Any available space can be transformed, through the addition of spectator seating, to become a theatre, forum, viewing area or arena. Whenever you want to offer an incredible spectator experience, GL events UK’s range of premium quality tiered grandstand and flat-floor seating is the ideal addition to your event.

We know that comfortable, adaptable seating is key to live commercial, social and sporting occasions. From major sporting tournaments to air shows, festivals, open-air theatre, and all kinds of indoor spectator events; we’re right at home with your requirement – whatever your sector, wherever you’re planning to install your seating, and whatever your challenges.

Our custom-manufactured modular seating is available in standard and bespoke configurations that allow GL events to plan, install and dismantle your ideal event seating solution both safely and quickly. From conception to completion, your event benefits from the combined skill and experience of our in-house designers, structural engineers, project managers and coordinators, who specialise in stadium construction as well as temporary event seating.

Prioritise customer satisfaction with premium event seating

Comfortable, quiet and generously-proportioned seating, along with the best possible views, are crucial to the enjoyment and experience of your guests. That’s why all og GL events UK’s seating products are manufactured to Olympic-standard specifications; meaning a significantly deeper and wider seat profile for your customers.

Our exclusive seating sub-structures allow greater than average elevation options, meaning undisturbed lines of sight and taller grandstands are possible. To eliminate disturbance and inconvenience, our tiered event seating includes a noise-reducing floor system, allowing guests to immerse themselves in the action. Equally, our gap-free flooring system means that dropped possessions are easily recovered.

Whatever the scale, scope or theme of your requirement, we’ll provide bespoke or off-the-peg solutions to create the event aesthetic and spectator experience of your choice. Our standard products come in a range of colours and can be adapted to incorporate padding and branding. Alternatively, we can create bespoke products, designed in line with your exact specification.

Innovative add-ons to optimise event experience

Our creative ambition allows you to push the boundaries in terms of premium customer experience at your events. We can incorporate temporary cashpoints, toilet facilities, food outlets and concessions into your grandstand seating, installing grandstands above or around existing site features, such as retail stores or restaurants.

Our grandstands can even be wi-fi enabled, empowering you to curate a fully interactive spectator experience; while GL events can incorporate add-on media solutions, including camera platforms, score-boards, AV and audio equipment, into our seating solutions.

Complete solutions for temporary outdoor events

As well as our event seating, GL events provides everything from traditional marquees and contemporary multi-deck event structures, to furniture, interior design, branding and total event overlay, meaning that our seating can easily form part of a complete temporary event solution.

If you require spectator seating to sit within a temporary structure; or if you need standalone structures to sit alongside your event seating; providing hospitality or dining spaces, kitchens or washrooms – we’ll develop a bespoke solution to meet your needs.

A portfolio of world-famous event clients

GL events provides event solutions for an impressive range of world-leading outdoor event partners. We support AEGON tennis events up and down the UK, and are contracted to provide premium seating solutions for Lancashire County Cricket Club at the Emirates Old Trafford Cricket Ground, as well as Royal Ascot and the Royal International Air Tattoo, and for a massive range of golfing clients, including the Royal and Ancient’s prestigious Open tournament.
