Creative Quarter in the heart of Nottingham's 'bold and ambitious’ bid for Channel 4 national HQ and regional hubs

Mon 14th May 2018

City leaders believe that attracting the national broadcaster to the city would have a transformational effect on the creative economy and offer life changing opportunities for the city’s under 25s and richly multicultural population.

“Nottingham would be the perfect fit for Channel 4, it shares the same sense of rebellion and radical ideas that have always driven and shaped our city. And having Channel 4 here would undoubtedly be a feather in the cap for Nottingham. We have a wealth of talent and creativity in the city which Channel 4 could tap into, and I have no doubt they would thrive here.”

“Channel 4 being in Nottingham would enormously benefit both the city and the company, drawing on and strengthening the already fertile environment of creative industries here and inspiring many more. It would be a bold and inspired choice consistent with the ethos of the channel.”

“Nottingham is already home to the renowned Television Workshop, screenwriters Shane Meadows and William Ivory, award-winning digital production companies, the Playhouse, Dance4, Lakeside Arts and UNESCO City of Literature, all of whom are committed to great excellence. Coupled with our own talent pipeline through the department of Culture, Film and Media, ground-breaking Mixed Reality Lab and multi-award-winning University of Nottingham student run Nottingham New Theatre this city offers a richly creative environment with an edge which would be the perfect partner for Channel 4.”
