About Us

Who Are We?

We are a multi discipline production company working across all facets of the live events industry – conferences, launches, award ceremonies, exhibitions, experiential and creative activations.

As a company many of our roots stem from the theatre arts and so we are perhaps more inventive and creative than you might find elsewhere in the events industry.  Everything we do starts with a concern for the aesthetic with an intention that every project, however large or small, looks brilliant.

We aim to be approachable and personable.  At all times we want to make our clients’ lives as easy as possible.  We employ people with character and personality and we hope to be a breath of fresh air for everyone we work with.

We aren’t any run-of-the-mill production company.  We’re a ‘can do’ team with personality and a sense of adventure..

What Do We Do?

We design, we build, we light, we project, we paint, we dress, we drape, we invent and we programme.  We say yes and we get on with it. We’re organised and productive, creative and experienced.

We have a vast breadth of experience and employ designers, visualisers, project managers, technicians, set builders, scenic artists, drape makers and dressers.  When we say we can do almost anything, we actually mean it.  Look at some of our project galleries and see for yourself.

Our attitude is that under most circumstances, there’s always a way – whatever it is you need, be it a treehouse on the banks of the Thames where no trees exist, a moving video wall you can shoot footballs against, a giant bull sculpture at a festival in three days flat, a massive water wheel that charges mobile phones… tell us what you need – there’s always a way.

Who Are Our Clients?

Most of our major events clients are creative branding and advertising agencies.  We work hard to build long lasting, trusting relationships with companies to produce fast and stunning results.  We constantly deliver, on time, on budget and above and beyond expectations.  As deadlines get shorter and shorter, the ability to produce what is needed, in a matter of days without allowing the timescale to affect quality or attention to detail, is absolutely crucial.  This is what we do, we produce amazing events, seemingly from nowhere, at unbelievable speed.

Our drapes department works alongside installation companies, architects and other production companies, West End theatres, cruise ships and major event producers.  We’ve made drapes for church halls and major London event venues, shop window displays, and the world’s largest cruise ships.

Our dry hire department rents a vast array of equipment to end users, production companies and technical suppliers.  And maybe you too?
