Liquid Soap. The RTS award winning TV comedy series written, produced and directed by students at Bath Spa University. Set entirely in the toilets of the café at ‘First Central University’, Liquid Soap reveals the hilarious world of gripping micro-dramas that are played out daily in this intimate location. Episode One, ‘Fumbling In The Ruck’, kicks the series off in typical no holds barred style - one of the First Central University rugby team seems to be having a crisis of sexuality but the question is, which one?
It’s Marion & Geoff meets Shameless; The Office meets Skins; Spinal Tap meets the The Smoking Room.

This Bath-based charity initiative is a unique community arts project fronted by high profile celebrities, such as Sienna Miller and the Duchess of York, and is open to anyone who wants to pledge their support to help raise money to build eco-sanitation toilets and provide clean drinking water for people in India.
Liquid Soap: The Artswork Media webcasting project, led by Eastenders Producer/Director Chris Jury and Touch Films Producer Nic Jeune, aims to provide an ongoing professional production environment for all Bath Spa students but especially our Broadcast Media students, Performing Arts, Design and Screenwriting.
