About Us

If you are organising an event let us shoulder the  worry about making sure your production is as good as it can be for your budget.  You do not need to know all about how to operate mixing consoles, how to set up lighting rigs, understand how  DMX control works or which type of microphone to use.

That’s where we at Loud and Bright come in.

Having worked within the industry since 1998, we have all the skills, knowledge and experience to make sure you get the right sound and lighting equipment for your function – be it a corporate event, a wedding or even a 50th birthday party.
