Theatre & The Arts

Alfie starring Adam Faith, one of our first ever lighting jobs, took us rapidly from the small stage to the West End – and we’ve never forgotten our theatrical roots.

From vision to reality...

We offer professional, educational and amateur organisations technical support for plays, musicals, ballets and operas, as well as helping creatives with audio, light, digital or sculptural installations.

We’ve worked on a huge variety of projects. To name a few:

  • ‘The Moon’ in Harris Museum Preston

  • We designed a custom suspension structure within the gallery to hide in plain sight, sympathetically displaying the artwork to the delight of the artist and audiences alike.

  • Lighting the Soyuz Capsule that carried Tim Peake back to Earth

  • We worked within strict UV levels set by museum curators to preserve the parachute material.

  • Manasamitra’s unique musical experience: Shivoham

  • We built a custom set, audio and lighting system for this artist-led organisation, producing contemporary works rooted in South Asian traditions.

How we did it: Light Night Leeds

We’ve been providing equipment, services and technicians to the UK’s biggest annual multi-arts and light festival for several years.

In that time, we’ve applied deep local knowledge, provided a unique range of skills and equipment, and helped many emerging, established and international artists present their work. Each autumn, we overcome weather, language barriers and whatever else comes our way to bring this event to over 100,000 people.

We supply:

  • Budgeting and suitability investigation support
  • Technicians to help artists install pieces
  • Dry hire equipment for venues that need additional kit
  • Bespoke audio and lighting installations operated by our team
  • Equipment delivery and collection across the city centre
