If you’ve partied in Jersey, then you’ll no doubt have had Delta help you do it.
The local event production company celebrated its 25th birthday last month, reflecting on its development from humble beginnings (above) to become the go-to firm for any large-scale event production in the islands.
The business’ origins started in the early nineties, supplying sound and lighting equipment from a chicken shed operation in Trinity. Back then, Delta’s main focus was supplying PA and lighting equipment to the Channel Islands’ burgeoning rave scene with the popular ‘Inn on the Park’ raves, in addition to regular rave gigs at Beau Sejour in Guernsey.
The business officially launched in Jersey back in 1994 with a team of three, comprising founders Cristin Bouchet and Lloyd Sawyer and Dave Wilson, who sadly passed away in 2001. Over the last 15 years, the local event market across both islands has grown substantially, with Delta diversifying and expanding its service offering to meet the growing demand for large-scale corporate summer and Christmas parties, in addition to the booming wedding and festival markets, adding Guernsey 10 years ago.
Today, Delta boasts a 20-strong team across both islands and occupies four vast warehouses to house the latest technical equipment, staging, decorations and props.
Simon Gasston, Managing Director at Delta Events said: “It’s incredible to be celebrating such a milestone in Delta’s history. From very modest beginnings in Jersey, the business has gone from strength-to-strength and we’re so proud of the reputation we’ve garnered as a leading events production specialist across both Jersey and Guernsey’.
