Spring is here and we're heading towards the busy time for my stage hire business. If you're having an event or a local festival, the staging I offer will be perfect, whatever your requirements ...
Now is the time to think about stage hire for your event or festival.

I have two different styles of staging you can hire. One is the 7.5m by 6m mobile stage which comes on a trailer and we deliver it to site, set it up then take it away at the end of the day. The other is our collection of 2m by 1m sections that can be configured to any size you want, and we can even alter the height for you too.
"We have disabled ramps, safety rails, steps and a black valance available too."
One thing we are hiring the portable staging out for more and more is for multi-level work for choirs, as we have a selection of leg heights ranging from 200mm (very low) through 400mm (usual height for bands). We can go to 600mm and up to 1000mm which is pretty high and only really used for theatre work where bedrooms are required on a multi-level stage. It was used for the stage production of Fawlty Towers for the bedroom scenes.
We are pretty quick at putting the staging up, and I've been trying to think of a tag line for it as I always rather liked the line they had for the Mini car many years ago which was 'Nips in and out like Ronnie Biggs'.
For those youngsters who have not a clue who he was, he was one of the train robbers and he had a habit of escaping and keeping one step ahead of the law. The establishment got all cross about glamorising a thief, but ... well, it sold Mini's.
"So I'm still scratching my head but I expect I'll come up with something."
Anyway, there you have it. The stages are available for hire and you are welcome to come and have a look at them at our storage so I can show you what we can do and here's the website with everything you need to know, including pricing.
Until next time ...
