Heart Essex Comment

Jane Ellis – Event Organiser for Heart Essex Radio: ”Totally Sound Events have worked with us on our Heart Essex Wedding Show for many years now – managing the stage, sound and lighting, plus event management. Darren andKim know exactly what they are doing when it comes to events and I could not imagine us running the show without them.

The stage is always up on time, the sound and lighting engineers are efficient, professional and do an exemplary job and what Kim doesn’t know about event management is not worth knowing.

The Heart Essex Wedding Show has been running for many years and has an excellent reputation. This is due, in no small part to the people we work with.

If you are organising an event then look no further than Totally Sound Events. I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending them.”
