We also have a washing machine and mangle used from ALADDIN in the set pack available.
The set was used only once this year.
They create two tri trucks showing
- Castle
- Dwarfs Cottage
- Forest Barn Wedding.
Then there are two infills.
One double sided castle/forest barn other side and the dwarfs cottage.
We then hired clothes to make up the other front clothe scenes.
We don’t have a photo of the finale as we didn’t use it in the end because of the order of our show… Its a ‘log cabin’ in the forest with glittered white tress in the background.
As they are built fairly new- just before Christmas, they are also in good condition to re-paint over the canvas should you want to in future years.
We are open to offers starting from £900 for the whole thing?

We need to borrow your SOFA!!
Well, hopefully. If you have a small, two seater ‘ Chesterfield' type sofa and are willing to loan it to us for a couple of weeks for our production of Accolade, then we'd love to hear from you.
It doesn't have to be leather but a bit masculine as it's for a men's study.

Enormous Fish

We have just finished a run of a new show 'The Magic Toyshop' in Buckinghamshire, in which we had this amazing Big Fish feature in the show. It is about 15 feet long and several people can sit inside as it's being pushed along on a truck from behind. The jaw moves (as the fish spoke) and the tail can be pushed from side to side as well. For ease of storage the head and the tail can also detached. Here's a photo of it onstage. It is very sturdy and well built - the fish is actually built onto the truck.

I have a number of photos of it during construction and also finished together with an info sheet giving measurements etc. Here are the links (please note that when the fish was on stage the rounded part was cut away as above, so may look slightly different in the construction photos).

finished fish photos -

Info re sizes etc -

Do click on the links to have a view at the photos to give you an idea of how it looks. Obviously it could be repainted, or the exposed ribs covered over if you wanted more of a 'solid' fish design. Hope to hear from you soon - any questions please do ask,

Price £350 ono - collection from Chesham, Buckinghamshire asap

Please note, this is no longer in working order.
This radio belonged to my Parents, so I was hoping if I was to give it to a local drama group, I may be able to come along and see a play and see it being used as a prop. I do not want to just give it away to just anyone.

Rotating Bookcase/Bar for The Game’s Afoot or Holmes for the Holidays
Click on the photo to see the video showing how the bar operates.
Lauder Amateur Dramatic Society did this play in 2015. We built a rotating bookcase/bar as part of the set and, as we are unlikely to use this again, offer it for rent or sale.

Our set is constructed from 8’x4’ stud partition flat modules which bolt together. The revolving bar takes up two modules , i.e. is 8’ wide by 8’ high and consists of a 6’ wide bar/bookcase supported and framed by 2 1’ wide side frames.

The bar section consists of a slightly larger than semi-circular turntable running on heavy duty castors on a plywood baseboard (think of a lazy susan. This has a steel pivot pole fixed to the top and bottom of the surrounding frame. The ‘bookcase’ is fixed to one side of the turntable - back to stage front (it is in fact a pair of bookcases with the backs papered with bookcase wallpaper). The real bookcase side forms the interior of the bar which is shelved and has mirrors and optics. There is an art deco style metal and ply semi-circular screen (to hide Daria’s body) and the bar platform can accommodate 2 bar stools (not supplied). The platform can support 250Kg+ - ample for three adults. We used two stage hands to turn the bar (need to move quickly) and we used a black curtain behind to minimise visibility. Depending on how this fits with the rest of your set, assembly will take about 1-2 hours for the bar.

Cost: To buy outright £450.00
To hire £250

I would like to bring your attention our new range of Real Wax LED RECHARGEABLE candles which are being used where real candles are either impractical or inconvenient.

They can be used in Lanterns and for decor where ordinary candles would make a mess and be a fire hazard. As they are rechargeable they can be used over and over again. There is no smell and with the candle flickering effect they look just like real candles.
These LED Pillar Candles are 15cm, 12cm and 9 cm tall and 5 cm wide. Most other REAL WAX LED candles require replacement batteries and therefore are less convenient as well as more expensive in the long run. Our rechargeable candles last 8 - 10 hours, then you just plug them into the base provided and recharge overnight or the next morning. You can use them outside as they will not blow out. They are very health and safety orientated.

We would like to offer you a special introductory price of only £29.00 delivered free.
We also have Rechargeable set of 12 tealights:
These replace real tealights which tend not to last a full service. Our tea lights last 8 - 10 hours, are rechargeable, come with non breakable frosted flutes. They will not blow out if used outside. The bulb flickers like a real candle so when it is concealed in the flutes, they will give the effect of a real tea light but for much longer!
These are £34.99 per set delivered free.

I accept credit cards or can invoice you for BACS payment. Delivery is free and quick. I sincerely hope to hear from you.

kind regards
