Hawthorn's picture


Hawthorn are award-winning creative technical event production experts – it’s our job to make your events look and sound amazing. And after 28 years in the business, we really know our stuff.

As the UK’s largest independent stage equipment hire company, our warehouse is a great big toolbox for professionals who need the quality kit, but not the whole caboodle.

We’ve got over £16.5m worth of technical equipment, including lighting, sound, video, staging, rigging and drapes, so the chances are we’ll have what you need. If you want to hire a single spotlight, that’s fine. If you want to hire a full lighting rig with chandeliers, a media server and sequinned drapes, that’s completely fine too.

Based in Leicestershire, London and Cambridge, with our cutting-edge gear, ingenious team and unwavering focus on quality, we’re proud to deliver a truly amazing service. And that’s why many of our clients choose to work with us again.
