A bit about us…

Basic Monkey Limited was created in 2006 by James Cooksey to bring fresh ideas and new applications of the latest technology to the events industry.

After time in the industry as a freelance technician, James realised the only way to have true freedom to develop new ideas would be to create a new company and brand. Whilst we have grown over time our goals have stayed the same:

  1. Support trade clients with their productions, providing technical support, equipment, design and consultancy.

  2. Bring new ideas and ‘breaking the mould’ events to private and corporate clients.

Basic Monkey is a flexible business allowing us to take on as much or as little involvement in your event as you like. From crewing/operating, through concept/design, up to full production management.

We can provide the very latest in lighting, sound and video in house; working in homes, gardens, marquees, event suites, hotels, outdoors, conference centres, arenas and on the road. We can turn any venue into your venue, making us truly adaptable to your requirements.
