Need a stage?

In this issue of Products and Services Review, we are pleased to feature The Stage Bus as our Mobile Staging Company of the Month.

TheStageBusEstablished in 2006 by Director Andrew Teverson, The Stage Bus was created with the objective of providing efficient, sustainable mobile stages to events. Since 2006, the company has received steady growth and now provides a range of stages that are fast-deploy meaning they can be set up in only one hour.

We spoke to Ella Gardiner, Sales & Marketing
Co-ordinator who explained some of the benefits to the services that they provide. “We differ from our competitors firstly in terms of the way we design our stages – they are designed to be efficient and we achieve this by integrating our AV equipment into the stages so that clients don’t need to hire PA/lighting separately. Furthermore, our stages don’t require any building on-site, we drive on in one vehicle and we take around an hour to set up and the same to pack away. Traditional stages can take days to rig, thus pushing costs up further. Our stages also run on solar batteries so we don’t need any dirty generators, they are solar-powered so incredibly good for the environment.”

TheStageBusBased in Birmingham, UK, The Stage Bus works nationwide and with events now being given the green light to go ahead again post COVID-19, the company is planning to sell the Stage Box concept to overseas clients too. “We have been told by the overseas visitors we meet at trade shows that this concept is appealing to them due to the design (which makes it simpler to ship than a traditional stage) and the technology that we have developed, allowing a great stage experience using solar power. Things went from a standstill to moving at 100mph when events were allowed to run at full capacity again after the Pandemic and we are incredibly grateful for the high level of interest in our concept. We are consistently working to improve our services year on year and in light of this we have built the fourth Stage Box to meet the demand we saw in 2022 (we had to turn some work away due to not having stage capacity) and recruiting more freelance sound engineers. We have also recently acquired larger premises on the same site we’ve been operating from since we began,” added Ella.

“We have completed the build of our fourth Stage Box unit this year which is built into a shipping container and has a PA that can cover up to 8,000 people. It is designed for long-term hires in mind and can be fully secured overnight with the push of a button without the need for security personnel. It also has a 90” screen in the rear wall so is great for branding – in fact, the entire unit can be brand-wrapped! It also has height-adjustable hydraulic legs. We have three of these units now as the concept has been very well-received and we have one installed on a semi-permanent basis in Stevenage as part of their Event Island space.”

Each stage comes at an economical price adding a showstoppiTheStageBusng feature to any outdoor event. From town councils to private festivals and cooperate clients, The Stage Box caters to a large variety of customers. Its popularity is increasing rapidly which is evident in the fact that the company has taken on more permanent staff members in the last 12 months than it had since it launched.
