A small selection of our work

A forward thinking company with 20 years experience

Core Event Hire, Oxford, was born many years ago when two very young but experienced wedding DJ’s Andrew & Chris decided to create ACDisco hence the name! Moving on from this Chris went into full time work within the audio visual industry to gain knowledge on rigging, technical spec’s, creation and even repairs and servicing. Andrew went on to create a successful electrical engineering company.


ACDisco was reborn when Chris, his knowledge and existing equipment decided to team up with another friend, from then on the small business grew into the company it became after 15 years of great service.


The existing company soon outgrew it’s name and what with not forgetting it’s routes but also supplying to the prestigious venues such as the Ashmolean Museum, Natural History Museum, Oxford Uni, Bodleian Library, Christchurch College to name a few and high profile clients which at times have even included royalty!


Therefore after over 20 years experience in the industry Core Event Hire was born.
