Creating retail theatre for over 30 years
Stagecraft – The Garden Centre Retail Display Specialists! We have been at the forefront of retail display design, manufacture and installation for over 30 years. We offer a wide range of retail display products and services designed for practicality, versatility and maximising sales.
Based in Mid Wales, the company began by supplying plant benching for garden centre displays and later developed into the much wider retail sector. Stagecraft has since worked with a variety of businesses from large retail chains such as Waitrose, John Lewis and Next, to smaller independent retailers throughout the UK, whilst retaining their position as market leaders in the supply of garden centre displays.
As the business has grown so too has its experience, skills and capacity. The company now additionally offer their expert manufacturing services for timber frame panel production for housing, as well as CNC cutting services to a variety of business sectors and private individuals, catering for both large and small scale runs.
Some of the Clients We Work With
We have worked with Stagecraft for many years on projects for the plant area, houseplants, tills and recently with our Coffee hut and seasonable plant areas. It has always been straightforward and easy; getting the job done.’
Justin Williams Managing Director – Fron Goch Garden Centre
GCA Garden Centre of the Year in 2019
We have been working with Stagecraft for the past 25 years, and use them for all our indoor and outdoor plant benches for our garden centres and more recently for the redevelopment of our newly built Haskins, Snowhill. The team at Stagecraft always deliver and we have always found the quality of the benches superior and built to last, which is important.’

Ruxley Manor Garden Centre.We were looking for a shopfitting company that could give us something different, that could work with our ideas and concepts and bring them to reality, I wanted someone flexible and willing to try new ideas, new materials and new things. I was also working to a very tight timescale so I needed someone that could commit to this project and that I could rely on to deliver. Stagecraft achieved in all these areas, we completed the project on time and were open for the key Christmas trading period. I am thrilled with the new department and the sales we are now seeing from it, it is fresh, easy to shop, inspiring and works well for both customers and team. I appreciate the input, the flexibility and the speed that Stagecraft worked and I would wholeheartedly recommend them to anyone looking for a shopfitting company.
Andrew Evans, Managing Director, Ruxley Manor Garden Centre.
We chose Stagecraft for our most recent interior retail project, partly because they are price competitive for the bespoke service they offer, and also because of the positive experiences we’ve had with them in the past, especially during our major redevelopment in 2012. The design team were excellent, they listened to our requirements and created 3D renders to help us visualise what our finished Farm Shop and Cookware department would look like. The build team were also fantastic to work with, always on time and dealt with the whole project very professionally. We are very happy with the work we’ve had carried out by Stagecraft and would highly recommend them to prospective customers.
Katie Eckley, Manager, Old Railway Line Garden Centre (GCA Garden Centre of the year 2022)
We were delighted with the service we’ve received from the Stagecraft team. From initial concept talks, through the development phase and finally the professional installation into 20 of our stores. I’m pleased to say the team delivered the project to our agreed timescales, and the end product has been a great success!
Neil Penn, Project Manager, Waitrose
At John Lewis we pride ourselves on the service we give our customers, so we were very happy to work with a design and installation display company with the same values.
Stagecraft met and delivered the brief we set. Its highly trained and helpful staff designed and executed a complex, contemporary architectural display structure which you can see in our new store in York.

Vision were provided with the timber frame panels for a new build project and from initial contact with Ray at Stagecraft, the process was quick and efficient. Stagecraft worked with our drawings to provide timber frame panels that were exactly to the specification required and manufactured to a high standard. Arranging delivery with their office was smooth and completed in a timely manner. We would highly recommend Stagecraft due to the quality and service that they provide to their Customers.
Lucy Karpinski, Director, Vision Development
Ray and his team were so easy to work with and enthusiastic from the outset. We had a pretty firm idea of how we wanted the area to work and Ray and Rhodri understood this and made suggestions, which developed the design further. Ray kept us informed of the manufacturing and delivery schedule and we were able to prepare the area in good time resulting in the installation being smooth and stress-free. We are delighted with the new area and footfall and sales have increased accordingly.’
Sally Cornelissen, Director, Burleydam Garden Centre.
