The Depot film studio will be open to the public for the first time.

To mark the start of the long-awaited project to transform the iconic Littlewoods building into a film studio, the neighbouring Depot studio site is set to open to the public for the first time this weekend.

The transformation is part of Liverpool’s bid to become the ‘Hollywood of the North’ and plans to convert the historic site into a major TV and film complex have been revealed by developers, Capital & Centric.
