Solar Lighting hire and sales


Black Bear Events is one of the few event companies to offer affordable solar and battery powered lighting for all types of event applications. With years of experience in alternative technologies, we are able to bring our expertise to the events industry in a unique way. We can provide equipment from stage lighting to area lighting for working spaces, and compact units for remote applications such as lighting festival gates and steward points. Our hire equipment is delivered and installed on your site by our technicians, or, in the case of simple worklight systems, dry hire is available.

We also manufacture and sell systems to meet your requirements. Our simple yet effective market traders lighting systems will transform your stall and extend trading hours at festivals without the noise or pollution of a generator or the expense of a site power supply. They are 12volt systems, so are exempt from PAT testing.

"After using your lighting setup I must say that it is just brilliant. I used it in my 20'x20' and it was like daylight in there. Having now bought a 30'x45' I was expecting to have to buy more lights but as you quite rightly advised me I didn't need as many lights in the 20x20 but I'm pleased I did as they are spot on in the new big tent. With the extension leads I am able to light up my smaller living tent too !! I would be amazed if more people don't try your lighting as they will be more than impressed I'm sure."

"I have used the lighting at several shows, not only do they last all weekend, they are simple to use and store. For the first time I was able to access the store at the back of my tent, without having to juggle torches & stock. Thoroughly recommended!"
