Hear What Our Customers Have To Say

Fantastic, friendly and efficient service, most helpful company I have ever used!

Sharon Bishop – Head of Performance, Highfields School

I have worked with Dave D Events for the last four years, as Chair of the Events Sub Group of Lymm Festival. Dave and his team have provided a quality service across a number of events from a small music event in the local Golf Club, to a fully staged outdoor event. I have been very happy with their technical support and also the working relationship. Dave and his team are always professional, courteous, supportive and reliable.

Sharon Cannell, Chair of the Events Sub Group, Lymm Festival

Dave and the team are outstanding, very professional when it come’s to helping you with whatever event it may be. We use Dave D Event’s for our big parties, so mainly using the fabulous props they have such as “A night at the Movies” to “Grease is the word”. Dave is also open to suggestions and my crazy idea’s and will do everything he possibly can to help out and make it become real. 100% recommend this team and fabulous service, always reliable and the team never leave the venue until it looks perfect, which for me is great as I am a perfectionist! We look forward to hopefully working with you in the future.

Jodie Thomas – Bourne Leisure

We have been using Dave D Events for years now for our owners parties and they have never failed to impress. The props are the main talking point of all our events and along with the professional service from Dave and co, we look forward to them supplying many more fantastic events.

Dan Blower – Haven Holidays & Bourne Leisure

I have known Dave Dewsnip for a few years. I became a Drama Teacher in 2007, getting a job at Egerton Park Arts College in Denton. Dave was occasionally involved in performances at the school and a few colleagues sang his praises. When I decided to direct Bugsy Malone the Musical at Denton Community College, my first thought was to contact Dave, as I knew he would do a good job.

I was more than impressed with the service I was given. The communication and commitment to the project was first class; and this was not only from Dave himself but from other staff that work for Dave; including Alex, who was also brilliant throughout the process.

Bugsy was a great success and Dave was a pleasure to work with. The overall sound and lighting was exactly what I wanted and the technical rehearsals ran very smoothly. Whenever I needed advice or had any questions they were always answered. I would definitely use Dave again in the future………….Thanks Dave.

Angela Henry (Teacher of Drama) – Denton Community College

I had been looking for a Greased Lightning to appear at our Family Fun Day for a while and I was delighted to find out that there was one to hire with Dave D Events. From my first enquiry Dave got back to me straight away offering a reliable and professional service. Everyone was so excited to have their photos taken in the care and it really made our Grease themed event more special. Thank you to the whole team from the booking to the delivery.

Rachel Todd MA – Marketing Manager

Just a quick email to say a HUGE thank you to you and your team for the fantastic set and car for our production of Grease this week! It really made a huge difference, and contributed significantly to the success of the show!  I will forward you some pictures once I have downloaded them!  Equally, check out our @HavelockPerform on Twitter, where there are already some pictures!

Your delivery drivers were excellent – really helpful and professional, and did a lovely job with us last night, when we were so tired!

Emma Marshall – Havelock Academy

Dave and the team were a great company and team to work with, we had lots of ideas for customizing the set which they went out of their way to support with, and the end result was brilliant.

The team could not do enough to support throughout, even with the high volume of emails, and calls, from myself asking for additional items or support.

I would recommend them to anyone, and found them that good to work with, have already asked them to support with our next production.

Once again, we had a brilliant show, which sold out every night, and which with the set looked amazing.

If anyone would like to get a verbal reference for Dave and the team, please do contact me by email or phone, and i would be more than happy to…

Mark Fitzgerald – Production manager BSMTC juniors

I use Dave D Events for all academy and corporate bookings. I find them to be extremely professional, creative, imaginative, reliable and efficient. They provide a first class friendly service at all times. No job is too big nor too small.
