Although the ES Lighting team is small, we pride ourselves on being able to deliver any size event, no matter how big or small. We are passionate about providing our clients with a service that exceeds expectations. 

In addition, we have a carefully selected team of freelancers that we work with on a regular basis.


Simon is the backbone of the company and has over 20 years of experience designing, running and installing lighting and sound rigs. From theatre productions, garden parties, weddings and festivals, Simon will always give 100% to make every event the best it can be.


Although not seen on installs that often, Hazel is always happy to be involved when required. She manages to day to day admin, accounts, marketing and anything else necessary to ensure the smooth running of the business.


Our Warehouse Manager, who keeps our products in tip top condition. 


ES Lighting Hire Ltd was formed in 2007 and was originally the hire department of Essential Supplies. Due to the increasing success of the department, it was decided to set it up as company. At the same time, it was decided to relocate from Cornwall to Hampshire to be able to cover the whole of the South of England more easily. 

We have worked in many locations around the country and Europe including London, Liverpool, Edinburgh, Plymouth, Cardiff, Paris and Florence.

The company has been in Up Nateley, between Basingstoke and Hook since 2019. Before that, we were in Rotherwick for 8 years. The ES Lighting team started by providing lighting and power in marquees for weddings and parties. Over the years we have expanded our services to provide a complete electrical equipment package for all events in all venues.

Our mission is to provide a friendly yet professional service. We always provide a bespoke design to match your requirements.


The ES Lighting team have been involved with many events during this time. From small private garden parties, concerts, weddings, graduations, corporate events and stage productions. In addition, food, beer and music festivals.

Each job is given the same attention to detail and is designed from scratch. This, therefore, gives a completely bespoke solution to your requirements. In addition, we can provide marquees, generators, staging and full band sound equipment using our approved supplier’s list.

Our products are fully tested before being sent out and checked thoroughly on return. This is in addition to regular PAT testing, servicing and maintenance checks. Installations are completed and signed off to BS7909 requirements.

Copies of our Public Liability Insurance, Risk Assessments and Method Statements are available upon request. We also now provide a Covid-19 Risk Assessment.

For kit only hires, spare lamps are provided when applicable for extra peace of mind. Full set up instructions are also provided.
