Kirwin & Simpson Seating

Chair Removal and Installation


Kirwin and Simpson are available to be booked around the clock, and at short notice, to remove your auditorium chairs. We also have the capability to store your chairs away from site, for as long as you desire. We do this for a multitude of reasons and are very flexible to the theatres’ needs and booking schedules. The chairs can even be adapted to make this process as streamline as possible, particularly when the chairs come out often for Press Nights; please have a look at our Removable chair page for information on this.

Other reasons it is necessary to remove chairs include:

Adjustments in seating layouts, due to a new production going on stage, mean that the chairs might need to be removed to allow for better sight-lines.

Work carried out to auditoriums, including redecoration and new carpets being fitted, as well as maintenance checks to the building mean chairs need to be moved out the way to allow for works to continue and to protect the chairs.

Chairs can also be removed to allow ease of access when shows are changing over.

We have attended many of the top Theatres in London’s West End to remove chairs for Awards Ceremonies and filmed performances. This includes; The Royal Variety Performance at the London Palladium; the BAFTA Film Awards and the Olivier Awards at the Royal Opera House; the BAFTA TV Awards at Theatre Royal Drury Lane; and the British Fashion Awards at the London Coliseum.
