Northern Town is a young production company.  We aim to be as inventive, bold and original as possible.

We have made programmes for Bloomberg TV,  BBC World News and BBC4 a wide range of short form content for clients and brands – including the British Museum, National Gallery, National Portrait Gallery, the Art Fund, the Design Museum, Art UK, The Pool, Turkish Airlines and Hyundai. We’ve made content for over 100 museums and galleries across the UK, from the Jerwood Gallery in Hastings and Turner in Margate to the Mac in Belfast, the Whitworth in Manchester and Hepworth in Wakefield.

We’re always hungry for new ideas and partnerships. Do get in touch with us – the bigger and more fun the idea the better.
