The Jack Petchey Foundation Awards Events

ESS Hire provide production services for The Jack Petchey Foundation’s 80 awards events each year. These are held in theatres, town halls and schools across London and Essex. For each event we provide a basic package of effects lighting, projection, microphones and engineers and then use the venue’s in house equipment, supplementing from our hire stock where necessary. We work closely with the Foundation and each venue to ensure each event is a success.

Twinwood Festival

Twinwood festival is a 1940s, 50s and 60s music festival held in Bedford in August. ESS Hire have been involved in the festival for many years and now provide sound, lighting and engineers for all 11 of the festival’s stages. The build covers five days where we are working alongside other trades such as marquee and generator companies, ensuring that everything is ready on time.

“You tech people are the unsung heroes. The sound is absolutely incredible—studio quality in a big woodland glade! All the other stages too—outstanding!”
