The Show must go on!

performanceAn outdoor theatre, or amphitheatre is a perfect addition to any school or college, providing a unique space to host various school performances, as well as providing you with an extra source of income if you rent the area out to local theatre groups or wish to put on concerts or gigs from professional performers.

An outdoor performance space really adds another dimension to a performance; however the great British weather can often spoil the fun with wet weather dampening everyone’s enjoyment. Even if the weather behaves itself and sun makes an appearance, this can also create an uncomfortable experience if audiences have to sit for long periods in the hot sun. The perfect solution to all these problems is to provide a permanent shade and shelter solution such as a canopy.

Amphitheatre with Shade Sails at Carnfunnock Park

If you just want to provide shade for audiences on hot sunny days then colourful shade sails are a great solution, providing up to 96% UV protection and also maintaining a feeling of being in the outdoors. These vibrant shades can also add visual effects to your outdoor theatre to improve the aesthetics. Carnfunnock Country Park, Northern Ireland required such a solution and we worked with their contractor to produce a colourful and eye-catching shade sail array which provided shade cover for the audience whilst also allowing for adequate lighting to provide a pleasant ‘outdoor’ experience.

If you require shelter from rain as well as shade cover a large canopy is the answer, our Hamilton Big span canopy can span up to 11 metres to provide a large covered outdoor area and adding more that one can provide an even larger area. You could also consider having multiple canopies side by side to create a large covered area, our Codale Conic can be installed in this modular fashion to create a good sized covered area and also create a striking architectural addition to your site.
