Event Lighting Hire Hampshire


We are ES Lighting Hire Ltd, a lighting and power provider for the events industry. Founded in 2007 by Simon James and Simon Dinsmore to be separate entity from Essential Supplies Ltd based in Torpoint, Cornwall.

Essential Supplies Ltd was established in 1995, by Simon James specialising in Marquee and event lighting, power and other equipment. The company has grown over the years and offers a huge range of choice.

The hire department was created in 2002 to supply equipment for the Queen’s Jubilee celebrations in Cornwall. In 2004, Simon Dinsmore joined Essential Supplies as the manager for the hire department.

Due to the ongoing success and rapid expansion of the department, Simon James and Simon Dinsmore decided to develop the hire side into a company in it’s own right. So, in 2007, ES Lighting Hire was formed. Originally situated close to Basingstoke, we moved to our current location in 2011 after a company restructure.

The company restructure involved the introduction of a new director, Angela McIntosh, while Simon James has taken more of a back seat role in the company. In addition, a full time warehouse/ site foreman and administrator joined the company.

2014 and 2015 have seen further changes as we have expanded our warehouse and office staff, as well as increasing our premises, catalogue of stock and services. In 2016, the company has continued to grow and there are many exciting plans for the future.

As you can see, we have updated our website, with more changes on the way. We hope you enjoy the new format and features. Please do let us know what you think as all feedback is valued and acted upon.

ES Lighting Hire is based in Rotherwick, near Basingstoke, with excellent access for London, Thames Valley, South and South East England, the South West and the Midlands.
