"The remote location meant that we had to be totally self-sufficient. We only had one panic call to the UK, when a local supplier failed to deliver over 2000sq.m of black drape. Acre Jean rose to the challenge and with assistance from Rockit Cargo, a whole set was at Heathrow three hours later, delivered to Saudi overnight and rigged the next day."
Roger Barrett - Star Hire

"...the final figure for the amount we raised at the recent 'Saturday Night Fever' dance to raise money for the Marie Curie Cancer Care and Action against Breast Cancer...was in the region of 3300. That makes it the most successful dinner dance event we have ever put on. The success of the evening was partly due to the atmosphere we were able to create...this was largely due to the the star cloths and drapes you so kindly lent us...So for your generosity and help with this event, thank you."
David Tock

"I write to thank you for your advice and assistance regarding the supply of stage curtains. Following their speedy despatch, the curtains were installed in the recent period and have since been admired by Members of the Town Council and by users of the hall alike. The quality of the product, and indeed the protective bags, were well appreciated. If you wish to use my name as a reference for prospective customers, I would be pleased to oblige."
