Our wedding day was absolutely perfect in every way. It was beautiful, everything ran smoothly and was well timed and it was an unforgettable day. We, along with our guests, have not stopped talking about it since and some of our guests have commented on how it's the best wedding they've ever been to and one they will remember forever. Our wedding was postponed by a year due to covid and throughout all of this, qoko continued to be not only professional but extremely positive and reassuring & when the day came the lights, dance floor and equipment was perfect & more than I ever expected.
Great experience renting from Qoko. Super responsive. The wedding lighting looked just incurable and really set the marquee off.
The whole team were extremely helpful in helping me select the best lighting and speaker options for my wedding. Delivery and setup were smooth even with a difficult location & load in, I would highly recommend!
Anyone looking for a wedding equipment hire company in Sussex - we cannot recommend Qoko events enough! From our very first email they were just incredible! They are so professional but are also full of love, energy and enthusiasm for what they do. They get to know you and are able to plan the wedding production you've always dreamed of with extra detail and surprises that you also hadn't thought of.
Kerry and her team were absolutely wonderful. I contacted Qoko only two days before my event needing a speaker system for outdoors. Kerry was so helpful with arranging the delivery of the speaker and really quick with replying to my stressed calls and messages! Thank you so much!
Unbelievable service from Qoko! Kerry was very helpful with recommending equipment, processing my initial and arranging delivery. My event was then postponed and there was no issues at all in pushing my hire date back when reorganised. Completely hassle free, great communication, fantastic service! Definitely, recommend.
At QOKO Events, we differentiate ourselves by offering you everything you need for your private event under one roof. There's no need to speak to several outfits to hire a range of lights, sound systems, or stages. Instead, once you have booked your venue, you can come straight to us with your equipment requirements, and we'll handle the rest.
We know from experience that this can be a godsend for event organisers trying to bring together multiple separate production elements together to pull off a successful occasion.
Functions such as music events, festivals, weddings, and conferences, require meticulous planning. With QOKO Events, all you have to do is pick out the equipment you need from our extensive list of menu items, and we will have a quote returned to you within hours.
However, even though we are large enough to provide all-encompassing event solutions, our team still operates in the same way as smaller companies, offering a personal touch regardless of the specific hire service you choose. In other words, QOKO Events is large enough to cope but small enough to care.
QOKO Events go above and beyond traditional event equipment hire services by offering an all-inclusive event production service. We don't leave our clients wondering how to set up or use the equipment, nor do we leave them hanging if they need additional support during the event to ensure all technical elements run smoothly.
We are one of the only companies in this region that can offer lighting technicians, sound engineers, stage crews, and even in-house designers who all come together to create a cohesive unit that won't settle until we have helped you pull off the perfect event.
Our team will also be on hand to give advice regarding your event, help you squeeze more out of your production budget, and highlight items that you might not have yet given any thought to, such as power sources.
So if you are hosting a private event in the South East, QOKO Events should be your first port of call. Feel free to read on to learn more about some of our primary event production services.
Most private events benefit from hiring a PA system. Whether you need an extensive sound system for your wedding band or simply need a couple of high-performance speakers for your garden party, QOKO Events has an enormous range of sound equipment from which you can create your perfect set-up.
Although it's impossible to list all of the specific pieces of the sound equipment we stock, it's worth mentioning that our inventory includes everything you would expect of a leading event production company. That includes both active and passive PA speakers, stage monitors, amplifiers, wired and wireless microphones, you name it. We also have advanced sound solutions, such as line arrays and in-ear monitors, should your chosen performers request them.
When it comes to the brand names that we stock, we only invest in the best of the best. Our clients can enjoy leading audio brand names such as Shure, d&b audiotechnik, Martin & Robe lighting to Midas mixing consoles. Better still, we rotate our sound equipment out of stock as soon as it reaches three years of service. Once that mark has been surpassed, we reinvest our earnings into the latest editions to ensure that our equipment quality cannot be matched.
QOKO Events can also be on hand to take care of on-site sound duties should you need someone there in person to oversee the key audio elements of your event. For instance, if you want a sound engineer around to mix the live bands you have hired for the acts booked for the tribute night at your hotel, we can supply highly skilled and incredibly experienced team members to guarantee that everything goes off without a hitch.
There are very few event production companies that can match the sheer variety of our sound gear, and no other outfit matches our commitment to maintenance and servicing. It's our determination to go above and beyond that ensures we help you deliver incredible results to your audience every single time.
Most events that use professional sound equipment also rely upon event lighting hire services. By investing in the right lighting fixtures, you can totally transform the look and feel of your venue. We have a multitude of options for you to choose from, each serving a different purpose.
For instance, we stock wireless LED uplighters that are an excellent choice for mood lighting at weddings, as are "intelligent" moving head lights. We also stock a complete selection of stage lighting fixtures for live musical and theatrical performances. Our range of functional lights is popular with event organisers putting on events similar to exhibitions or conferences, while our disco lights and lasers are out on hire most weekends to weddings and birthday parties taking place across Sussex.
But our lighting expertise at QOKO Events extends far beyond an exemplary range of equipment. Our team is well-versed in planning, designing, and executing engaging and attractive light shows for events of all shapes and sizes. They have overseen major light shows for events taking place at the O2 Arena, for example.
However, even if you don't need that level of service, our professional lighting technicians will be available during installation to talk you through any areas of concern and walk you through operations for programmable lights.
Lastly, we specialise in supplying unique lighting solutions, such as custom gobos, textured lighting, wedding monograms, and other similar special effects. Gobos and monograms offer brides and grooms the chance to design a custom logo, motif, or even literally put their name up in lights to commemorate what is one of the most special days of your life. By contrast, textured lighting creates projects patterns around your venue, such as snowflakes or autumnal leaves.
In other words, no matter your lighting requirements, QOKO Events has you covered.
All occasions, from small private events to large-scale festivals, require some degree of event production. Given the sheer breadth and depth of our event services, we are proud to be one of the only companies in the Sussex area to offer all-inclusive event production solutions.
If you are unfamiliar with the term event production, it refers to every technical element you need to successfully pull off your event. For example, if you are planning a Sussex wedding ceremony and reception at one of its many country houses or estates, then you are going to need to hire several disparate items to ensure you enjoy the perfect celebration.
Everything from your tiered wedding stage to your live band's sound requirements will be included. And don't forget other elements that you might not consider "technical", such as tables, chairs, and even the cutlery your guests will use to eat. In essence, event production covers everything that isn't decorative or stylist in nature (barring the lights). So not the flowers, cake, or dress in the case of a wedding.
Here at QOKO Events, we can supply all elements of an event's production requirements with ease. It doesn't matter if you need an outdoor marquee in addition to all of the usual elements of a party or private celebration. We can supply it all to you for one straightforward, all-inclusive price.
The advantages of organising your event in this manner are almost endless. You only have to deal with one outfit for all event production items, you only have to accommodate one contractor working on-site, and you free yourself up to work on organising other vital aspects of your occasion.
Another speciality for QOKO Events is screen hire. It's our pleasure to let you know that we can supply you with pretty much any type, size, or shape of screen you require.
Our screen hire services cover the full spectrum of audio visual (AV) technology. For instance, if you are hosting a private function at a local hotel and you need a projector and screen, we can help. By the same token, we have been helping conferences, exhibitions, and music festivals with TV screens, and more recently, giant LED video walls for well over a decade now.
For smaller events, we can supply enormous 4K HD TV screens that display video content in the sharpest resolution currently available, and we can hire out screen and projector combos if you are planning on having a home cinema night or want to cycle through a slideshow of those wedding photos with family.
The spec of the LED screens QOKO Events is also top-notch. We stock LED video wall panels in 3.9mm pixel pitch, of the smallest screen pitches on the market today. What that means in practice for event organisers is that audience members can be stood or sat as little as a few metres away without being able to see the gaps in between the LED nodes.
There are many uses for these specialist screens, including drive-in outdoor cinema screens, broadcasting popular sporting events, and they can play a vital role in the performances of live music acts. At QOKO Events, our LED screen hire service includes all of the supporting infrastructure, such as ground supports, staging, truss structures, and anything else you may require to make your screen hire look the part.
QOKO Events stock the most staging equipment of any company based in the region. While we are unmatched in the way of staging volume, we also differentiate ourselves by offering an in-house design team that can design and manufacture stages or sets to your specifications.
For weddings, we often provide tiered stages with custom backdrops and stage drapes. Wedding planners and happy couples sometimes ask us to design a bespoke stage to mark the occasion. This is either because the couple wants something extravagant to provide a focal point for proceedings or because the nature of the venue dictates that traditional staging wouldn't be viable. No matter the reason, as one of the only events companies in Sussex with design and manufacturing abilities, we are always high on the list of people to contact.
Our range of stages covers both indoor and outdoor events. We have mobile stage hire options that take less than a few hours to set up and can provide a robust platform for a live band at a local event with up to 500 people in attendance. We also have giant festival stages (with a range of different designs) that can cater to large-cap festivals with a crowd of 10,000+ individuals.
Over our decades of operation, we have also developed expertise within niche areas, such as catwalk stages, conference sets, car display ramps, and even clear/perspex staging. The latter is an option if you want to build a stage over a swimming pool, for example. They are certainly not our cheapest staging option. However, there is nothing more dramatic than having one of these stages at a wedding or a birthday party.
At QOKO Events, we are your one-stop shop for all of your event equipment requirements. From disco lights to stages, sound systems, special effects, and everything in between, we are here for you Sussex, Surrey, or Kent event. We pride ourselves on offering all-inclusive solutions with straightforward prices (inclusive of VAT etc.) and providing everything you need with a personal touch.
If you would like help with hiring the equipment you need for your next event taking place anywhere in the South East, then make sure to give our friendly team a call.

As you can imagine this highly depends on what you are looking to hire & the scare of the production.
