Our facilities

Joe H. Makin Drama Centre

The Joe H.Makin Drama Centre provides an independent building dedicated for our Drama programmes. The Centre has two studios, a props store, an open-air yard, teaching and seminar spaces as well as space for drama workshops. The Centre also houses an 80 seat theatre with a control room. Although our Centre provides a fantastic teaching facility, thanks to our links within the city we also use other theatres around the city, including The Unity, The Everyman and Playhouse, St Georges Hall, The Royal Court and The Lantern Theatre.

TV studio

We have a professionally-equipped HD TV studio, as well as a TV news studio which is suitable for factual and drama production, as well as commercials and music videos. Our studios contain post-production edit suites.

Radio studio

Students can use our fully-equipped, professional radio studio, which has editing and audio booths. External industry partners also use the studio, including Classic FM.


We have four fully-equipped newsrooms, which have Adobe Creative Cloud software.

Media tech

Our School has first-rate media tech, including: IT suits with Adobe Production software, Apple Mac suites with Final Cut Pro X and Avid post production suites.

Green screen

Our school has an industry standard green screen for chroma key compositing. This technique allows the layering of two images or video streams based on colour hues (chroma range). Green screen technology is used heavily in broadcast journalism and film making. Journalism, film making and media students have the opportunity to use this facility during their studies.

Special archives

Liverpool Screen School’s researchers make great use of the Willy Russell Archive and the Everyman and Playhouse Archive, which are housed within the special collections at the Aldham Robarts Library within the special collections.

Redmonds Building

Liverpool Screen School is based within the £37.6 million Redmonds Building, which contains state-of-the-art equipment, as well as social learning spaces, modern lecture halls and seminar rooms.
