In recent years Qdos Event Hire has built a reputation for building bespoke production compounds for numerous TV production companies and broadcasters. It was no surprise that we were asked to return to Newcastle this June and July for the filming of the 20th series of popular reality television show Geordie Shore. This was our second visit to Tyneside having successfully provided the production village for Lime Pictures when series 18 and 19 were filmed in late 2018.
The production village is built on the site in Wallsend where the house the cast live in is situated and much of the filming for the series takes place. It includes a spacious open plan office for the production and editorial teams that is created using five of our CTX modular bays. Two 32’ x 8’ cabins are linked together to make a large kitchen and crew area, with additional open plan cabins supplied for use as a viewing gallery, an area for sound and other equipment and an open plan office with air conditioning.
In addition, we provide toilets for the village, including waste management, and a storage container.
Geordie Shore is a British reality television series broadcast on MTV and based in Newcastle upon Tyne, England. The show follows the daily lives of 8-12 housemates, depending on the series, as they live together for a number of weeks.
Series 20 has just completed filming and will be broadcast on MTV later this year with several previous housemates expected to make a return including Chloe Ferry and Gary Beadle.
