Equipment for hire

We are very grateful to the brilliant Essex Community Initiative Fund who have enabled us to invest in some essential equipment.

When we are not using it, any Essex-based musical group, charity or resident can borrow any of our equipment or music, free of charge. We will ask for a deposit equivalent to the cost of the items being loaned, which we will return in full if the equipment is returned to us in the same condition as we lent it. The organisation borrowing the equipment will be responsible for collecting, unpacking, mounting, packing up and returning the equipment to us in the same condition.

Please email to request a loan.
