St George's Square

This location is a large tree-lined open space, edged by shallow seating/steps on two sides. It is ideal for larger promotions, providing 1830 m2 of space, which includes a granite paving and grass lawn (700 m2) as well as an attractive water feature.

The larger size and open space of St George's Square make it an excellent venue for open-air concerts, festivals and arts events and creative promotional activities.


  • 16 amp power supplies available in the steps (Single-phase)
  • 32 amp drop box power supply
  • Large flood lighting from our lighting mast and integrated lighting (includes our well-known blue step lighting)
  • Attractive water feature
  • Entry via lowerable bollards on New Bedford Road/Bridge St corner of the square permitting vehicle access, whilst restricting unwanted traffic.
