The Henley Literary Festival



And now for something completely different!

The brief seemed so simple when they came to us four years ago, “No customer complaints!” As that is our mantra, we understood completely. But it seemed the organisers of this high-profile event, wanted to go the extra mile for their paying customers and literary guests.

The Henley Literary Festival is in fact a series of events running over seven days in late September.

There are six large venues in the small market town with multiple performances each day and a couple of pop up events along the way. Each of the shows lasts about an hour or so, and it is essential all eyes and ears are on the main attraction, with no hitches or glitches so the AV had to be perfect. To be sure, we fielded four full-time technicians across the events so that there was always a professional on hand to make lights, projectors and sound run like clockwork.

And we must be doing something right because we are already booked again for next year – five in a row.

The brief may have seemed simple to ITM but we had done five years of the literary festival and sound and AV were the biggest complaints we got. We changed different production suppliers and nothing worked. We were recommended ITM and we have never looked back. The year they did it we had no complaints and the most wonderful sound and tech in all venues; it was more than we could have asked for. Our event is all about people talking about their books; without good sound, we are nothing, and with ITM it enables us to get this completely right
