Film Location Hire

Fairfield can be hired for film and TV location work. This applies to our spaces front of house, backstage and our external areas. Being a live entertainment venue we are well equipped for the recording of concerts, both for film and audio. We have a very good facility for live TV coverage and in the past we have hosted live sports such as SKY snooker, wrestling, boxing and table tennis. We are also happy to quote for car parking/catering parking/catering services and for acting as a location/logistics/office base for crews shooting elsewhere in Croydon.
