Frequently Asked Questions

Does Adlib have experience working with other theatres in the UK?

Yes. We've worked with theatres and live event venues all over the UK - ranging from refurbishment of the safety curtain at Liverpool Playhouse, to a new sound system for Glasgow Royal Concert Hall.

What locations do you cover?

From our facilities in Liverpool and Glasgow, we provide installation services throughout the UK. Because we regularly deliver installations all over the UK, we have installation and service engineers located throughout the UK. This enables a fast response time, and reduced costs.

Will we get any kind of warranty?

You will get the full benefit of any manufacturer's warranty and, if you choose to include an Adlib service contract in your project, you’ll be able to predict the ongoing cost of maintaining your installation to ensure it’s as good as it was on day one for years to come.

Can we arrange a site visit?

Yes. If you're considering Adlib for your installation project, we'll want to spend some time with you to look at your space and get to meet your team.

Can Adlib provide ongoing service and maintenance?

Yes - we have an in-house service team who can look after one-off repairs, or offer an ongoing service contract including PAT Testing, LOLER inspection, and preventative maintenance.

Do you have experience working in listed buildings?

Yes, we have extensive experience installing sound, lighting, and video systems in listed buildings - from Liverpool Cathedral to the Tower of London.
