The University of Hertfordshire, located just 20 minutes outside of London by train. Immersed in history it is a vibrant and diverse campus based university. On its way to being internationally renowned as the UK’s leading business-facing university. It houses a student faculty of 25,000 students a year and boasts a £38m entertainment venue.

Each year we are proud to be a part of the Forum Hertfordshire’s annual Summer Ball Event for the Hertfordshire Students Union. Transforming the venue into a carnival in line with this years theme; Summer Cirque.


With an outside carnival stage and 4 indoor spaces, vortex was on hand to deliver all Audio Visuals for the stunning displays around this years theme.

The carnival tent outside, was a blank space that required all AV equipment to be provided by vortex as well as the rigging and de-rigging of the space.

The four indoors spaces required different additional equipment. The main stage already housed an LED wall, however for the event of the year we provided additional panels to fill up the stage. Additionally radio microphones and truss equipment to outfit to the venue.


Sound engineers and lighting technicians were provided by Vortex events as support for the performing guests. Load in and Load out crew, and front of house engineers.
