Working within the beautiful Manchester Opera House, this job tasked us with building a platform across the entire auditorium. This in turn enabled the build of a large girder structure front of house, which then became the set for the World Premier of Bat Out Of Hell, The Musical. We later undertook the same project when the musical transferred to The Coliseum in London.

Why we chose Manchester as the home of one of our two main UK branches
Manchester: one of the UK’s leading cultural hubs. As birthplace to ‘HOME’, Britain’s largest arts venue outside of London and soon to be proud domain of £110m arts space The Factory, Steeldeck are thrilled to have a second office within this great city. Recognised around the world as the birthplace of the industrial revolution, Manchester continues to expertly combine old with new: high-profile regeneration projects alongside independent, left-field and often anti-establishment Manchester offerings.
Working directly for the video hosting service on their Halloween live music special within the Victoria Warehouse in Manchester, Steeldeck provided Vevo with a 1.2m high stage, complete with bespoke infills, a front of house position and rolling risers. A spooktacular piece of work.
Steeldeck are no strangers to the Manchester International Festival and in 2017, we were back up at the Campfield Market venue working alongside local crew. Our brief was to create and supply a split-level stage with access, control position and seating. A great job which is always a pleasure.
