Services

Maintenance Contracts

Preventative maintenance is key to extending the working life and resale value of your equipment.

Whether you bought from Adlib or not, our service department offers maintenance contracts that will prolong the life of your equipment, reduce the risk of equipment failure, help you meet health & safety obligations, and ensure you get the most out of the equipment you own.

Supporting the future of our industry

We share real experience of the industry with students

We understand how important knowledge sharing is. That's why our team regularly provides industry production days and masterclasses in local educational establishments including LIPA, Liverpool Community College, and Gateacre Comprehensive School.

Rent

From a live streamed graduation ceremony, to your Christmas production

Whether it’s a couple of spotlights or a full sound, lighting, and AV solution for your theatre production, we offer the same attention to detail with every project.

Adlib has a long history working with schools and colleges—ensuring that students and teachers get the opportunity to learn from our experts at every stage of the project.

We can supplement your existing equipment with a few extra lights or microphones or turn an empty hall into a professional theatre for the week.

Our experienced technicians can deliver the whole production for you, or work alongside your staff and students—enabling them to be an involved in the process as you like and run their own show under the mentorship of our team.

"Whoever said “the impossible takes longer” obviously didn’t work on the Liverpool Guild of Students. Well done and congratulations on a great project and I very much look forward to working with you again in the future."

Andy Murphy, University of Liverpool

Buy

Invest in the right equipment, first time

Most major brands of audio, lighting, video, and stage engineering equipment are available from Adlib and 35 years’ experience working with schools, colleges, and university means we can help you choose the right equipment for your requirements and budget.  

Buy New

We are distributors or dealers for the most popular and reliable brands of sound, lighting, video, rigging and staging equipment used by schools and universities.

We offer helpful advice, competitive pricing and after-sales support to help you make the right investment and get the most from your new equipment.

Buy Ex-Hire

Quality used equipment often enables you to get more from your budget than buying new.

All of our ex-rental equipment has been professionally maintained, serviced, and looked after by experienced engineers throughout its life so you can be confident you’re choosing a product that will last for years to come.

"The pupils will get a lot out of using this. We’ve had so many requests from people who we didn’t even realise would be involved in theatre or the arts, coming to run the shows and to learn how that particular side of theatre arts works."

Dan Bishop, Director of Music, Liverpool College

Install

From individual classrooms to professional theatre spaces

Whether you’re an architect, consultant, teacher, or technician, we understand your unique situation because of our 35+ years’ experience delivering installations for schools and universities.

Our internal team will look after all aspects of your project from design through procurement, logistics, installation, and commissioning.

Once the installation’s complete, you can make the most of your investment and get complete peace of mind tailored with a tailored service and maintenance contract where we look after things like LOLER inspections, PAT testing, and preventative maintenance.

The processes and systems that we've invested in enable us to deliver consistently, in a safe environment, with a "can-do" attitude and friendly approach. All of our project managers and site supervisors have undertaken IOSH SSTS/SSMS training and they ensure the safety of our team and co-ordination with other trades and contractors.

Installation projects include:

  • Stage lighting
  • Projectors and screens
  • Sound systems
  • Stage curtains and tracks
  • Stage electrics
  • Stage rigging

"It’s about the facilities and opportunities this hall provides and when we showcase events or do assemblies it helps us in demonstrating our high standards. It endorses our high standards, because for us high standards are not just academic, they are about every aspect of school life – including our facilities."
