Ealing Studios is across the street from The Red Lion. And the pub has always been frequented by the actors, producers, directors and other staff members who work at the studio.
They nicknamed the pub ‘stage 6’ (Ealing studios had 5 stages at the time), so it was a secret code used to sneak out for a pint.
Now, plans for a brand new 14,000 square foot stage, 10,000 square foot of new workshops and 35,000 square foot of additional offices have just received permission to proceed from Ealing Council.
We welcome this ever growing creative work force. Whatever stage it may be...
