Theatre & stage

Live performances pose a wholly different technical challenge when dealing with firearms and safety for performers, crew and audience. Nothing can be left to chance and everything has to work first time, every time. Bare Arms provides training for cast and stage management as well as consultation throughout the rehearsal process. This ensures that everything on and off stage is carefully considered and planned to eliminate any risks. We source and rent a variety of weaponry, from non-functioning props to safe practical firing effects. Since 2018 Bare Arms have been consulting armourers to The ENO and have worked with a variety of theatre companies across London’s West End and the UK.
