The Coronavirus period, spurred on a surge of interest in outdoor theatre, businesses that had never considered the outdoors as a viable option, started to eye up alternative spaces. Many of these companies haven’t turned back. Pop Up Power Supplies can provide outdoor power units for all performance settings.
Outdoor theatre dates back as far as the 10th century. Performances appeared outside churches, later in the 14th century non religious plays were performed by the Craft Guild. The love of outdoor theatre is on the rise once again, it allows for an unexpected, quirky performance, perhaps in an unusual or dramatic setting. The unpredictable nature of being outside always adds to the performance, weather and animals can also be an unexpected addition! Outdoor theatre allows the possible repurpose of a venue, providing a new income stream for both landowners and theatre companies.
Not only does the UK’s theatre industry play a key economic and social role but the performing arts make a powerful contribution to our country. Theatre is a sector of the creative industries which is worth £101.5 billion and is growing at nearly twice the rate of the UK economy. Some already successful open theatres include, Shakespeare’s Globe, London. Regents Park, Minack theatre, Woburn Estate, Bedfordshire and Holkham Hall in Norfolk.
Pop Up Power Supplies have a range of retractable service units that provide electricity for outdoor performance venues such as farmland, historic sites, beaches, forests and parks. There are three main units in the range – pop up units, power bollards and in-ground, all of which provide a range of outdoor power. Each unit is available with a range of configurations, as well as bespoke in-ground power units or pop up units with recessed tops that can accommodate different forms of surface material such as grass.
