Hire Requirements/Terms and Conditions


On-site parking is required so that the Operator can safely unload & reload the hired product from the vehicle. Parking close to the set-up location entrance would be ideal but where this is not possible, the Operator can unload and reload at the venue entrance, and park elsewhere onsite in the interim.

Light Snack for our Operator(s)

It usually takes an hour to set the booth up, and then an hour to dismantle it. Together with the set-up, dismantling, running the event, and travelling, it can often be a 7-hour event for our Booth Operator(s). With this in mind, we ask that our Operator(s) are provided with a light snack. If this is not possible, then please do let us know upon booking so that we can advise them to take a packed lunch.

Table Requirements

We require a 6ft trestle table to be provided for the props to be laid out on.


Please note that our Hired Products are for indoor use only, and must be set up on an even, stable, weather proof surface.

Our Photo Booths measure 1.23m in depth, 3 metres in length and just over 2 metres in height.

Room for Queuing

Our Photo Booths are so much fun so often there are people queuing to use them. With this in mind, please ensure there is space for people to queue, enter and leave the hired product area when allocating us a space at the venue.


It goes without saying that our products require electricity to run so please ensure we have access to a working plug in close proximity to their allocated location.

Hire Requirements

These Terms & Conditions set out an agreement between the Hire Provider (Showtime Event Hire) and the Hirer (the person, organisation or company booking the equipment for hire from the Hire Provider).

Upon booking (either verbally or electronically), it is deemed that the Hirer has read, fully understood, and agreed to the Hire Providers Terms & Conditions.

Equipment consists of any item of hire, including props. All equipment remains, at all times, the property of Showtime Event Hire. All our equipment is for indoor use only in a weatherproof area on dry, level, hard surface flooring/ground.

In the event of the Hire Provider being unable to attend your event due to reasons beyond their control such as (but not limited to) adverse weather conditions, road closures, vehicle breakdown, illness, death, or equipment failure, the Hire Provider’s liability will be limited to refunding all of monies already paid by Hirer to Hire Provider for that service.

Photo Booth Hire

Photo Booth Hire Delivery & Collection is free up to 30 miles. Every mile thereafter will be charged at a rate of £2 per mile.

Package prices are priced for hire up to and including midnight. Post-midnight hire is at the discretion of the Hire Provider and, if approved, will incur additional hire charges.

On receipt of a £50 deposit, Showtime Event Hire will provide a Photo Booth for your event. The balance of this hire is payable by BACS or cheque 21 working days before your event, or may be paid via cleared funds at the start of your event.

The operator will not operate the booth until payment has been made in full. If hiring both a Photo Booth & LED Letters, a deposit of £100 is required.

Photo Booth Hire time is the length of actual time outlined on your chosen hire package, plus any additional hours pre-ordered and pre-paid for.
Unless otherwise agreed, the booth will print one picture for your photo album.

Guests will receive the number of photos outlined in your chosen hire package. Guests may use the booth as many times as they like within the hire period.

Your guests can upload their pictures to Facebook in real time, but this is subject to wifi connectivity / availability at the event.

Please request this service in advance if required.
Whilst we encourage the fun use of the booth, if we feel that the booth is not being treated in a respectful manner we will ask the guest(s) involved to leave the booth, and they will not be permitted to re-enter.

We will not accept any threatening behaviour. If this occurs, we will stop the use of the booth and dismantle with no refund.
Smoking, food and beverages are not permitted in the Photo Booth at any time.

Any damage / loss to the Hire Providers equipment through misuse, negligence, abuse or theft by the Hirer, their guests, or affiliates, becomes the responsibility of the Hirer. The Hirer shall bear the cost of any such repair. In the event that the equipment becomes damaged beyond repair, the Hirer shall bear the replacement cost, and any additional cost as a result of affected future hire.

In the unlikely event of a technical problem with the Photo Booth, or in any event beyond our control which renders the Photo Booth unusable, a refund will be given pro rata to any time lost.

Images taken by our Booths may be used by us to assist with promoting our services. This may include printed publications as well as on-line images. The Hire Provider owns all copyright on any image taken by our Booths.


Irrespective of when a cancellation is made, the £50 deposit is non-refundable.

If a cancellation is made:

2 – 4 weeks prior to the event date; 75% of the total agreed price becomes payable.

Under 2 weeks prior to the event date; 100% of the agreed price becomes payable.
