Welcome to Charity Shop DJ Productions
We make parties with purpose.
From Village Green to the Royal Festival Hall - We believe the party is an artform; a platform for creative exchange and collective experience.
The Party has the power to break down barriers - to connect, celebrate and inspire - and act as a catalyst for change.
The Art of Partying
The Charity Shop DJ Manifesto:
Alone We Wobble. Together We Rock.
We work with festivals and producers, venues and locations, local, national and international authorities, charities, museums and private companies.
Look through this site to see examples of our national and international work since 2006.
Our events are shaped by partner aspiration, and driven by the creative energy of consensus, planning, and professional delivery.
" To make a big event at the Southbank work you need collaborators who just get on there and deliver something fantastic. Charity Shop DJ do it every time " Wayne Hemingway MBE.
At the heart of Charity Shop DJ is the celebration of people, space, and community.
" What distinguishes Charity Shop DJ and transcends them from being a good company to a great company is that everything they do has a very firm, fully thought out ideological basis. They know what they are doing, and why they are doing it. And the good that can come of their creative endeavour. " Pete Meakin, Producer, Derby LIVE.
