Sound system hire Skipton, north Yorkshire.

Skipton / Ilkley / Harrogate

PA system hire

I hire PA sound systems suitable for small to medium sized events (up to 500 people) such as:

  • Weddings
  • Private parties
  • Gala’s
  • Live bands
  • DJ’s
  • Outdoor parties & events
  • Corporate events
  • Company meetings
  • Funerals

If you are putting on an event that requires a PA system, I can help.

I supply, deliver & setup (plus engineer & mix if required) high quality PA systems, ideal for small/medium sized venues & halls. Using a decent quality PA system & microphones provides much higher quality music for your event & ensures that everyone in attendance can hear & engage with any spoken message being conveyed.

The PA & any other hired equipment will be delivered to the venue, setup & sound checked, with a quick demo on how to use it & how to plug in any of your own music playback equipment you might wish to use.

I am based in Skipton & can deliver within a 25 mile radius including: Gargrave, Ilkley, Harrogate, Keighley, Otley & south Yorkshire Dales etc.

What can I plug into the PA?

A mixing desk is designed to take signals from microphones, mp3 music players, laptops, phones & musical instruments. Please check with us before connecting a device which you are unsure about as it might damage the equipment.

All hired mixing desks comes with Bluetooth inputs so you can stream loud & quality music wirelessly, directly to your audience from your laptop, tablet or phone.

Can I have a loud party just from my phone, laptop or tablet?

Yes! But if you intend to use a mobile as your primary music source, it’s probably best to put it into airplane mode, so that any phone calls, or text / WhatsApp messages aren’t sent through the PA.

We are getting married in the Yorkshire Dales, can you supply a PA system for speeches & so we can play our own music?

Yes! I hire PA systems for the growing Yorkshire Dales weddings industry & over the years have hired sound systems to most of the leading local wedding venues including:

  • Broughton Hall
  • Eden at Broughton
  • East Riddlesden Hall
  • Falcon Manor
  • Kilnsey Park Estate & Kilnsey Crag
  • Ripley Castle
  • The Priests House, Barden
  • The Sun Pavilion, Harrogate
  • The Devonshire Arms, Bolton Abbey
  • Thornton Hall
  • Utopia at Broughton

Can I dismantle or move the PA

No. dismantling or moving the pa system can only be done by us, it invalidates our insurance & we have had issues in the past where a PA system that has been moved has been connected up incorrectly. You may lose your deposit if any hired sound equipment is damaged.

Will you operate the PA for us?

Yes! As well as having great ears, I am calm & discrete.

Can you supply bigger PA systems?

I can supply PA systems 20KW & above with a full sound team, contact me for details.

What they say about me


The sound was amazing, thanks.

Jake provided live sound for our Women in business event in Harrogate. Despite a tight schedule & quick changeover of guest speakers, the sound out front was seamless. Jake is a cool, calm professional & I couldn’t recommend him highly enough.


Thank you so much for today. Your system was perfect!! You were brill. Loads of folk were also saying how great it all sounded.
