Assisted by grants from the National Lottery and the Foundation for Sport and the Arts, Ludlow Choral Society purchased a large quantity of modular steel and ply staging from Stage Systems. This allows us to erect flat or tiered seating for up to 120 singers in the crossing of the church.
Many different organisations have hired the staging from the Choral Society and it has been used for audiences at schools events, for festival concerts and presentations, choir and orchestral society concerts, church services and charity fund raising. Because of its modular design it can be used very flexibly and is equally suitable for creating small raised areas and for larger, more complex stages.
Hire charges can range from under £100 to £500 plus depending on the size and complexity of the staging. Discounts are available to bona fide charities and good causes. Additionally, up to 140 chairs can be hired for use with or without the staging and, where there is suitable access, transportation can be arranged to any reasonable distance from Ludlow. The Society’s own members will transport, erect and dismantle the staging as part of the service.
Anyone interested in hiring staging should contact the Stage Manager
