Health and Safety
In the event of fire, flooding, public disturbance, terrorist activity or any other threat to the public, the DJ will act responsibly and in good faith but will not be held responsible to evacuate any venue or building where he is present and / or working within, unless the fire regulations for the venue specify otherwise. In this situation this would usually incur a vocal announcement which the DJ would undertake.
The client will allow suitable time for the installation and dismantling and removal of equipment (minimum of one hour). The venue and client must also ensure that safe and adequate power is available. The DJ will ensure that any equipment that requires connection to a power source is electrically safe and conforms to the HSE EAW Act 1989, and any amendments thereafter.
If you are booking additional entertainment (e.g. singer, comedian, band etc) as well as hiring a DJ, please consider and think about the amount of space available and where the client will put the audio equipment. Speaker location is usually best if it is no greater than 10 meters either side from the position of the presenter. If you require additional entertainment services, we’d be happy to discuss your requirements.
The DJ also reserves the right to refuse to continue any event prior to the start should there not be sufficient floor space to allow the audio / lighting equipment to be assembled safely.
The DJ reserves the right to substitute alternative entertainment should uncontrollable circumstances dictate the need to do so.
The DJ will be responsible for producing certificates of Public Liability Insurance and P.A.T. Testing carried out on our equipment.
We will not be responsible for any damage or loss to private or public property caused by invited guests or members of the public.
As the DJ works very unsociable hours, we ask if non-alcoholic drinks could be supplied. Please do not offer alcoholic drinks whilst our staff are on the venue’s premises.

The DJ is not responsible if the venue is found to be in breach of the terms of their license.
