Eastern Angles provides mobile seating for hire. User-friendly and easily demountable, the aluminium-based, upholstered seating can help transform any space into a conference centre, sports auditorium, theatre or festival centre.  

With a row rise of 30cm (1ft) - to provide maximum viewing potential - this very flexible, comfortable and safe system complies with all recent European regulations. A typical build is usually 174 seats. Up to 320 flip-up seats are available for indoor or outdoor use. Rates of hire are very competitive with discounts for arts and community use. On our tours a crew of 6 could assemble 120 seats in less than 2 hours and dismantle the build in under an hour.

What configurations are available and how much room does it need?

Up to 13 rows deep and 30 seats wide (though not at the same time). Minimum no. of rows is 4. With a 30cm rise a person standing at the top of a 10-row set-up will be around 3m off the ground. Seat width is a generous 500mm so a 13-seat row plus aisle (2 seats) will be 7.5m wide. Row depth is 762mm. (10 rows requires 8m). The system is erected in component bays of 3 seats width (1500mm). Aisles can be central or either side of the seating according to spec. A lower rise is available for the first four rows for venues with low ceilings.

To receive specifications and more information, please contact our Production Manager Steve Cooney.


Eastern Angles’ Front of House Pavilion is available to hire. Great for outdoor events, the Pavilion’s dome structure is perfect for housing pre-event refreshments and a place to mingle beforehand.
