Contact Production Hire

All the scenery and costumes featured in our productions are created or sourced by the talented staff at our Production Studios in Glasgow. These highly skilled artisans also work on a wide variety of external projects, giving each one the same attention to detail and high level of care.

The teams in our Scenic Workshops build and finish scenery to an excellent standard, using a variety of methods and materials. In recent years, our carpenters, metal workers and painters have worked on the National Theatre of Scotland’s Peter Pan, Scottish Ballet’s Alice, the Royal Opera House’s Clemency, Peter Mullan’s award-winning film Neds and Film 4’s The Eagle.
