Stafford Shakespeare Theatre

Stafford Shakespeare Theatre

We set the stage for the Stafford Festival Shakespeare - a prestigious Open Air event, which has become established as one the region’s Summer highlights. The event is the centrepiece of the borough’s popular family orientated Stafford Festival.

We worked with the theatre company to design the stability supports for the main stage and to supervise its construction.  The site for the outdoor stage was within the ground of Stafford Castle, a relatively open area which is accessible to the general public.  This meant that wind loadings needed to be taken into account to ensure that the staging was safe.  The design was checked and approved by the council and constructed to meet the schedule of the theatre company.  The stage was set for the 2 week festival was proved to be a great success.
