Our team of experts can guide you through temporary power to special effects, licensing to health and safety, sound systems to lighting.

Technical services for theatre

We understand the requirements and demands theatres, schools and drama societies are often working to and that no play, musical or comedy gig is ever the same. No matter the size of your production we take pride in working closely with you to develop the best technical solution to suit your needs.

We can help to develop technical specifications, aid in drafting technical riders, short or long term hire packages as well as provide support throughout your run. 

A venue looking for production assistance? We can guide venue managers through technical riders, and provide supplementary equipment to meet the specification of an incoming production. Available at short notice and on either long or short term contracts.
