Stage Lighting Installation for The Met in Bury
Bury Met Theatre Stage Lighting

PG Stage recently carried out some improvements to the stage lighting at Bury Met Theatre. The brief was to replace the lighting grid over the stage and add some new lighting barrels to the front of house area.

The existing support structure is replaced with bespoke manufactured internally wired lighting barrels along with plain alloy tubes to form a rigid grid. A total of 110 lighting circuits along with a DMX network have been wired back to the control area where two Phillips wallrack and a special Wieland patch bay are fitted. This set up will allow all socket outlets to be either dimmed for production lighting or non-dimmed to support house lighting, moving heads and the like.

Following the support grid installation PG Stage re installed the theatres other equipment including tracks and drapes and masking legs to their original position ensuring the theatre could carry on as previous.

The installation was carried out in such a way as to accommodate the theatres summer programme with two fortnight blocks at each end of the season with as little interruption to the day to day working of the venue as much as possible.


“From the initial site survey right through to the installation, PG stage were helpful, professional and efficient. The installation was carried out at a time that suited us and all of the work was done to an excellent standard and to schedule. The system is now being used on a daily basis for Concerts and theatre events. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend PG Stage installations.”
