Ardent works with the £6bn UK events industry from first planning to the final curtain and beyond, to ensure that every event runs smoothly and safely.

From long established music festivals to one off sporting fixtures, from fun local charity days to important national events, Ardent are on hand to help both logistically, in the intricate planning stages, and on location at the event itself.

We can supply a wide range of events equipment, from lighting rigs to ground cover protective mats, as well as mobile accommodation units to look after staff and security in style. We can also help you to get everything else in place, with a huge range of telehandlers and forklifts, cherry pickers and scissor lifts to move staging, seating and sets.

There are no second chances with events work, so you need a team that you can trust to deliver on time and on budget. Ardent will work with you, rather than for you, developing a real relationship that can withstand the fluctuating fortunes that inevitably challenge any big event. And while you can count on our time-critical services to be ready when the audience arrives, you can also rest assured that we will never cut corners to get there.

We know that safety is non-negotiable, and provide full training in our hire equipment to ensure that everyone involved shares that view.

The events industry performs better with Ardent – job done
