About Us

Scenery Solutions specialise in the hire of theatrical scenery, props and backcloths to both professional and amateur theatre. We also hire to schools, corporate events, film and TV productions.

We stock over 100 full stage sets for musicals, plays and operettas, both classic and modern, along with set, props and backcloths to fulfil any pantomime.

With over 1,500 full and cut backcloths, tabs and gauzes in stock, their suitability ranging from popular musicals and pantomimes to Gilbert and Sullivan, you're guaranteed to find the right backcloth for your production. We stock over 7,500 items of stage props and furniture and will also deliver and collect, taking the worry out of hiring.

If you need something more specific than our standard items, our bespoke backcloth paint service and bespoke set design and build service allows our experts to assist you in designing and building the set that suits your needs and vision.

Our History

After many years of working as part of a stage crew and building scenery for amateur theatre across the south, Alick Leech formed Scenery Solutions in 2013. With help from his friends in the amateur theatre world, the business soon took off and in March 2014 became a limited company and moved into our first industrial unit.

Having initially concentrated on building scenery for newly released modern musicals, we knew to grow and survive we would need to increase our hire stock at a faster rate than we were able to build. November 2014 saw us incorporate the sets and backcloths from Clifford and Brown in Nuneaton into our stock, gaining 45 years of experience but maintaining the ability to create fresh and modern scenery to give the combined business a new lease of life.

With Scenery Solutions continuing to thrive, the business expanded further by incorporating backcloths from Scenechange Studios on the Isle of Wight, stage props and furniture from Howorth Wrightson (HWL) in Manchester and most recently following the sad closure of our friends at Stage a Show (formerly Scenery Hire) in Wales we took on a significant amount of their scenery and props to continue to make these great sets available for hire across the UK.

Scenery Solutions continue to pride ourselves in the quality of our scenery, props and backcloths, and our friendly and helpful approach to customers. We are proud to supply professional and amateur theatre and pantomime across the UK, along with schools, TV and film studios. We look forward to working with you on your shows.
