Whether you're planning a large-scale music festival or a local community event, we have the stage hire services that you need to make your Berkshire event a success.
At Outdoor Stages, we offer a wide range of stages, from small, mobile stages to large outdoor stages that can accommodate a full professional band and all their requested equipment. And because we understand that no two events are the same, we offer bespoke stage hire services (in addition to our off-the-shelf packages) that can be tailored to your specific event requirements.
So, what exactly can Outdoor Stages do for your Berkshire event?
Hire a Small or Medium-Sized Stage for Your Berkshire Event
We offer an extensive collection of small, mobile, and medium stages that can all be delivered and set up within a matter of hours.
Whether you need a stage for a local band at a community event or a small stage for a DJ set at a private garden party, we have the perfect stage solution for you. And because we understand that many small and medium events are put together on a carefully-crafted budget, we offer competitive rates on all our stage hire packages.
Our most popular small stage hire option for Berkshire events is undoubtedly our 6m x 4m arc roof stage, which provides the perfect setting for smaller bands, duos, and solo performers. It also has the advantage of fitting into a long-wheel-base van (as opposed to an articulated lorry), which helps to keep costs and access challenges to a minimum.
For a slightly bigger stage that can accommodate a full band (or for events where you need a little more workable stage space), our 7m x 5m or 8m x 6m arc roof stages present ideal solutions. They give you the ability to create a much more imposing stage production, yet they're still manageable in terms of access, setup, and delivery. These medium-sized stages are well suited to various outdoor events, including small music festivals, local community events, and trade shows.
But what if you want something even bigger? Well, it's good news, because we also offer a range of large outdoor stages that are ideal for more significant events, such as music festivals and live outdoor concerts.
Hire a Large Stage for Your Berkshire Event
For outdoor events that require a larger stage, we offer a variety of different options. We have two principal headline festival stages, each with a different design. First is our 11m x 9m mode, which represents the largest of our arc roof systems. It offers an impressive workable stage area of 10m x 8m and delivers a 3500kg roof payload, meaning it can support even the most extravagant stage productions.
Our next, and largest stage, is our 12m x 10m arc dome stage, which can provide the focal point for events as large as music festivals. It's a truly stunning stage, reminiscent of the famous West Holts Stage at Glastonbury. Plus, the large overhang gives added protection to your performers and equipment from the elements.
Both of these stages can be developed and configured to suit your exact event requirements. So, if you need a little more (or a little less) stage space, we can tailor the stages to your needs. We can also provide additional staging (such as "cow shed" equipment storage units and backstage areas) if required.
But, of course, the stage structure is only half the story. The real magic happens when you start to think about how you're going to rig the stage and make it look incredible for your event. And that's where our in-house production equipment and expertise comes in.

Can You Provide Bespoke Stage Hire Services, Or Do You Only Offer Standard Packages?
In short, the answer is yes! We are always happy to provide bespoke stage hire packages to our clients. No two events are the same, and while we are often taken up one of our many available standard off-the-shelf stage hire packages, we understand that sometimes you just need something a little bit different.
Our preset stage hire packages are also completely customisable, so if you like the look of one of our stages but need it to come with a bigger or smaller accompanying PA system, different lighting rig, or anything else, we can easily make the changes you need.
We can also provide customised productions for larger events that require something eye-catching and iconic. Whether you need 6m attached advertising wings for branding purposes or a 20m LED video wall to show live footage of your event, we can make it happen.
It's always best to start by discussing your requirements with one of our expert team members. We can then begin to develop a stage hire package that perfectly suits your event's needs.
How Much Does Stage Hire Cost in Berkshire?
Given that there are so many variables that go into the cost of stage hire, it's difficult to give an accurate estimate for stage hire costs without knowing more about your specific event requirements.
Access challenges on-site, the surface upon which the stage will be built, the size and type of stage you need, how long you need it for, whether you require any additional production services – all of these factors will affect the cost of hiring a stage.
If you're looking for approximate stage hire costs in Berkshire, our 6m x 4m arc roof stage starts at around £850 + VAT per day, whereas our largest festival stages can cost upwards of £8000 + VAT per day. With either, the final cost will depend on the factors mentioned above and the extent of the desired accompanying production package.
Just remember that, with our quotes, everything is included within our flat fee. Many outfits only quote you for the stage hire element, only to add additional costs for things like PA hire, lighting, etc. Not us – we include everything in our stage hire quotes so that you know exactly how much you'll be paying upfront.
To get a more accurate picture of stage hire costs for your Berkshire event, please don't hesitate to get in touch with a member of our team. We would be more than happy to provide you with a free, no-obligation quote based on your specific stage hire requirements.
When Should I Book My Stage Hire in Berkshire?
The answer to this question is always the same; the sooner, the better. So, as soon as you have an event date in mind, it's always best to start thinking about stage hire. While we can sometimes fulfil last-minute stage hire requests, it's not something we recommend.
The earlier you book your stage hire with us, the more helpful we can be in the planning process (including providing necessary Health & Safety documentation), and the more likely it is that we'll be able to provide you with everything you need for your event.
The later you leave it, the more likely it is that you'll have to make compromises on your stage production. During the peak summer season (May – September), many of our stages get booked up as much as a year in advance, so it's always best to plan ahead.
Of course, we understand that sometimes circumstances beyond your control can mean that you need to make a last-minute stage hire booking. If this is the case, please don't hesitate to get in touch, and we'll do everything we can to help.
How Can I Make a Booking for Stage Hire in Berkshire?
Making a booking for stage hire in Berkshire is easy. Simply get in touch with a member of our team and let us know what you need and when you need it.
One of our experienced staff members will then put together a stage hire quote based on your specific requirements. Once you're happy with everything, we'll send over a contract for you to sign. Once that's been taken care of, your booking will be confirmed, and we'll start making the necessary arrangements.
It really is as simple as that. So, if you're ready to make a booking for stage hire in Berkshire, please don't hesitate to get in touch. We look forward to hearing from you soon.
