessibility, and we planted our new wildflower garden for the site.

A big thanks for those of you who came to join us for an evening on the sunny cobbles at our 3 Mills Summer Party!
