The Workshop

Located in the Hertfordshire countryside, within easy reach of the A1, the workshop and store is ideally placed for access across the county. With over 5000 square ft, (and another 2500 available to us) sets can be built and erected, even as work in progress, enabling us to maximise the workability and ease of use at every stage. This gives you a real feel for how your vision is going to work, with accessibility at all times. Problems, or unforeseen needs can be accommodated and solved during the build, so you are secure in the knowledge that all aspects of design will work and work well upon delivery.

We can even maintain your set during production if you require. Not Just Props strives to give you the best possible service making your journey through the production as smooth and trouble free as it should be.
