About Us

Spur creative was set up in 2006 by Phil, the Managing Director, a scenic artist painting sets and backdrops for many West End theatrical shows. The business was a very ad hoc affair for the first year and Phil, working alone, would rent spaces here and there depending on which project was on at the time. The first large project was to make 55 two-metre-high flamingos for Dubai Duty Free and it was after successfully making and shipping these on time that Phil realised he needed to get his own premises, so a small workshop was rented in Mayfield, East Sussex. In 2010, Steve, who is now General Manager of Spur Creative, joined the business and not long after, Kayleigh, now the head scenic painter, joined Spur. Together, with dedicated freelance painters and makers, they outgrew the small space and so, in 2011, they moved to their current premises, a 4000 square feet purpose-built unit. It was while here that Tomo turned up on the doorstep asking for work. He was instantly liked and, 7 years later, all four are still together, working with their regular freelance base. From those humble beginnings Spur Creative now work with international brands and ship their work all over the world, but they never forget those early days and are grateful to still have the same passion for making quality props and for offering customer satisfaction. It is because they are a good team who have a long working history and years of experience, that Spur Creative is a business that clients come back to again and again. A testament to this is that some of their very first clients are still with them 15 years later. It is their attention to detail and customer service that means they are a very respected company amongst their peers and a valuable service to their clients.

Some kind words from some of our regular clients:

Spur Creative are a delight to work with.  Props produced are always met with such attention to detail and finesse and their expertise and knowledge is always trusted and injected into projects, in order to achieve the vision of the supplied brief.   I have worked with Spur Creative for nearly 10 years and without a doubt would recommend their services and will continue to work alongside them for years to come.  If it is elevated, creative and bespoke props that you are after then Spur Creative should be your first point of call
