Hello from Kev
KSPS is the sole trading venture by myself, Kev Stratton. I have over 25 years experience in a wide range of theatrical productions and events, both off and even on stage. I'm a Somerset native and enjoy working closely with local professionals and community groups alike, and have built a strong reputation with my professional body of work.
I also subcontract work from other individuals and organisations (and visa-versa) to provide services to the industry.
I have a young family based here and when not on production enjoy a wide range of activities including sport, endurance running and popular culture.
Previously I have undertaken roles of:
Technical Instructor of Production Arts (Level 3 & 4)
Technical Manager (Theatre)
Media, Film and Creative Arts Technician
35mm Cinema Projection and Management
Lead Singer (Covers band)
Acting and radio voice work.
Emergency First Aid
Fire Safety Awareness & Fire Marshal
Portable Appliance Testing PAT Certified
IOSH Managing Health & Safety
Working At Height, COSHH, Manual Handling Awareness
Full UK Driving License (1998)
DBS Checked & Certified
Public Liability Insured for £10,000,000
Thoughts on Theatre & Events
An event is something to be experience by a wide range of people, often with whom you'll have no direct connection with - yet, anyone running or involved in an event, needs to make connection.
As a "creative", a technician, or a performer, it's our job to do just that.
That's my passion. Coupled with a strong grounding in safety, compliance and professionalism, without which, you are always running the risk of falling short, or worse.
I truly believe it is possible to span both the practical and creative aspects of our industry, and, when done well - make a real connection. That's why I do what I do, work the way I work and believe in the power of creative arts and events.
If you think your event could do with experienced technical and production support, I'd love to chat, however crazy the proposal might be! Just ask me about cliffs, trains, abandoned factories and stages filled with water...
