Full Event Production Service

Want to make sure your next event stands out? From conferences, meetings, award ceremonies to theatre productions, we can support with any aspect of an event. We understand that many agencies, companies and organisations may not have the capacity or expertise to manage internally all the complexities needed to produce a seamless event, and this is where our expertise and flexibility is most obvious.

Flexibility is key to producing the very best event, whilst keeping a control on costs, and therefore we would be delighted to work with you on all or part of the process.

Let’s take a look at an example planning your next conference? With the use of clever and imaginative lighting, a stand out stage, adorned with your company logo and slogan, and a presentation designed by us that uses animation and video, projected onto a super wide screen from a HD projector, we’ll make sure that impression is good.

Why not come to us and let us suggest how to make any event an unforgettable one.

We can help with any of the following:

Launch Events
Conferences
Award Ceremonies
Annual General Meetings
Fashion/Catwalk Shows
Gala Dinners
Trade Shows
Christmas Parties
Theatre productions
Event Production & Management
Event Technicians

Lighting Equipment

Design & Build

One thing we are very proud of here at Dave D Events is our design and build services. We have a group of highly skilled craftsmen who work in our own workshop to build nearly every piece of custom prop or set piece we offer.

Design Services

Do you have a vague idea of what you would like your set, props or theming to look like, but don’t know how best to achieve this in the real world?

Well, with consultation with our designers we can take those initial ideas and create a finished product.

We will, of course, keep you updated throughout the design process and ensure you are happy with the designs before the final plans are signed off and sent over to the workshop.
On our site we have our own workshop where we put those designs into practice.

Using tried and tested traditional methods of woodwork and metal construction along with newer techniques in plastic and perspex laser cutting, screen and fabric printing, we bring those designs to life.

We then have the space to add those finishing touches before loading them onto transport to bring to your event.

Technical Services

As much as Dave D Events is a full production service company, we understand that you may just be looking to hire a setup or piece of equipment to use yourself, and we can provide this service from our dry hire department.

Hear What Our Customers Have To Say

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

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 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.

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

Sharon Bishop – Head of Performance, Highfields School

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

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.

Sylvia

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
