you got no chance with £600 for 400 people...you could put a ok rig together for lets say 200 people max.....something like a berry ep2500  (like someone already said) for a bass amp,you can pick them up from £100/£150,then look out for 2 punishers or 1850 horn there is plenty of them going around manchester,you can pick them up from £200?£250 ish each if your lucky,and then some second hand  tops that you could power with your waf amp jbl or something like that .then you will need a crossover and cables so your looking at more like £700/£800..but your not far off dude, you can make a lot of noise for £800 if you use your head....you will have to consider moving everything about cos you will soon fill a car up with just one 1850 horn lol  
 
and =1 on the Genny and covering for outdoor stuff ..hope this helps

I agree with audio habit on a lot of what he's said.
The DIY option would be to see if you can find a load of (4 minimum) second hand 15/18"drivers in the for sale forum on the cheap (you'll need to find ones with appropriate T/s peramiters) and design a ported horn around them, this will need a fair amount of knowledge and expertise though and would be something to think about after spending a significant amount of time looking over the relevant forums, and learning a bit of hornresp, though theirs plenty of people willing and able to help out designing speakers (myself included) but it will be about as cheap as you can make enough bass to do that number of people.
You're a big man, but you're in bad shape. With me it's a full time job. Now behave yourself.

My two cents would be to go for a c-mark mr2650 instead of a berry ep2500 a lot more bang for your buck and pretty damn solid too with decent speaker protection, you can pick them up for about the same price as an ep2500 normally.
