We create meaningful memories.

James Dean Events are a family owned, independent event hire and management business.

Life is full of ups and downs for all of us, and we want to help make more of your time a good time.

We do this by putting on family festivals and providing our equipment and services to event organisers across the UK.


Always moving forward

Established in 2012 with a single festival in Derbyshire, we now provide a full spectrum of products and services for the events industry.

We still love putting on festivals though: only now we have 7 a year instead of 1! From the largest fireworks display in the UK, to the celeb-packed 80s and 90s festival, we’re driven forward by a hunger for excellence.

Over 100,000 people attended an event we helped to organise last year as we continue towards our vision of giving a million people memories that last a lifetime.

Humble beginnings

We began all the way back in 2012 when we launched our first festival.

2013 First Sausage & Cider Festival

Bangers and apples

2013 saw the birth of our Sausage and Cider Festival – which we have now taken all around the UK.

2017 A hire state

Event essentials

Fast forward to 2017, and we wanted to bring our experience, knowledge and honest approach to help businesses put on incredible events.

2017 Tipis, gelato and fizz

Sleeping, eating & drinking

In addition to our festivals, hire and management services, we are now offering luxury glamping experiences and mobile bars, through our partner companies Tipis for Weddings and Bar Basso.

Our Core Values

We go to great lengths to ensure our values remain central to the way we go about doing business we we continue to grow.

Provide excellent service

Our skilled staff will stop at nothing to ensure that each and every person attending our events or your events leaves with a fuzzy and warm feeling inside.

Do the right thing

We put the safety, well-being and sustainability above all else. We give out free bottled water and free sun cream to all that attend our festivals. We have a zero landfill policy for our events.

Be inclusive

We want your audience, and ours to be able to afford to get out and experience all the world has to offer.  Our range of products and services have been designed to be accessible to everyone: and that includes having a pricing policy that’s affordable for all!
