Celebrating many years of service

our story

Since 2008, Silverback has delivered a premier event crew hire service that is distinct, reliable and professional. We are proud that for well over a decade our service has been consistent; the Silverback brand is one that is held in high regard within the events industry. Our approach is what separates Silverback from other crewing companies; each crew booking is met by someone who will personally deal with your request from start to finish. No matter where your event is, there are professionals who will be happy to discuss all aspects of your event. Relationships are everything.

who we support

The natural habitat for a Silverback is in the events world; gala dinners, exhibitions, award ceremonies, film sets and TV studios, retail premises, fashion shows and anywhere else an extra pair of conscientious, experienced, confident, and capable pair of hands are needed.

Some clients only require one Silverback, others require over a hundred. No matter if your event is short and small or you are planning to take over a a large event space for a longer period, you can trust us to provide the crew you need, supported by a management team that are committed and flexible to your requirements.

working on the biggest events in the industry

Corporate Events are at our core and we are well recognised for this. Silverbacks are commonly found at ExCeL London, NEC Birmingham, Olympia London, SEC Glasgow, EICC Edinburgh and Manchester Central, alongside numerous prestigious hotels and event spaces throughout the country. We have assisted some very identifiable and international brands to activate their products on a large scale including Nike, Coca Cola, LUSH, Adidas, and Red Bull to name but a few. The relationships we have formed directly with these companies has led to ourselves being their preferred event crew supplier; something we are extremely proud of.

Silverback Gorillas are an incredible species, with a name that conjures up a thoughts of strength, intelligence, family, rare and social. We are grateful to be able to borrow the Silverback name; it has done us well to say the least and we try to live up to the name.

I am so pleased to have had your guys on site today. They were very professional, and no job was too big or too small. They only stopped occasionally when I asked them to, as I felt they must need a break/drink but if I didn’t ask, I think they would have just carried on…… They were fantastic and couldn’t have been more helpful.”
