What Audio Visual Hire Services Do We Provide?

When you get in touch with our team, we’ll always take the time the discuss the details and scale of your event. We’ll talk you through possible audio visual hire options, tailoring our recommendations to your needs. So, for an intimate event, a PA system which can be heard over background music or noise could be the most appropriate choice. For larger events, we offer bespoke AV hire packages and will perform an onsite survey to make sure the AV equipment works in the way you need it to.

As a forward-thinking team, we ensure the results are always what you want them to be, using cutting edge technology to produce the best outcomes. AV equipment is a highly effective way of transforming a venue, and our talented specialists can design the setup to complement your décor or continue your colour theme. We can also use projectors, video walls and plasma screens for visual aids, helping to deliver your messages with text, imagery or branding. We can also create beautiful looking stages with a choice of backdrops, drapery, lighting and lecterns.

From start to finish top class service. Regular contact to hash out the final details. Everything that we asked to be played on the night was played and delivered in a way that kept the party going all night. Such a personal service which we couldn’t fault. Can’t recommend highly enough.

We met with the company, and expressed how we wanted our evening to look like. They completely listened to every wish, and we did not have to think about anything. I would totally recommend them for any function. Our guests also commented on what a brilliant evening they made it.

An email in order to thank you and your team for the wonderful evening we had last Friday, the DJ was amazing, he was very professional and kept the floor full for the evening. Everyone had a wonderful time, I would without hesitation recommend you and your team for the wonderful service and professional approach that your team have.

Mark Bell

You definitely exceeded my expectations. The DJ was brilliant playing all the right songs to keep my guests dancing. The uplighting was magical and created a stunning look for the evening (loved seeing the hearts on the ceiling). And the 3D photo booth was a massive hit and all the guests (even the golden oldies) had great fun, I don’t think there was a moment when it wasn’t in use.

Ella Rakowicz

From the selfie mirror, to the dance floor, to the big light up Love & Mr & Mrs sign, to the amazing DJ, we loved it all. It was set up perfectly. We have had so many comments on how great the music was that night and we are so glad we chose you.

Rebecca & James Axell

The starlight dancefloor, LOVE letters and lighting really made the venue really come alive and got so many compliments, and of course everyone loved the photobooth, even Chris’s 94 year old Gran!

We will not hesitate to recommend you to anyone for their wedding/party in the future.

Danny and his team are second to none. From our initial enquiry, through to the booking and follow up courtesy calls, the communication and advice they gave ensured our disco was perfect.

Lighting

Lighting is an amazing way to make an impact at any event, setting the mood and enhancing the guest experience. Many clients use lighting to draw attention to the branding of their products, enhance focal points or even improve the quality of photography.

Whatever effect you want your lighting to have, we’ll put together ideas so that you can control the focus and mood created.

We’ll help you select the best lighting for your needs, whether looking to light up a historical building at night, project a custom logo around a venue or highlight an area where a performance is taking place. Just let our knowledgeable team know what’s required.

  • Control over your lighting: Choose between a basic control system if lighting is being used to create an ambience or an advanced lighting display which is programmed to music. The latter requires professional expertise to programme moving lighting heads.

  • Power: LED lights can be used for smaller events which use less power, but the amount of power required for lighting larger setups needs to be more heavily considered.

  • Positioning: Event lighting can be positioned wherever it’s required, using ceiling anchor points, stands or trusses, depending on the venue setup.

  • Lighting types: Lighting choices include LED uplighting which delivers a bright light and is easily concealed. It’s even effective for day events and comes in many colour combinations. Other options include fixed or zoomed lights, par cans, source fours, follow-spots, water-resistant architectural lights and bespoke gobo projection.

We want your guests to pay attention, so that means creating crisp and clear sounds even at smaller events where you may believe an amplifier wouldn’t usually be needed.

Larger PA systems can help with even sound distribution around oddly shaped rooms for larger audiences.

Luckily, our sound engineers are on hand during all events to ensure the sound quality is enhanced as much as possible.

PA & Sound Systems

PA (Public Address) systems include speakers, microphones and additional equipment to amplify sound at an event. We’ll tailor your PA and sound system to the event size and its intended use, altering the style, model and performance required. Other key factors include the number of guests, venue shape, acoustics, ambient noise levels, as well as additional audio sources present such as bands, DJs, DVD players, laptops and iPads. We’ll also consider if the venue is situated in a residential area (sound limits may be in place) and whether the event sound needs to be recorded.
