Early Days

Joe Weston-Webb

Early days – Joe was born into a wealthy upper class family of respected yarn merchants who can trace their family tree back to the 17th century, with family crests and royal warrants. He was educated privately at Bilton Grange and the famous Harrow Public School, rejected the chance to run the family hosiery business and opted to make his own way, promoting unusual events whilst building up a very successful rental company, funded by selling ice cream and hot dogs from a van and manning a goldfish stall at fairs.

Rejecting a career in the army – having represented the Royal Engineers, at National competition level in pole vaulting, he was discharged with a slipped disc and a pension, and a burning enthusiasm for off beat entertainment. He started renting sound equipment to shows, extending this into a wide ranging general entertainment rental company with sound, lighting, power distribution, furniture and dance floors, ultimately employing 40 men with a 24,000sq ft premises, and a fleet of vehicles creating stunning themed society parties and corporate hospitality events all over the U.K.
