Festivals? No problem. Product Launch? We'd love to.

Event Management

Task. Team. Individual. Cake.
(The Four Sectors of Good Management.)
Events are big, there's no disputing it. It can be a long process planning and getting everything sorted ready for the big day. A decent event manager will ensure that when you get to it, everything just comes off with no quibbles or confusion. StS have experience in managing events to the smallest detail. Be efficient, be on budget, be safe and be good. Also, let's not forget that pesky Health and Safety paperwork and Risk Assessments . Our team have plenty of knowledge on completing all that paperwork so you don't have to. If you need an Event Manager to be your overseeing eye, we can supply them, (though whether they bring cake or not is another thing...)


Design it. Rig it. Patch it. Focus it. Plot it.
Lighting isn't just about being able to see things. It's about the delicate quality of a morning's sunrise, an evening sunset with the hint of romance, a full light show to accompany your festival…
…or something like that. Lighting can make or break your event and if its the simplest product launch or most complicated festival we can help pull it together. We have experience in designing for all sizes of venues, rigging in the oddest of places, and plotting with Pearls, Ions, Strands, Orbs, SmartFades, Maxims, Jesters and Frogs (none of which are 70's Glam Rock bands). So should you need an entire Lighting Design, or just someone to button bash a rock and roll gig - we can provide it.


High Quality? Sounds Good.
Asides from poor puns, StS also understands how critical sound can be to your event. If the audience can't hear, it'll be the first thing they mention on their way home and your guitar solo might as well have never happened. If your speaker is meant to be talking over the top of film footage and he isn't suitably loud then you might as well pack up and go home. If your music sounds no better than it would out of your iPhone then you might as well not bother at all. StS know that sound is critical. We aim to provide the best quality experience for your budget, and have the skills to deal with problems quickly meaning that your production doesn't suffer. Product Launches, Conferences, Festivals, Keynotes - Ask Us. We'll hear you (but refuse to stop with the puns).


It's not just PowerPoint any more.
AV is becoming increasingly common, and important, in conferences. Whilst still really the baby of technical work, this area is growing and getting it right can be a tricky business. StS work alongside some of the best video designers in the business and can make a cast iron promise that we will never use that typewriter 'ping' noise that your boss does in his "super professional PowerPoint presentations". (Unless thats the look you're going for). Seriously though, whether its just a projector for showing your keynote presentations, or complex videos of training methods - we can do it. So come on, try us.


A leg to stand on.
All of the above is great, but no good without somewhere to stand on... If you're launching a product, we can provide you with a small stage in that large hall. Outdoor Festival? No problem - we can get you that complete covered Main stage. All of our staging is safe, and subject to strict Risk assessment. Well, let's face it, we don't want to end up being one of those stage collapse YouTube videos. Our technicians are trained and more than capable of safely erecting a stage, whatever size, within a reasonable budget and on time.

Special Effects

Make your production go with a WIPAASHHH BOOM!
(And of course, a bang.)
We’re all suckers for a little excitement in our lives, and why should we let party poppers and Guy Fawkes have all the fun? Jets of sparks, glitter falling from the sky, waterfalls for that 'Westlife' key change - it’s all do-able, as is most of what's in your imagination. This is where your event starts to get really exciting. Test us with your biggest and most exciting ideas and we’ll do our best to make them happen. All StS staff are trained in Pyrotechnic Safety and provide completely safe effects with full training. Alternatively, we can stay on site and operate them for you, giving you the peace of mind to get on with more pressing matters.
