Support the Scheme

Since 2015 we have helped four Lumières establish the skills they need to work in large scale entertainment, to build their experience within the industry as well as providing mentorship and working relationships from participating lighting designers, which can last them a lifetime.

We need to fundraise for every scheme we run. Regular contributions from the ALPD membership itself can help that process. Previous schemes have been awarded funding from the Andrew Lloyd Webber Foundation and the Cameron Mackintosh Foundation.

The charitable trusts and foundations to whom we apply for support want to see industry professionals supporting a scheme from the inside, so the more people who contribute even a small amount, the more other organisations see the scheme as a welcome addition to the industry.


Coming Soon! - A Light Walk

Stratford-Upon-Avon to the Southbank
Lumière Scheme & Backup - Sponsored Walk
20th to 24th September 2021

To raise funds for the Lumière Design & Production Schemes to run in 2022 and to support the much needed work of Backup we will be doing a sponsored walk from the Royal Shakespeare Company in Stratford-Upon-Avon to the National Theatre in London.

Do you want to join us and take on this challenge?

You can join us for one, some, or the whole 5 days. You can also take part remotely by completing the same distance in your local area during the month of September.

Further details and sponsorship information will be released soon.
