SIS Global Seating sets the standard for quality at The Mercury Theatre. For over 25 years, SIS Global Seating has supported the entertainment industry in achieving first class comfort, functionality and aesthetics.

It is this commitment to design and engineering excellence that has forged SIS Global Seating’s long term partnership with The Mercury Theatre in Colchester, which first specified over 500 theatre seats for its Main Theatre in 2005.

Over the last 16 years, the installation has offered audience members first class ergonomics, whilst providing the theatre with impressive durability. 

As part of a dedicated upgrade project, which included significant building and refurbishment works, SIS Global Seating was approached by The Mercury Theatre in 2020 to replace its original seating and provide a classic yet contemporary uplift to the auditorium.

With a dedicated team of engineering experts specialising in the design, installation and servicing of theatre seating systems, The Mercury Theatre was confident SIS Global Seating could successfully fulfil every aspect of the brief, from initial concept, through to removal and replacement.

SIS Global Seating’s team of design and engineering experts worked in close collaboration with Nik Frampton, The Mercury Theatre’s Facilities & Projects Manager, along with Theatre Consultant, Charcoal Blue, to design, space plan, create seating layout, manufacture and install its industry leading F6000 theatre seats throughout the newly refurbished auditorium.
