Lighting Hire FAQ

I don’t know what I need. Can you help?
Of course. We have years of experience designing lighting systems for events ranging from intimate private functions to stadium events. Get in touch and we will connect you with the member of our team with the best experience to help you.
How do I make a booking for lighting hire?
Give us a call on 0151 486 2214, drop us an e-mail to, or complete the form here. You’ll have the opportunity to talk through your goals with one of our lighting team who will then arrange a quote for your hire.
Can you deliver and collect the equipment?

Yes, we deliver nationwide and even work with some clients who take us to help them on their events throughout Europe. Because we own our own vehicles, our delivery and collection costs are very competitive.

Can you set-up and operate the equipment for me?

Of course. Many of our clients ask us to set-up and operate the lighting equipment for their event. We have a team of helpful and experienced lighting technicians and designers. We will always match the most appropriate team to your project.

Do you offer a lighting design service?

Yes. Our in-house lighting designers have designed lighting systems for major events and festivals throughout the UK and internationally.

Are long-term rental options available?
We are used to working with clients looking for long-term hires because of our background in the touring industry. However, event venues and other rental companies are increasingly hiring lighting from us on a long-term basis because it can work out much more cost-effective than owning their own.
If you are interested in a long-term hire, get in touch and we would be more than happy to talk you through the various options.
What areas of the country do you cover?
Because we own our own vehicles we are able to provide cost-effective lighting hire anywhere in the UK.  As a result, we regularly deliver events throughout the UK from Glasgow and Edinburgh to Liverpool, Manchester, Birmingham, London, and even as far south as Cornwall.
Because we provide touring lighting systems for international artists we are familiar with the process of supplying lighting anywhere in Europe including taking into account transport and health & safety requirements.
Do you offer dry hire lighting?

Yes, we offer lighting dry hire and are happy to arrange delivery and collection if needed.
