    Charity Fashion Show Lighting

    Charity Fashion Show

    On Monday 18th March we were in Sedgefield providing lighting and production support, for a charity fashion show by Jayne Ladies Boutique, raising money for the Great North Air Ambulance.

    During our discussions with the event organisers, we were asked to do one thing –  ‘To make it colourful!’  This gave us total freedom with the lighting design.  Our first priority was to make sure the catwalk was evenly lit, so that every single audience member had a great view from wherever they were sitting.  Our second objective was to make the venue ‘colourful’.  This may sound straight forward but with such a wide brief, we  had to carefully consider the overall look we wanted for the charity fashion show, how we would best achieve this, what type of lighting fixtures to use and to consider the colours we could use based on the colours of the outfits the models were going to wear.

    We planned our lighting design in advance of the show, so that on the day we could load the equipment into the venue knowing exactly where every lighting fixture was to be placed.  This made setting up much more efficient.  Having a detailed design also enabled use to address all our fixtures in advance at our base, to program the main elements of the charity fashion show into the lighting console and to run a visualizer, giving us a chance to see how it would look.

    We received great feedback from the client and they have already booked us for their other charity fashion shows they are putting on this year.

    If we can help you with your event, then please get in touch via our contact us form. Or if you would prefer to speak to someone in person give our office a call on 01325 520357. We are always on hand to provide information and guidance.

    charity ball room lighting and sound hire

    Charity Ball – Room Lighting & Sound Hire

    March 7th was the annual Charity Event for HCPT Group 25. Each year we provide their production so their night runs smoothly and raises money for their trip to Lourdes.

    This year was no different, with the night needing full room lighting setup and sound for the band. We installed room lighting in 2 rooms, the main hall at Headlam Hall Hotel and in the Lounge are for the choir who were performing. All LED fixtures meaning we could make the room look amazing, whilst keeping it tidy. The colour this year was Gold, but once the band started we had full control of the room lighting to colour the room anything we wanted.

    The band, The Jailbirds travelled from Manchester to play. They required a full PA with 3 vocals and back line. We supplied and ran it all for them, the room posed some issues but we overcame it and it could not have gone better! Over £2000 raised on the night.

    The night finished with us providing our Mobile Disco services, rounding the night off!
