Stage Hire For Your Christmas Event
The foundation of the show ...
POSTED BY DAVID PIBWORTH ON 14/11/2017 @ 8:00AM
With Christmas approaching, many of you are organising social events for family, work or the community. We have a couple of types of staging available for hire to give your event a real focus ...
If you're interested in stage hire for your Christmas event then do get in touch.
There is the large mobile stage which we pull with a Ford Ranger and takes about an hour to set up, and there is the smaller portable staging which curiously takes a bit longer as it has to be fitted and locked together.
"The small staging is very adaptable."
The set up in the photo above is to extend an existing stage for a production in Turvey this week. It can also be used for catwalks, bands, or just a couple of sections for people to speak from.
It also comes with different height legs so in the photo it is 400mm in height which is the standard. It can be lower or higher, and of course, we do multi-height platforms for various theatre shows. It is also used for car shows as each section can take 1 ton of weight.
"We can also provide disabled access to get onto the stage, so most eventualities covered."
The bigger mobile stage has just been refurbished and is available for Christmas Light switch-ons and the like, and can take at least a 20-piece band. We've had all sorts of acts on that one from Chas and Dave to the Dagenham Girl Pipers.
We've had it for a long time. Our first advert, many years ago, was "We Nip In And Out like Ronnie Biggs" so that dates it, but as I said, we have had it refurbished and it's as good as new.
"Would you like some staging for your Christmas event?"
You need only contact us on 01234 241357 or click here to ping me an email and we will sort you out with minimum fuss and a cheery smile.

Until next time ...
