A great team to work with. Nothing is too much trouble for Louis, Gordon and their team. They go above and beyond to deliver a seamless service. They are incredibly knowledgeable, and make everything incredibly easy for their clients. Incredibly hardworking and I would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone requiring their services. Having worked with them a few times now, I can assure you, you will not be disappointed. Thanks for everything so far, and I look forward to working with you again. - Georgie Bennett- Ethereal Events, Kent.

Bandshop provided a full truss, light and sound system for a New Year’s Eve party. Louis worked with me last minute to provide and transform my house into a “nightclub” style event. Communication was fantastic throughout and I couldn’t have asked for better equipment or communication. If you want to transform your party speak to these guys!

These guys are absolute legends! They helped me out with the structure for my banner and they made a project for me. When I got my banner delivered it was the wrong size and Louis worked at another last minute project and literally saved me! They didn’t leave the venue until it looked perfect and when they came for collection they even stayed a little longer as my event was delayed. 200% recommended!

Brilliant service from Gordon, Louis and the whole team to create a full working Pantomime theatre in a village hall! Ryan’s creative lighting designs brought our vision to life and the whole team couldn’t have been more helpful during last minute scope changes and technical challenges. I can’t recommend Bandshop highly enough!

Bandshop are the supplier for a few elements for Christmas at Bedgebury. We have been working together for 4 years now and I can honestly say it's a true pleasure working with Gordon and the team. Not only are they lovely, but they also adapt swiftly and politely to last minute changes and requests. Gordon also facilitates with site visits and recommendations. I look forward to working with them for many years to come. Thank you.

Gordon and Louis were a great find for our wedding. Answered any questions, kept me up to date with arrangements and on the day everything went seamlessly. The equipment was excellent and we had a plug and play setup so just put out playlists on. Lights were fabulous and very reasonably priced especially for a wedding. Thanks both!

Great service. Louis and his team kept me informed, delivered on time, great kit, picked up when he said would. No Hassel all as planned and good advice too. Dean

Really efficient ordering of equipment, communication on spec sheets, as well as delivery, setup and takedown, all with a clear description on how to use the kit. They responded to emails very quickly, and were a pleasure to deal with throughout!

  • Sometimes it's the simple things that create the biggest effect. 20 spike lights were temporarily installed on the entrance driveway to a wedding last year. Simple yet effective and left a lasting impression on the guests!
