Still striving to give researchers what they need & want: world-class viewing facilities in central Manchester.

As researchers ourselves, we believe that the ambience and facilities of the viewing facility you choose can make a huge difference to what you get out of your research – a belief that has been confirmed by the feedback of those we have worked with so far.

Studio Gallery

We have three research studios, all of which feature stylish, comfortable furniture, air-conditioning and all the latest AV Kit including pan tilt zoom cameras, wifi and recording to DVD and MP3 audio.

I sent an email to my team asking whether they’d recommend viewing facilities in Manchester, and all I heard back was The Talking Shop. Word of mouth about you is certainly good.
