Creative & Digital

Bristol & Bath is an amazingly creative place.  With 14 BAFTAS and six Oscars going to companies in the region, it is a key centre for TV, film and animation not to mention associated broadcast technology and support services.  The figures back up this assertion too, with the region’s creatives estimated to be 50% more productive than the UK average, and since 1999, we have seen a 106% increase in productivity in creative and digital industries across Bristol & Bath – no wonder we were recognised by TechCityUK as the largest digital cluster in the UK outside of London (TechNation 2014).

The BBC set up home here over 80 years ago, and 35% of the world’s natural history programming is created here.  We are also a global centre for animation, helped in no small part by Oscar winners Aardman Studios of ‘Wallace & Gromit’ fame being based here since 1976.  IMDb also calls Bristol & Bath home as does the world’s largest YouTube gaming channel, Yogscast.  Add it all up here and we create digital content that reaches over 500 million views each month.
