Schools & Colleges

Since its formation in 1999, Upstage has developed a large customer base within the schools and education sector. Jobs have ranged from simply replacing the lamp in a lantern for a local school in the Midlands, to providing a stage and technical support for a school production in Leeds, to supplying a new sound system to a school in Africa.

Equipment purchase

If you are thinking of purchasing any technical equipment, e.g. lighting and sound, or replacing the drapes and tracks in your hall or studio, we can help. Please ring for advice or follow the links below for more information.

Drama Studio Installations

Upstage have also been responsible for many refurbishments of Drama Studios, Halls and School Theatres. For many of these, we were able to be involved from the early stage of planning, contributing to discussions about layout, acoustics and lighting positions. Working with the architects, specifiers and builders, as well as the end-user, Upstage will supply drapes and tracking systems, internally wired lighting bars, dimmer and lighting control systems, sound and lighting equipment.

Hires and Consumables

Many schools hire our stages for their productions, including those who already own Q-Build and wish to expand for a particular production.

We also hire lighting and sound equipment, and can supply replacement lamps, lighting gel, gobos, smoke machines, and other effects.
