A guide to stage hire

When hiring a stage, the top questions you need to ask and consider are:

  • How big is the stage?
  • How high is the stage?
  • Does the stage have and/or need a wet weather cover?
  • What finish is the stage? i.e. Timber, vinyl or carpet etc, depending on the occasion

Aluminium frames are recommended as they are the most sturdy and reliable, and also are able to carry heavier loads than typical steel frames.

Another consideration is to have a clear measurement of the size and floor space the stage will occupy. Fortunately with Party Hire Group you can hire your stage by per square metre, therefore you’re only paying for what you require.

For outdoor events, such as at a sporting field, road and traffic area, public parks etc, you’ll need to ensure that the area where the stage will be assembled is even and flat. Our team at Party Hire Group can help advise on this based on your requirements.

Finally, once you have covered the size and surface area logistics, you should confirm additional equipment hire including audio, lighting and event furniture hire. You can read our complete guide to audio hire here and our range of lighting hire here.
