Newmarket Racecourse

A Serious Stages Case Studies

Project Info:

  • Dates: 1 June-31 August 2017
  • Duration: 3 months
  • Location: Newmarket

To make best use of the unique space within the racecourse, we designed a stage which could be slotted in between the two permanent grandstands, in order to maximise space and ensure great views for everyone on the course.

The new Triton Roof stage has branded front facia sheeting and branded angled back gable sheets to enable it to blend into the grandstand. As the design of the grandstands doesn’t allow for side sheds, the stage features an increased depth for monitor desks and storage areas, as well as an off-stage DJ booth and an under-stage access route, to enable artists to easily access the stage deck.

We also supplied a 27m wide x 4.8m deep decking platform which housed the front-of-house structure, a 12m VIP area and a 7.2m accessible viewing platform.
