BES are at the core of an increasing number of large-scale events including charity fundraisers, council events, arts events and music festivals.

But we don't just offer large scale productions, we love to work on your bespoke events such as gigs and club nights or private functions.

We have the resources and expertise to provide fully rigged stages with lighting, line-array sound systems and AV production. We have festoon lighting, trussing, rigging and power distribution. We can assemble the resources for full event production, or dry hire of singular bits of kit.

Based in Bristol we have excellent access country-wide, and our low overheads mean we can be truly competitive in London, even with transport factored in.

BES understands the need for adaptable and flexible working practices to deal with the kinds of pressures that events can bring. We’ll be there to make sure everything’s up and running, and be ready to provide crucial support when things go off-plan.

We’ve been there, we’ve felt it and we love it. Our team thrive on busy, challenging environments where rain or shine the show must go on.

BES is conscientious about the environment, and always makes every effort to recycle, reuse or dispose responsibly. We always plan our logistics to minimize fuel use wherever possible. We can help make your event carbon-neutral through planting schemes or other means – just ask us how.

It's been said before but we'll say it again, no event is too big nor too small for us. We pride ourselves on being a flexible company with you, the customer, always in mind with our advice and practices. Give us a call or drop us an email if you'd like to work with us on your next venture.


  • Compass Presents

    “BES are the most professional, friendly and reliable equipment provider Compass Presents has had the pleasure of working with. Coming from the non-technical side of event production, BES really took the time to listen to our requirements and help us choose kit within the perimeters of our budget while still gaining maximum effect for our show. BES went above and beyond the call of duty, offering expert advise as well as providing brilliant kit. Finally, the whole BES team were always so friendly, enthusiastic and smiley – which goes such a long way when dropping off kit after hard days of putting on an event!”

    Charlie Harman, Producer, Compass Presents
