The Cause? That’s a strange name?

The Dictionary says;

“A person or thing that gives rise to an action,
Reasonable grounds for doing, thinking or feeling something,
A principle, aim or movement that, because of deep commitment, one is prepared to defend or advocate.”

Well we think it sums us up pretty well.

How much Public Liability has The Cause?

What is the history of The Cause?

The Cause was created in 1982 in Bridlington on the Yorkshire East coast.

It was primarily a public address hire business, facilitating to the local bands of the time.  The need for rehearsal space and recording facilities lead in a move to York, and an expansion to Sheffield.  By 2004 The Cause was well established over the country providing our clients with the fuss free service they have come to rely on time after time.
