Technical Services and Equipment

Sound, Light, Visuals & Staging

If you require technical equipment or support for your events anywhere within LUU and beyond then there is a dedicated technical support and production logistics team based here at LUU. We provide support for all of the events within the Union building and University Campus including the Refectory.
 
We can also provide support for your events outside of LUU. We have supported many student events off campus at venues such as the Royal Armouries, Harewood House and other clubs and venues throughout the north of England.
 
So if you are involved with organising events for your society, halls committee or are a budding student event organiser or promoter, we can support your needs. All aspects of Sound, Light, Visuals and Production Logistics can be catered for.

 

Who, What, Where?

The LUU Technical Services team can be found in the Venues office (Level -1 of the Union Building behind Old Bar).
 
We are responsible for the delivery of events such as the Summer Ball, Wax: On, Fruity, Slam Dunk Festival, Vagabondz, Damnation, Constellations and Live at Leeds and can ensure your event will be delivered with the same professional standard.
 
You can rely on our experience to help you deliver an exciting and professional event and help with everything from Sound, Lights and Visuals through to the boring stuff such as Risk Assessments, Public Liability Insurance and Method Statements – helping you to concentrate on the creative bits.

LUU Backstage Society

LUU Backstage Society are also available to help with your events, dependent on their calendar. The society will provide help for free, but all members are students so are not as readily available as the venues staff and already have a very busy schedule. For more information please view their website where there is an info pack which will answer most questions. Please read through this before any meetings with the society as many questions are answered within this pack.
