About Creao Studio

Based in High Harrogate, North Yorkshire, we bring 30+ years of audio, video, media and art’s experience to the table.

CREAO (short for Creative Arts Organisation) is owned by Allan Smyth who has worked in the AV, arts and entertainment industry for 30+ years, the addition of CREAO to his existing AV hire and installation business ensures you get best practice service and kit in an informal but organised environment.
