As we've already stated, there's more to us than stages, lights and sound. We consider ourselves a one-stop production service for event organisers and promoters. Here's a sample of our additional services…
We specialise in event stages where time-critical and efficient turnarounds are essential. With scalable sound and lighting rigs we can also provide integrated systems and management for multiple stages (as well as fixed inventory for touring and corporate events). We can supply stage decks, stage covers, trussing and supports for both indoor and outdoor use, lighting rigs with 56+ moving heads and multiple RGB lasers, water-resistant fixtures, specialist low-power LED lighting where power availability is limited and remote managed and array-processed "rider-friendly" speaker systems (up to 96kW) for a massive range of venue types and audiences. For 2017 we can also supply trailer-based stage systems for super-fast set-ups and breakdowns and LED video walls to 5m x 3m.
We also understand that providing production services for festivals and similar events is not simply about just turning up on the day. Our involvement often starts at the initial planning stage, with meetings with local Council officers, discussing environmental issues, stage orientation and establishing a practical noise management policy and monitoring systems (see Noise Consultancy elsewhere on this site). We can also advise on Health & Safety, legal requirements and general production management.
This is all part of the process of establishing a long term, positive and proactive relationship with event promoters and organisers. We are proud to be associated with the management teams and crews of our regular event schedule - some of whom have been using our services right from the outset. Ultimately, your success is our success by association after all.
Whilst we are based on the South Coast, our event production services are available throughout the mainland UK. Please get in touch to see what our professional event services could do for you.
We provide all our own electrical distribution and cabling for our own stages, lights and sound rigs. In addition to this we can also supply cables, connectors, power distribution and generators to events and festival sites as a whole if required. We also can employ qualified and experienced electrical engineers. Please contact us for more information
We don't just supply and build the stages, we can manage them too. We have been managing stages at multi-band events for years and years now and know how to get bands on and off on schedule and ensure the production runs smoothly and safely.
As well as making noise, we also advise on its control. We have provided noise consultancy services and local authority liaison for festivals and events across the UK. In addition, our audio systems allow the precise control of frequency spread with the ability to map and predict noise levels in the surrounding areas. We can put together noise control plans, provide contact for local authorities and implement and document agreed noise control practice.
As our equipment inventory has grown, we've ended up with less and less space in our main warehouse for testing, set-ups and pre-production.
In April this year we opened a separate unit over the road from our main premises, dedicated to pre-production and rehearsals. With a floor area of 73 m2 (785 ft2), typically this space when booked for rehearsals features a 6m x 4m stage with drum riser, 24 channel large-format analog mixer, active FOH speaksers and subs (16kW), up to six foldback mixes through separate monitor wedges, microphones, DIs and some stage lighting.
For pre-production, the space can be rigged with any/all of our sound and lighting gear. Additional power outlets for 16A and 32A 3P are also fitted for added functionality. More information on request.
VIDEO & PHOTOGRAPHY
Above and beyond photographing and filming events, we also maintain a fully-equipped photographic studio in our pre-production space which can be hired out for shoots and even "live" band videos. All the images on this website are our own shots.
We also have an experienced design team capable of producing anything from fliers and posters to 3D plans and complex animation.
