Who We Are

About Adlib

Hire, sales, and installation of professional audio, lighting, video, rigging and staging equipment for the live events industry .

Every day is different

From our head office in Liverpool and our new facility in Glasgow, we provide sound, lighting and video equipment to buy, hire or install anywhere in the UK and Europe.

Whether it’s a stadium tour or the purchase of a single microphone, our team provides the highest level of service and personal attention with the full support of the industry’s leading equipment manufacturers.

Since 1984, we’ve built a reputation for quality, reliability and a team of great personalities. Every day is different and every project unique. We’ve toured the world with a vast range of artistes, we’ve produced major international exhibitions and we’ve grown to become of one of the largest technical partners in the UK event industry. But these achievements don’t happen without the spirit and dedication of a passionate team.

In a fast moving industry, where requirements can change at the drop of a hat, a technical partner who can turn on a sixpence and act on unexpected changes is a huge asset.


Our own fleet of vehicles reduces transport costs, our strong manufacturer relationships ensure fast backup and support, our extensive hire stock means there’s never a compromise on delivery and our commitment to training ensures there’s always a great team on the ground.

The processes and systems that we’ve invested in are the framework that allow us to deliver consistently well in a safe, environmentally friendly way.

Over 32 years, this is how we’ve built a highly respected business that serves the event industry around the world every single day.

If you think we could help with your next project, get in touch and we’ll be happy to help.

Team with personality

It’s not just about owning the kit, but it’s the people and the personalities that surround you. They make Adlib.
