Business Operating Zone
Unusual is the UK’s most experienced provider of rigging and stage engineering solutions, with the capacity to support concurrent major international projects and smaller regional projects with equal dedication.
Our approach is unique among stage engineering companies in the UK. Using our combined experience of the event industry, theatre staging and rigging and previous capital projects, we design and source the best solutions for each project, whether that is a stage elevator system, flying system, tension wire grid or ‘invisible’ suspensions for a museum exhibit.
Many of our 80 employees have spent their entire lives working in the production side of the theatre and entertainment business. Our specialist teams boast a wide range of disciplines, and all are passionate about what they do. Recent projects include the technical refurbishment of the Dominion Theatre, the revival of Miss Saigon in London’s West End and big scale touring shows like Barnum and Wicked.
Whether for a West End show or a touring production, an installation for a new school theatre, museum or multi-million pound convention centre, our skills and knowledge ensure a high quality project, on time and within budget.
