We can help assist with the technical side of any event run by a ratified YUSU Society or College Commitee, from theatre and presentations to dance and live music. We are equally comfortable working in venues small and large, and dedicated theatre spaces with their own equipment, or in tempoary spaces with our portable lighting and sound.
Societies may approach us with opportunities to get involved in events. Please fill out our tech request form which lets us know everything we need in order to support your event. As a member, you may also bring in directly offered opportunities into the society, which allows you to get our members involved in our show to help out, and gives you access to our equipment stock, skills and resources.
In order to help pay for equipment upkeep and necessary consumables, including but not limited to light bulbs, tape and batteries, we ask that in return for our service, the requesting society/college contributes the greater of £20 or all incurred expenses for their event to the Technical Theatre Society.
We additionally offer equipment dry-hire, however we encourage you to first consider bringing the opportunity to us, giving you access to skills and resources provided for our own events. Each dry-hire is considered and quoted individually by the Technical Theatre Society committee.
In order to bring an event to us, or dry-hire equipment, you must be a paid society member and complete our mandatory health and safety induction session.
Unfortunately we are unable to assist external groups or individual private events.
