Services & Fees

Our Services

We can help run the technical side of any event run by a ratified YUSU Society or College Committee, 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 temporary spaces with our portable lighting and sound.

Please drop us an email at technicaltheatre@yusu.org to get the conversation started.

Our members also bring in directly offered opportunities into the society, which allows other members to be involved and gives access to our equipment stock, skills and resources.

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. Dry-hire is chargeable and is considered and quoted individually.

Fees

In order to pay for equipment upkeep, electrical tape, gaffer tape and lamps we ask the event organiser to pay a small fee for our services. For any event that is on-campus this fee is £20 for the whole event. Off-Campus cost us more because we end up using more consumables and as such for an event off-campus we charge £9 per day with a minimum of £20. We may offer discounts on our fee for charity events, so please contact us if you are running a charity event or fundraiser.

For most events our array of equipment is sufficient, however for others (such as those in Central Hall or those that are larger in scale) we also pass on all expenses incurred for the event. This could be external hire, haze fluid, batteries, or anything else we feel are necessary for you event. Your assigned project manager can give you an idea of what this will cost and if you have any budget constraints it is worth talking to them. After the event we will send you an itemised invoice for you to pay.
