Scenery Construction and Pantomime set Hire

House and Garden at The Watermill, Bagnor, Berkshire


On Sunday 21st May we put the set for House and Garden designed by Neil Irish into the Watermill Theatre near Newbury. This is an Alan Ayckbourn play that is staged both in the auditorium and also in the beautiful gardens of the theatre. Luckily the weather was lovely and sunny.

These images were taken at the end of the day and were of the “House” part of the set. We look forward to seeing the production shots with the set dressed and lit properly, and also some shots of the “Garden” elements which I didn’t get pictures of.

The fit-up went without a hitch and everyone was happy with our efforts. Thank you to Milly Dagnell and Luke Norton for their efforts during the build and also on the fit-up.
