OUR SERVICES

A PERSONAL TOUCH

Our quality of service extends to analysing our client’s needs. We pride ourselves on our innovative designs and floor plans. We have a passion to surprise and delight with our tailored solutions and aim to impress and excite our clients time after time.

WE'RE HERE TO HELP

Call us or drop us an email with your enquiry. Our consultants are on hand for simple advice or full production management. From dry hire to complete event styling, we have a solution specific to you.

LET'S MEET

We are always happy to meet face-to-face and go through the details of your event. Book an appointment with us at your venue or in our meeting room and we will be happy to personally introduce you to our full range of products and services.

LARGE SCALE EVENT?

We love a challenge! To ensure all runs smoothly a site visit will ensure we bring in the right equipment, manpower and expertise.

FLOOR PLANS

If you have a floor plan and dimensions of your venue, we are able to draw up a 2D scale floor plan so you can rest assured everything is going to fit perfectly. For more complex events we may choose to draw up a 3D CAD plan at our descression for more efficient installation or to explain an idea in more detail.

PITCHES & PROPOSALS

As standard we will usually send through a basic quote as well as images of the items, however for more intricate or larger scale enquiries our team are able to put together detailed proposals and mood boards when necessary. 

At Velvet Entertainment, we relish a challenge! No two events are the same and our team apply their wealth of experience and creativity across every project to ensure that all our events are fresh, original and exciting. We take the time to understand exactly what you want to achieve and to deliver a complete event experience that goes far beyond just supplying a simple PA system, DJ or styling and branding advice.

Production is a multi-faceted service that can be quite technical and overwhelming. In this instance, we would suggest you create and submit a brief to us explaining the look and feel you are trying to create, and we will be happy to make suggestions, and guide you through of all the services we can offer to bring your event to life. If you already have certain aspects covered by other suppliers or the venue, just let us know and we will leave that out of our proposal. 

1. Create your brief.

2. Event information.

The more information you can give us at this stage will mean our initial quote is as accurate a possible and minimise the chance of any issues arising during the installation. Common things to consider would be, venue address with accurate delivery & setup times, a venue floorplan with dimensions and images are always extremely useful for our team if we are not already familiar with the venue. Any loading restrictions unique to the venue, for example, are there stairs or lifts that will need to be used? Is there easy access and parking for large vans outside the venue? If you have an idea of budget at this stage it is very useful so we understand what your expectations may be.

Hi Velvet team,

I have an event at venue X where there will be 150 guests attending a corporate gala dinner. It will be a drinks reception followed by a formal dinner and then dancing. I am looking for simple and classy decorative lighting and a background pa system for the reception. Then for the dinner area I would like to continue the decorative lighting as well as lighting and sound for the speeches and there will be video presentation as well. For the dancing area we would like a full dance floor lighting setup and DJ Pa system as well as staging and a black and white dance floor suitable for the venue and number of guests. The theme of the event is The Great Gatsby, so if you could please suggest something appropriate, the venue and number of guests attending. I have allowed a budget of £xxx, if you could let me know what would be possible?

Please see our faq’s page for some commonly asked questions asked when booking production.

Once you are happy with your quote and you would like to go ahead, let us know you would like to confirm and who to address the invoice to and a PO number (if applicable), and we will double check that the kit is still available and then send through a confirmation document for you to sign with our terms and conditions as well as a deposit invoice. As standard we require all bookings to be fully paid prior to your event. You can view our standard terms and conditions here.
