in the beginning ...

A year into a new millennium, Peter Herbert of Newcastle Under Lyme in Staffordshire started a new chapter, one that followed a15-year prologue in technical production in the theatre and entertainments industry.  

Initially the focus was logistics and implementation of touring theatre, nationally and internationally. The plot then evolved into our first specialism – large scale site-specific production for the live events industry.

PH Productions picked up technical wizard, Russell Coppock in 2012.  Russell’s appointment enabled us to provide more complex audio visual technological services and full event management solutions. 

PH Productions embraced video production and the incredible potential of live streaming. Incorporating it into live events, virtual and hybrid conferences, stage shows, faith, community and arts-based productions, and lastly to online content creation. 

let’s start the conversation...


PH  Productions connects more than wires with sound systems and lighting rigs, speakers to delegates, live events to the internet, podcasters with digital audio audiences. PH connects people. We made it to the grand age of 21 in 2023 and over the decades we have forged long lasting relationships with clients, and a strong crew of freelancers. All experienced event professionals – a/v technicians, event managers, set designers, sound technicians, creatives, stage crew, riggers, performers and artists. Providing all the extras and supporting cast your production needs.

PH people enjoy making extraordinary events happen!
