Stage is set for festival’s return

A short time ago, we reported on the welcome return of the Darwen Jazz and Blues Festival. This exciting event began today, runs till August 12th and looks set to be a wonderfully vibrant time, bringing together a host of musicians and singers to perform a wide variety of musical styles. This is the festival’s third birthday; performers and audience alike are buzzing with excitement and creativity. Events are taking place across the town centre but the hub of the action is at Darwen Aldridge Community Academy.

The Academy concert hall is a beautiful venue with room for up to a thousand guests. Staging such an event can be a complex process; multi-level staging systems are required and must be suitable for a range of applications. As many performers and technical staff will be using the stage, utilising various instruments and technical equipment, it must be strong and hard-wearing whilst being safe and aesthetically pleasing.

Unistage are proud to have supplied staging to this year’s festival. Our secure, professional modular staging systems were the natural choice for such an event and our team were on hand at every step of the design and installation process. From designing and manufacturing all of our products on-site to our expert post-installation advice and support, Unistage have an impeccable record of customer service.

Why not head down to the festival this weekend? With good weather forecast, food and real ale available all day and one ticket allowing access to all of that day’s events, the Darwen Jazz and Blues festival is an ideal way to relax and enjoy a little culture. You will also be able to see our stage design at first hand and experience the difference a well planned, professionally designed and installed stage system can make to any performance or presentation.
