Catering for specialist events

A uniquely flexible film set

UWE Bristol’s campuses have been used in films and TV programmes including Skins, CBeebies, Mistresses and Casualty. Architecture is a mix of modern and Grade II listed buildings, offering the opportunity to close sets. There is also a range of flexible internal locations, and our students are on hand if you’re looking for extras.


We have a selection of venues for the perfect wedding day including the UWE Bristol Exhibition and Conference Centre, which is ideal for large scale wedding receptions.
