We are more than happy to liaise directly with the venue and arrange to come in and have everything setup and ready before your guests arrive. The Pianos themselves are custom made for the show and weigh only 22KG, the legs fold in and they can be easily lifted by one person. Once packed down they measure 145cm x 100cm x 25cm so they will fit through most doorways.

A temporary loading bay/area must be provided at the Venue in order for PianoFactor to load-in and load-out all equipment

Access plays a big part in the setup time so if there are long corridors, steps or other obstacles then please take this into consideration in addition to normal setup time. There may be an additional fee if the function room is not at ground level and there is no lift access. Please check with us beforehand if access route involves steps.

Minimum door width: 0.65m
Minimum lift size: (L)1m x (W)0.65m (H)1.5m

PianoFactor reserves the right to refuse to load in the equipment if it considers the access dangerous/unsafe/impassable or if there is a risk of injury to the PianoFactor crew or to anybody else present.

The Client shall procure that adequate parking is provided before, during and after the performance. Parking requirements will be detailed in the contract.

Duelling Pianos

6m x 3m is a perfect space for the duelling pianos show. Usually the setup is configured in a line with drums in the middle and the pianos each side. The setup is very flexible though and we have options to setup in various configurations.

One Piano Show

4m x 3m is the perfect space for the One Piano Show with drummer, without Drummer then 3m x 3m is great.

If you have any concerns regarding space then please contact us and we can assess the venue.


Depends on the venue access. Straight from the trailer into a marquee would take around 20 mins. Through the corridors and small service lifts in an old hotel could take anything up to an hour or two.


Usually 1 hour


30 minutes - For health and safety reasons, it is essential that the room is empty of guests during this time.

Tear down

45 minutes


Same timeframe as load-in

Either of these will cover the majority of setups. For larger systems we will require more power which will be outlined in the contract.

2x 13A sockets on separate ring circuits; or
2x 16A single phase sockets.

We are happy to perform on a stage or on the floor. If you do want us on a stage and the venue does not supply one then please contact us

We will do all we can to stay within the limits of a sound limiter if one is in place. We have UPS backup power protection in place but there is still a small risk of damage to equipment if a sound limiter cuts off the mains power at any point.
