Production Support

How can we help?

Here we can signpost you to our technical information if you are a visiting company or potential hirer, or to Mercury Makes if you need a set, costumes or some props made or available to hire. 

If you have a show you’d like us to programme head to our producing/programming section where you’ll also find updates about our co-productions, associations and collaborations.


Alongside building all of the magnificent sets and large props for our in-house Mercury Productions, our workshop also love building for other people. We have made and refurbished sets for a stream of commercial producers and venues of various sizes. No job is too small and our Head of Construction, Phil Attwater, and Deputy Workshop Manager, Harriet Wheatley, will be delighted to put together a quote for you. Please contact them at 


For Corinna Vincent, our Wardrobe Manager, and Assistant Wardrobe Manager, Chantelle Cox, costumes are their passion. They make over a hundred wigs and costumes for our panto each year, before they even make a start on any of our other shows.

Do you need to hire costumes or have something special made? They will be delighted to help. Please email them on 


Our Company Stage Manager, Rebecca Raggett, and her team excel in making props. If you need something made or want to hire our props (including our fabulous pig puppet for a production of ‘Betty Blue Eyes) see if we can help. Please email 

Got a question? Please contact our Technical Manager Ben Wills and his team on 01206 577006 or email 

Production packs will be available soon.

If you have a show you’d like us to produce, programme or invite us to, then this is the email for you: 

We’re pleased to announce that our Young People’s Consortium, that saw the creation of the award winning production of Noughts and Crosses with Pilot Theatre, will resume in 2022. 


We’re thrilled that from January 2021 we will have a Stage One Regional Producer Placement joining us.

The Mercury previously hosted a Stage One placement in 2015 and Dilek Latif (now our Talent Development Producer) joined the Mercury on a 30 month Sustained Theatre Placement through Tamasha Theatre back in 2017.
