It's got wings ...

I'm thrilled to be getting our new stage trailer in October. The difference between this and the old one is that we've now got wings ...
Our new stage trailer is arriving in October and it's got wings to hang advertising or speakers from!

Yes, that's right! Wings. No, it's not designed to turn a festival into a runway and take off; what it does give us is the ability to mount advertising or speakers to the sides of the staging to enhance the experience.
"This is a great idea and something I've been
wanting for a while now!"
The one you can see above is very similar to our new one, and yes, I will be taking lots of pictures when we get it because we're going to need to set it up over the winter to figure out how to quickly get into an event, and set it up before it's needed. We also need to know how to make a quick getaway with it at the end of the day, so a lot of practice is needed once we get it.
However, if you need it for your Christmas Lights switch on this year, do let me know as I'm running some excellent promotional pricing throughout December so do consider our new stage trailer (with wings!) when you're organising the event in your town.
Don't forget that we also have 24 sections of 2m by 1m staging with a variety of leg heights; anything from 400mm, which is the standard height for a band gig, up to 1000mm which isn't standard at all, but is a requirement for some theatre productions.
If our new stage trailer is a bit big for you, or you have an indoor venue, we can instead put up multi-level staging for some productions, and indeed choirs, so that they can all be seen. Also it is so strong that we can put cars on it for vehicle displays. It takes 1 ton per section.
"Would you like to know more?"
If you'd like to find out more about our new stage trailer or need some of our general staging for your indoor event then do give me a call on 01234 241357 or click here to ping me an email and let's see how I can help you.
Until next time ...
More about David Pibworth ...
David is the owner of David Pibworth Productions who provides entertainment for theatre and corporate events. This ties in very well with The Arches Theatre, an outside venue that David owns underneath a disused railway line, equidistant from Bedford, Northampton and Milton Keynes. This was one of the few venues that could operate with social distancing in place during the summer of 2020 and where they ran everything from Shakespeare to Richard Digance through the summer months.
David has been involved in light entertainment for many years, even going back as far as working on a production with Norman Wisdom in London. He has a knack of keeping in touch with everyone he's worked with and would bring such people as Chas and Dave, Kenny Ball and Acker Bilk round to play locally when the chance arose.
His company also represent the stage rights for Ray Galton and Alan Simpson, the writers of Steptoe and Son and Hancock's Half Hour. He has recently negotiated permission with Dick Clement and Ian La Frenais to produce Porridge on stage although this is all hampered by the current situation and the availability of theatres.
Next year, at the Arches Theatre, he will produce Ripping Yarns, written by Michael Palin and Terry Jones. This will be an interesting production as not only does one episode involve playing a football match, but also with the agreement of Michael Palin and the wife of the late Terry Jones, it has been decided that all the profits on this production will go to a dementia charity as Terry Jones died as a result of dementia, as did David's father and uncle.
