A London Audio Visual Hire Company




On Tour Events is a reputable, well recognised audio visual company specialising in sound hire and sound system design across all event sizes, whether for a large-scale outdoor event or small conference/award show. We stock a comprehensive range of digital mixing consoles, wireless microphone systems, and we also offer comprehensive PA systems. 


We use proven, highly skilled sound engineers that we have worked with over many years. Like us, they have been tried, tested, and proven over time, giving you total peace of mind that you are in the best possible hands. Audibility is vital for any event, as distorted sound setups producing feedback through poor quality microphones or poorly designed systems do not allow you to accurately get your message across at your event.


Here at On Tour Events, that's not an outcome you'll ever have to suffer.




To ensure no sound issues occur, we provide a high level of service using professional sound equipment mixed with 25+ years of experience under our belts. So not only are we knowledgeable with controlling / maintaining quality sound we are also quick to resolve any potential problems. A bad sound system does not result in a high-end production. 


Therefore, if you are looking for sound equipment for your next event regardless of what that event may be, it would be great to talk with you & see what we can do to assist. Please note do not offer a dry hire collection service so any event where we supply sound equipment there is always an engineer on site to deliver, install, operate & derig the sound equipment.​


Sound equipment hire is an essential service for any event that requires a little more when it comes to sound. It might seem obvious, but it's worth reminding you that without good quality sound systems, no message or story would come across correctly.

That's irrespective of your event too. Whether you are hosting a keynote speaker at your conference or hosting an outdoor theatre production in Hyde Park, it doesn't matter. Without expertly designed sound setups that accurately match your needs, your event will fall flat on its face.


Here at On Tour Events, we offer sound equipment hire services that cover all of your requirements and then some.

Our sound team is second to none. They are just as at home designing sound systems as they are advising you on creating the best possible PA system setup within your budget constraints. Within one or two phone calls, we can deliver a precise quote for a sound equipment hire package that will blow through all expectations. 


While our sound engineering team is excellent in all aspects of sound design and mixing, we appreciate that in many ways, you are only as good as your equipment. For this reason, we only use the best brands in the sound industry.


Our hire stock includes everything you would expect from London's leading sound hire company. We stock Shure microphones, d&b audiotechnik PA speakers, and digital mixing consoles from industry-leading names such as Yamaha, Pioneer, and Midas.

If a piece of equipment is not a leader in its respective field, we don't add it to our hire stock. It's as simple as that. Yes, that means we will never be the cheapest sound hire outfit in London, but it's worth the peace of mind that comes with working with equipment that guarantees quality.

What Types of Events Require Sound Hire London Services? 


In short, all types of events benefit from sound equipment hire London services. It's worth starting with an obvious candidate, such as a conference.


If you are hosting a conference, then it is likely that your event will require some sound equipment to ensure attendees can hear what is being said without struggling because of background noise such as air conditioning, audience murmuring, or other environmental factors. In this case, hiring PA systems and microphones is an absolute must, which we can, of course, provide at an unbeatable value for money.


Another scenario that requires sound equipment hire is music festivals.

If you are hosting a music festival, you should source the sound equipment and PA systems to ensure the artists on stage sound their best. Inadequate PA hire setups leave audio bleeding from one side of event space to another. But with our expert sound system design team and top-notch line array equipment, we ensure that you deliver the best possible audio experience for your screaming fans.


There are no worries about feedback or poor-quality sound from our turnkey suite of line arrays and outdoor PA systems, plus they are durable enough to stand up to the infamous British elements.

Sound equipment hire is also an essential component of any corporate event - both large and small. It doesn't matter whether you are putting together an exciting product launch or an annual company awards show. You need an immersive sound experience to ensure everyone remains on the edge of their seat throughout the event.


Then you have private event hire occasions. You may be planning a house party, birthday party, or a garden party for life milestones. No matter the specific type of party, we can provide you with speaker packages that get everybody on the dance floor! Yes, even for a small house party!


We started out in the events industry by supplying DJ, sound and lighting equipment packages. While we have dramatically expanded as a company, we never forget those times. So no matter how small your event may be, we can supply whatever you need. From special effects machines to AV equipment. we are your "go-to" hire company




We stock everything you could possibly need concerning sound equipment for your event. With three warehouses chocked full of sound gear, it's hard to give you a specific run-down.

However, the list below may help to give you an idea:

  • PA Speakers

  • Line Arrays

  • Subwoofers

  • Stage Monitors

  • Power Amplifiers

  • DJ Equipment

  • Digital Mixing Consoles

  • Wired and Wireless Microphones

  • In-Ear Monitoring

  • and much, MUCH more!


Again, to emphasise the point further, these are merely our most popular hire items. If there is anything you require that is a little more specialised, please speak to a member of our sound team, who will undoubtedly inform you that we have the hardware in question in stock. 


What Makes On Tour Events’ Sound Hire Service Unique?

Several elements of our sound hire services ensure that we continue to differentiate ourselves from other London-based sound hire companies.


Firstly, our superior level of service combines the best professional sound equipment with 25+ years of sound engineering experience under our belts. Not only are we knowledgeable with controlling/maintaining quality sound, but we are also quick to spot and resolve any potential problems. We rigorously check and recheck all equipment before an event, and we are yet to report an equipment failure after over two decades in business. How's that for a track record? 


Secondly, our service is not just any old dry hire collection service. For any event we supply sound equipment to, an engineer is always on-site to deliver, install, operate, and de-rig the sound equipment afterwards. We can also take over the audio mixing duties as well, should you want us to.


Lastly, we don't just supply you with turnkey sound hire packages. We can supply all elements of event production, including but not limited to stage hireevent lighting hireLED screen hirescreen and projector hire, and live streaming equipment hire

We have a live band for our wedding / event & need an audio visual company to sort everything out, do you offer this service?


Absolutely is the short answer! We stock a comprehensive range of sound / audio equipment all in house which means we do not need to go elsewhere to hire in from third party audio visual companies. This allows us to offer extremely competitive prices and a reliable service as we are not depending on external factors.


Without going into anything technical, essentially the level of equipment we stock is very reputable, versatile, and used across the world meaning we can cater for all levels of live music. Whether it is a small local band, a more experienced band with higher expectations of production or a class act with specific requests.


This includes the infrastructure a band requires such as monitors, mics, stands, mixing consoles and of course the speakers themselves. Not only can we provide the audio aspect we can accomplish the production with lighting, staging and LED video screen if this is required.


As mentioned above when we provide our audio services there will be a sound engineer on site throughout to ensure the production runs smoothly and to liaise with the band to take the weight of your shoulders, so you can enjoy your reception without a glitch.


Do you have a stock list of sound equipment you can send us?


We prefer to discuss our client’s requirements with them individually as each event is so different with different requirements.

This way each event is personalised with our team to ensure the best most suited sound production for that particular event. Of course, we are happy to discuss and send over information about the brands that we stock.


How much does it cost for a sound system with a technician for my event?


This is a very popular question, with ambiguous answers! It depends on what type of event you are putting on, the audience size, is it inside or outside and varying other factors as well.


The best way to get an accurate cost is to give us a call or send us an email with your requirements so we can discuss what would best suit your event, and you would receive a proposed quote pretty quickly after the initial contact with us.

For now we can lay out some examples to go by…


If it is a smaller type of event, inside to set up for a conference or corporate event we would normally provide our more compact d&b Audiotechnik E3 speakers with a mixing console, couple of radio mics and a technician. This set up would cost roughly around £350, depending on location.


Perhaps it is a larger indoor event where the PA needs to be distributed to offer the best sound coherence within the room, 5 radio mics ( whether they are handheld, lapel or headset mics ) mixing console with a sound technician you would be looking at between £500-£700 depending on location.


Changing it up slightly let’s say you were putting on an outdoor festival event for 1000 people and you require a suitable sound system for a 5 piece live band. To include the right speaker set up, mixing desk, 5 x monitors, mic pack for the band with stands, DIs and a sound technician a rough cost would be £2500-£3800 depending on location.

As mentioned above this is open to so many alternatives so please feel free to get in touch with us directly and we would be happy to go through your requirements to offer you the most suitable quote.


How long does it take to set up the speakers & microphones?


This varies as there are determining factors which will result in how long it takes for set up.

It depends on what set up you have opted for; what level of production are we supplying, is there easy access into the venue or are there obstacles in terms of limited parking / steps / narrow passageways on entry? The list goes on….

Do not worry we ask the right questions in advance of any booking so we can allocate enough time for getting everything into the venue and setup with time to spare.


In most cases we set up the day before the event which leaves plenty of flexibility with time.

If the venue has a strict policy with time, say it has to be set up on the day of the event because they have another function the day before, no problem we will have the information beforehand from the initial enquiry with reference to access and have factored that into the agreed time for set up. Having worked in and around London for many years our guys are very experienced with awkward access and have a can-do attitude to speed up the process.


To give some very rough examples for your piece of mind, let us assume we are supplying a small speaker set up, with desk, mics and a small stage to a venue with straightforward access. From when the guys turn up outside the venue to being finished with the setup it should take about 2-3 hours.


Let us use this same example again but change it to awkward access on entry, perhaps limited parking or even no parking outside the door. This will increase the time and add on at least an hour.

Please note the above examples are based on rough estimations, as noted above we will go over the set up beforehand with you and organise the most suitable time for delivery in order to iron out any potential issues, so we can be up and running without breaking a sweat! 


We need wireless clip-on microphones for our conference speakers / presenters & a basic audio setup, can we hire just this from On Tour Events?


Not a problem at all. We stock a range of alternative radio microphones to suit different types of events. Some people prefer having a clip-on mic while others like the headset mics.

We are happy to offer our audio visual services for more intimate functions without having to provide the whole lighting, screen and staging production.


More often than not clients come to us with a small request such as this without knowing that we offer bespoke packages to include all elements they may require such as spot lighting, staging, screens, lecterns, backdrops etc.

Some clients are delighted they have found a supplier who can provide all the equipment they need from one place whilst others are just after some sound with mics for their event. Either way we are happy to supply what is required for that client whether it be a standard PA setup with mic or a full production.


Can we pick up the sound equipment from your warehouse in London?


We do not offer dry hire options, so collection from us is not possible. Most clients who come to us require a level of production with knowledgeable crew / technicians who can set up for them and remain on site throughout the event as support.

We offer a turnkey solution for our clients, where we can supply the production elements in house, so they are dealing with one supplier only that turns up to the desired venue / location and ensures the set up is completed before the event begins.


We want to hire a large festival PA system, is this something you offer?


We can most certainly assist with this. A lot of the work we carry out is for outdoor festivals where we supply the stage, sound equipment, lighting, and LED video screens.

However, if it is just the sound system for the festival you require then that is no issue.


We would find out from you what audience capacity you would be expecting, whether you are having live music / DJs or both then suggest the most suitable PA system for your needs once we have looked over the technical riders.

The PA hire options we stock in house are extremely reputable, versatile, and used across the world for all types of tours from amateur bands to large popular acts. So, we have absolutely no doubt that you would be completely satisfied with the level of sound quality they would produce.


What brand of sound equipment do you stock & use?


We won't go into too much detail with this answer as we have already covered this previously across the page, we don’t want to be too repetitive!

In order for On Tour Events to be able to supply our services for all types of events of all sizes, we opted for premium brands which are well renowned within the sound industry.


We stock d&b Audiotechnik and L’Acoustics, both brands of speakers offer versatility and positive reputability. This allows us to scale up or down the PA depending on the event, confident that it will adhere to most bands requirements, work well as a distributed PA system for a corporate function or suit a large outdoor festival.


I’m looking to hire a wireless battery powered speaker system can you help?


The wireless battery powered speaker option has become quite a popular choice for product launches or smaller scale outdoor events where power is either non-existent or limited in some way

The answer to this question is yes, we do stock wireless battery speakers in addition to our passive PA systems.

To give an example of where this is used would be Burlington Academy in London, we have set up a distributed wireless PA system for a shop launch.


There was no option for speakers that required power or cabling due to the layout of the arcade and where the client's launch was positioned, it would not have worked! So, we suggested a wireless option instead which worked incredibly well. It looked neat, slick and met all the health and safety regulations from the arcade.

So if you are struggling with getting power to the place where your event will be held, we can always look at this option.


What areas of the UK do you work in?


On Tour Events is proud to work across the UK, predominantly working in and around South East London, Surrey and Manchester. These 3 locations we have either warehouses or offices to help with work loads & transport

Our services are provided throughout the UK and have expanded to Europe as well.

We have worked in several European countries on different events such as Portugal, France, Belgium and Germany.

Let us know where your event is being held, and we would be happy to discuss your requirements with you.
