We have created drawings from surveys of over 50 venues, including West End, large and small provincial theatres...and even a Broadway theatre.
We also now allow venues to buy the drawing(s) of their venues for their own use - please contact us direct to discuss.

set & lighting (LX) plan drawing
Our plan drawing service offers the designer a flexible means of producing plans. We are pleased to take hand drawn plans, a few scratchings on a piece of paper or sets of drawings and turn them into a full plan. And, we always aim to customize plans to the format the particular designer is used to. If the designer prefers to draw their own plan we would be equally pleased to handle the plotting and distributing.
Our most popular service is tour planning. Once a CAD drawing of the set has been made, it is a simple and quick operation to insert it into one or more of our venue drawings to see if it fits. If required, we can continue by making necessary changes to suit the theatre - adjusting the set; aligning flying pieces with the fly bars; adding the lighting; etc. The designer/production manager will be sent copies of the drawing in PDF format to check until they are happy.
Costs are dependant on how much time is needed editing, but we only charge for time used and therefore can be a very cost effective way of planning a tour.
