A Potted History
Stage technical Services - or StS as we're known to our friends - was born in 2011 to four loving parents. The aim from the outset was to provide the best quality technical support to our customers with a team of skilled staff and the best in equipment. We enjoy what we do and pride ourselves on going one step above to make your show or event extra special. For StS, its about having happy customers and a great final product, and this will always be our mantra.

Now operating from our premises in Exeter, we have become a leading name in the South West. Whether it’s staff, equipment or the whole package, you can rely on StS. We care about our work and it’s important to us that everything we do is one step ahead, thoroughly professional and exactly how you imagined it. So, give us a chance to show you what we can do.

What Our Clients Say
  • I have worked with StS for several years and Amy and the team have consistently delivered quality sound and lighting. They meet with me to identify my needs and communicate and stay in touch throughout the project. Consistently cheerful, helpful and fun to work with.
    Joe McNulty, Theatre Learning
  • StS is so amazing... they've helped us out immeasurably in the past and yet again they've helped us to absolutely transform the space we're working in yet again. In this case, Theatre Tropicana in Weston-super-Mare.
    Four of Swords Theatre
  • We were led through the gloom of the house, following the characters from room to room. Clever and moody lighting added to the sinister atmosphere created by the modest cast, and was subtly and effortlessly executed.
    Express & Echo Review, Jekyll & Hyde
  • The reaction to the sound has been uniformly positive and that is the first time I can remember that happening! I realise that it is not the easiest or best equipped venue for you, nor the most generous of budgets, but you certainly came up trumps.
    Andrew Pryce, TOPS Musical Productions
  • StS have been great to work with - reliable, friendly and professional. We had so much good feedback about the lighting from cast and audiences, it completely transformed the look of my show to exactly where I wanted it to be, so thank you.
    Chloe Whittaker, Writers Block Theatre
  • A massive thank you to StS for your time and patience. Everything went well, every pyro, smoke puff and flame behaved without a hitch. We had a fantastic week and the reviews have mentioned the amazing fireworks!
    Dawn Lawton, CYGAMS
