UK - Cardiff-based rental and technical production specialist Stage Lighting Services has added to its existing all-Robe moving light inventory with a new investment in Robe Esprites which join the rental fleet.
Owned by Phil Hurley, together with sister company Stage Sound Services, Stage Lighting Services has a heritage of over 30 years’ experience, in which time it has built a solid reputation in the industry.
The last few months have seen a steady increase in work and business as shows and events start to return post-pandemic. With all the signs being so positive, Phil and the team, including head of hire & sales Scott Bainbridge, thought the time was right for some new investment.
With clients frequently asking for LED profiles with good framing shutters, particularly for the theatre and corporate work, this was where they focused for this specific purchase.
The existing relationship with Robe UK - dating back approximately 16 years - and success Stage Lighting Services has enjoyed with products over this time made the Esprite an immediate front runner.
The new Stage Lighting Services Esprites have already been out on several shows including Welsh language musical comedy Anthem at the Wales Millennium Centre, production managed by Emil Owen with lighting designed by Katy Morrison, and Ynys Alys a Welsh language touring theatrical production which is lit by Ceri James.
The fixtures were also on comedian Tommy Tiernan’s new stand-up show, Tomfoolery at the Eventim Apollo, which is being lit by Donal O’Luanaigh and production managed by Niall Barrett.
The intention is to invest in more Esprites later in the year in what they see as “the start of a long-term commitment to TE technology,” confirms Bainbridge.
