Theatre Equipment Rental

Theatre Equipment Rental

Sound, lighting, video, and rigging for theatre productions

Long-term and short-term rental of sound, lighting, video and stage engineering equipment.

From arena tours of Elf and Mrs Brown’s Boys, to supporting grassroots theatre productions, theatre is a big part of our history.

Equipment Rental

We’ll work with your designers and supply an equipment package to their specifications.  We’ll ensure everything is packaged in the right way taking account of your touring schedule and changes you’ll make to the systems along the way.

We can provide as much or as little as you like—from a simple lighting console hire or wireless microphone package, to complex arena-size touring systems incorporating all aspects of sound, lighting, video, and rigging.


Our Technical Services team and in-house designers can help design your production, or help you work out the best way to deliver on a new idea.

Want a space to work on your design? Our WYSIWYG suite is available to hire.

Full service

We work with producers, venues, designers, and theatre companies to provide technical advice, equipment rental, and technicians for long-term and short-term projects.

You get access to our designers, technicians, huge stock of the latest equipment, and over 35 years’ experience—from the earliest stages of the design process to the end of your last get out.
