Supporting Gala Dinners across the UK

We supply audio visual support and production to high profile Gala Dinners across the UK. From small to large, whether you are planning a charity or corporate event, HAV can help. Our diverse experience has seen us transform venues ranging from aircraft hangars in Manchester to exhibition centres in Birmingham and large hotels in London. If you are looking to promote, entertain or engage your audience we will deliver exceptional results.

HAV also regularly produce weddings, bar/ bat mitzvahs and private parties for clients who demand excellence. We transform bland function rooms into magical spaces for your special day or event.

From a simple, but impactful, lighting package to a complete room transformation. We can supply full dressing, draping, décor, theming and dance floors. You can complete the look with beautiful venue lighting and stage furniture.

Organising a Gala Dinner is a big task. A dedicated HAV Project Manager will be on hand to help take the strain and enable you to design a perfect event. You’ll need a carefully chosen staging and audio visual package including impactful lighting to create ambiance and perfect sound reproduction to ensure your guests hear every word clearly.

We will work closely with your internal team and can also assist with branding and content, graphics and Twitter walls plus auction technology and live audience for an interactive element.

HAV can cater to the specific equipment requirements of any entertainment you have booked and provide stage management on the night to allow you to sit back, relax and enjoy your Gala Dinner.

From delivery, to installation and operation on site our event design will create impact and also create excellent return on investment.

Key elements to consider for the perfect Gala Dinner

Audio Visual

A well chosen audio visual solution is key to ensuring your guests can see and hear everything that happens around the room and on stage. We can supply an array of state of the art AV equipment including sound, lighting, video and staging. We own all of the equipment we hire to you, so our technicians are expert in set up and operation. Owning the equipment also means we are in control of condition, availability and hire cost.

Gala Dinner Lighting

We work in stately homes, hotels, exhibition centres, arenas and private residences. From Concorde Conference Centre in Manchester, to Porchester Hall in London to the ACC in Liverpool each event space presents its own opportunities – and challenges! Your package will include spotlights for the stage area, so everyone on stage can be seen clearly by your audience. You may also want mood lighting which can totally transform the ambiance of any room. Add the ‘wow factor’ with intelligent effect lighting which can be used as ‘eye candy’ during guest entry or during entertainment. Our lighting packages can be used to subtly enhance, or completely transform your event space, creating the beautiful backdrop you want for your event.

Gala Dinner Staging

Our range of stock staging hire solutions fit all budgets. From simple but professional backdrops, to custom made bespoke stage sets incorporating projection screens and LED video walls. We have designed staging for a wide range of Gala Dinner styles. We have created clean, crisp corporate solutions for pharmaceutical companies. And in contrast, a fun, circus-themed staging with custom props and printed graphics to match.

Content & Graphics

Our in house design team can help you with custom slideshow design and video production, as well as sourcing any specific music requests, playlists or ‘stings’. These will be thoroughly tested in our design studio prior to the event to ensure things run perfectly on the night.

Event Design

By following our tried and tested process your HAV Project Manager will take your plan, your vision and use the above tools to make it a reality. Our goal is to engage your audience, create a ‘wow factor’ and deliver an entertaining, memorable, seamless and professional event. All you need is our skills and your imagination.

Filming & Video Creation

You will be putting a lot into your Gala Dinner, so why not record it? We can film your event in HD or 4k, as well as live feed to any on site screens. Post event, HAV will supply footage that can be used across multiple media platforms. Our in house post production team will produce slick edits, company films and show reels, ideal for online video advertising.
