Filming, recording and locations

ALL requests to film on Diocese of Leeds property should in the first instance be made through and will then be at the discretion of the parish priest. Thank you!

Having a background as a journalist, producer and director in BBC TV and Radio, I am well-placed to advise and assist – and sometimes ‘translate’! – between production teams and contributors to ensure that everyone achieves their desired outcomes.

The use of Leeds Cathedral, and our churches and schools as filming locations for features and programmes of speech and/or music involving our diverse young choirs, our Liturgies, and our clergy is welcomed.  Our churches and other properties are beautiful and accessible resources at the heart of their communities, and evidence of the life of the Universal Church in all its abundance.

Although we do not usually allow either professional productions of dramas or student filming in our sacred spaces, we have made exceptions where the subject-matter actually assists us in our mission, so always feel free to call and discuss possibilities.
