Our temporary structures can include everything you’d find in a permanent theatre, cinema or concert venue, from front of house hospitality space, bars and restaurants, stage and back of house areas to toilets, cloakroom facilities, seating and power.

Our dedicated temporary event manager will offer expert advice and deliver a tailor-made plan to suit your specific requirements. So, whatever you need, we have the structures, people, products and services to allow you to provide the full, accessible, audience experience.

Our flexible, modular temporary seating is quick to install and remove and is available in standard or bespoke configurations that offer the ideal seating solution. 

The self-tipping seats are interchangeable for use on our tiered grandstand or floor track; this versatility means they can be customised for any topography, and fit around any obstacles on site. They're designed to Olympic standards so are wider and more comfortable than other temporary seats on the market. 

Our range of options include seating suitable for both indoor or outside venues, and, with locations across the UK, we can deliver whatever you need, wherever you need it.

If you’re looking for a ‘structure within a structure’ solution, we can provide that too, offering all the individual hospitality and back of house spaces that you require, while our range of interior options and ancillary products gives you even more flexibility.

No matter what your music or theatrical event needs to look like, you can trust us to deliver an option that works for you – without any drama!

"GL events has been incredible. Their hands on approach and continued support, plus the fact that they understand theater - what we do, what we're trying to achieve and what Trafalgar Group are all about - made the project run much more smoothly than if someone else had been used for the project."
