The Wiener Library's premises in Russell Square, WC1 are available for filming upon request. However, as a working Library, our service to our readers and the care of our unique collections must take priority. This means that times are restricted and that we may not be able to accommodate all filming requests. The request for filming includes smartphone/laptop recordings for Facebook Live and other social media channels, as well as more professional recording equipment for use on television or films. 

Please note that where an on-screen credit cannot be guaranteed, filming charges will apply.

If you would like a tour of the building, or would like to discuss a filming request, please email Barbara Warnock on Please note that filming requests require advance notice and in the majority of cases will not be accommodated on the same day as the request.
