Illuminate Design has record breaking Winter season

Illuminate Design has been keeping warm during the winter months with their busiest Winter
period ever, smashing previous records.
The Colchester based company was delighted to be working on a wide variety of events and
productions as well as continually providing a high level of dat-to-day support to their regular,
loyal customers.

Tilbury Docks was the location for a number of Christmas parties and Illuminate Design were
tasked to provide a winter lighting theme. The bespoke design included Pulsar Chroma Floods
plus ETC Source 4 profiles to light the ceiling and walls within the space. The temporary
installation ran for 2 weeks hosting a variety of parties and dinners.

The company were proud to be the chosen supplier to work with Butlins (Bourne Leisure) to help
create their winter ‘Igloo’. This entailed 3 identical systems for the resorts at Minehead,
Skegness and Bognor Regis. With up to 8 shows a day, the lighting and sound was all triggered
by midi for the ease of the show running, along with LED units, Jester lighting Desks and simpleto-run
sound systems. Our staff provided a complete solution for the technical aspects of the

Other projects saw lighting for the National Trust to help to create some festive magic for their
‘Christmas themed experience’ plus a range of Christmas parties in Essex which required lighting
and drapery for their Christmas parties.

No Christmas would be complete without Pantomime…Illuminate Design supplied over 40 radio
microphones, 30 moving lights, and provided over 3000 pyrotechnics to a number of venues, all
of which proving this Christmas to be a busy time for the growing Colchester based company.

Commenting on the recent busy period Ben Payne Director said: “It’s been a busy time for
Illuminate, we’re very proud to be involved in what has turned out to be our busiest winter ever.
I’m delighted that we have been able to support both the pantomime and event sector at the
same time. It’s a testament to the hard work that’s gone in over the last 18 months so that
clients are coming back to us because they like what we do and what we offer them. 2015
shows no sign of let up for us.”

Payne continues “We’ve just appointed a new member of staff to help our the team with the
growth of the company, and we are continually looking at our investments in stock to make sure
that we can keep pace with demand”
