“The sound crew at the Bacon Theatre gave us the flexibility we needed for our live music film score, working with both our own gear and the house equipment. We were able to concentrate on the music knowing that the technical aspect was confidently taken care of. We’d definitely recommend working with them however non-standard and off the wall your tech rider is.”

Stef, Minima Music

“Thank you for providing PA, lighting and engineers for the Tom Gates concert last Sunday. The communication ahead of the day was great and the equipment / expertise of the crew on the day was excellent. During the sound check everything was very well organised ahead of the band arriving and the sound during our concert was very good. We had a great time performing at the Bacon Theatre and hope to play at the venue again soon.”

Charles Morland, Tom Gates Stuff Ltd

“Just have to say you did a sterling job for us, great sound – audience members were full of praise.”

John Tonks,Voodoo Room

Sales and marketing

You are welcome to arrange your own ticket sales for events. We can certainly provide a ticket printing service at a competitive price, but to really keep us busy, why not commission us to sell your tickets using our efficient box office. We keep 10% you take the rest – it’s one less thing to worry about.

As far as marketing is concerned, a package of event listing in our seasonal brochure and display of publicity material in the foyer is par for the course, but if you could do with some marketing advice to get your event on track, we are on hand to assist you.

We would be delighted to give you a full guided tour of the theatre at a time which is convenient to you, simply call or email us and let’s get on with the show…
