About Acorn Structures

Acorn Structures is one of the UK’s largest providers of indoor and outdoor scaffold-based temporary structures and staging.

Delivering innovative solutions

Working in the main with the event, arts, film, television and sporting sectors, delivering innovative solutions whether design, event or utilitarian lead, Acorn provides not only structures but power solutions as well.

With a vast inventory of modular event system and staging kit, Acorn Structures offers not only an installation service but a hire service as well to the festival and events industry across the UK.

Acorn Structures played a key role in the reopening of the festival and event industry in 2021 following the disastrous impact Covid had on the sector in the previous year. In 2022 Acorn helped promoters with strong international reputations to ensure their events went ahead when they had been let down by other suppliers.

Leading the way in events industry training, Acorn Structures in 2022 piloted the first Events Industry Training Scheme Operatives Green Card delivered by Simian.

This will continue to be rolled out to future cohorts of employees at the beginning of every season.

Andy & Rebecca Nutter first founded the company over 26 years ago. Originally a Property Development and Scaffolding company with only 3 staff members, Acorn operated from a storage compound in the pub they once owned with Andy’s parents. Now Acorn Structures has one of the largest stocks of Layher Event System in the United Kingdom and employs more than 130 members of staff at the height of Festival season.
