The Farm

The Farm


Inspired media project to empower the Greenford and wider Ealing community, by transforming a derelict site into a media and education centre of global standing.

Ealing Idea stage

This project is preparing for fundraising. Click Like to show your support, or Follow for updates on this project's journey.

See attached documents. In short, we are creating state-of-the art studios with exceptionally creative features in the old farm buildings at 29 Old Field Lane South Ravenor Farm. This will create education, employment and media opportunities for the local community, while producing output in terms of current affairs, the arts the culture and sport - some of which will be broadcast live from the premises.

What we'll deliver:

  • Educational & Research
  • Broadcast Facilities
  • Community Event Space

Why it's a great idea:

Employment & training in all aspects of Broadcasting & streaming, with guaranteed work placement in our facilities overseas, Ireland, Istanbul and Spain or with our associates here in the UK. Extensive Community Studio Studio for community events, arts, cultural, events etc. A Community online TV channel purely for the community within the Borough

Steps to get it done:

  • We have building, electrical, air conditioning, network persons all on site since last week with work already completed

The project is modular and involves several other opportunities which as a result of COVID have been delayed or put back until next year. These include setting up a disaster recovery for broadcasters abroad, using IP technology to edit/broadcast football leagues from across the globe from the Greenford facility. We are constantly looking at new and innovative opportunities.
