“The committee would like to give a major shoutout to our irreplaceable Harvey and Charlie, and their crews from E.H. Events & Marquees Ltd and Pro-Event Hire Ltd! They not only worked hard to make our May Ball look incredible and run smoothly, but also provided immense support to all of our committee members by being our rocks throughout the entire preparations process and on the night itself – as well as being great fun to have around! We couldn’t do it without you!” – Darwin X St Edmunds May Ball 2018 Committee
“Excellent service from Pro Event Hire! Charlie’s wealth of experience helped a lot when planning the event. On the day, the set-up was quick and the staff were very flexible in meeting our needs. The stage and lighting looked great!” – James Antell, CUS Spring Ball
Pro Event Hire are experienced in working with Cambridge Council to submit the required sound method statements prior to a college ball. We carry calibrated sound measurement equipment on the evening to make sure no sound limits are exceeded. The PA systems we spec and install are all with this kept in mind. We will never install an over sized PA system to any are of the event.
Our sound engineers are skilled and experienced in working with all types of bands and DJs. Band changeovers are kept as slick as possible with prior planning from our team.
Create a big impact on your stage with our stage lighting design and operation. Skilled lighting technicians will design your lighting show based on the style of music to be played on the particular stage. This maybe a simple subtle show using warm colours for a more relaxed stage. Head to the main stage to see moving lights, strobes (optional) with a full spectrum of colours being used. The lighting systems will be complimented with haze effects to create in air beams scanning across the famous architecture of your Cambridge College.
The buildings are trees in the Cambridge Colleges are stunning. Add in some clever lighting and the atmosphere is instantly elevated. Choose from slow scrolling colour fades, bold static colours or maybe hanging fairy lights to create a chilled atmosphere.
