Studios 42 is in the Business of Providing
Locations, Property and all Facilities
for the Film, Video and Photography Industries.

Our clients to date include world-renowned actors, singers, the BBC, Playboy, and increasingly, advertising companies and individuals.

We have used the two Country Houses (Barham Court, Kent and Pendell House, Surrey) for films, celebrations, concerts and built up a client list that is keen to purpose-built 21st Century locations. This demand is growing with film and photographic facilities extending to amateur and professional film-makers, corporate advertising etc.

Having sold the listed Grade I, 17th Century Country House that was used as our main set (belonging to our CEO), we are now proceeding to purchase two, purpose built (or re-built) state of the art Studios 42.

John Hesketh has retained ownership of 36 acres of the Pendell Estate and is negotiating planning permission for film studios and other development.

Our Mission

Studios 42 is a response to increasing and changing demand. That demand is for 21st Century, cutting edge studios for film/video and photography as well as associated demands for C.V.s furniture, props, costume, make-up health and beauty.

Studios 42 differs from other studios - offering accommodation, make-up experts, hair stylists, stunt men, crowds and all the varied requirements of film producers: See ‘A Complete Studios Campus’.


Studios 42 is targeted to complete two Studios 42 in England in 2019/20, with anticipated profits in 2021. Further Studios 42 are targeted in Europe and the US thereafter.
We are currently seeking £1 million from our share offer which is targeted for those in the film/video/photography industries as well as well-connected individuals and companies. Investment will be secured on the properties and business.
The Directors and Management will be investing their money, time and extensive expertise.
