Hawthorn is the brainchild of Martin Hawthorn, who in 1987 spotted a gap in the market for a good quality equipment hire company, staffed by knowledgeable and passionate people, to support theatres, dramatic groups, schools and colleges. With great customer service front of mind, he promptly set up shop in his garage in Leicestershire and the rest, as they say, is history.
