During its tenth year in its Wimbledon base, White Light adds additional space for storage and equipment and tour prep. To mark this expansion, it is inviting everyone along to explore the new facility during an Open Day on Thursday 21 July.
2011 marks not only the 40th anniversary of entertainment lighting specialist White Light, but also ten years since the company moved to its expansive headquarters in Wimbledon, south-west London. Now, after ten years of growth, White Light is expanding again – spreading into a neighbouring building to increase its footprint by more than 50 percent.
To mark this expansion, it is inviting everyone along to explore the new facility during an Open Day on Thursday 21 July.
“We’re delighted to have been able to expand into an adjacent building – giving us more storage room but more importantly more space for preparing shows, carrying out equipment demonstrations, even pre-lighting or rehearsing shows if required,” comments White Light’s managing director Bryan Raven.
The new building will operate in three sections. One will provide dramatically enhanced storage for White Light’s sales operations, which now sees the company serving as the exclusive UK distributor for fourteen major international lighting manufacturers. The second will provide a clear area for visiting crews to pre-rig new productions and tours. The final area provides a large, clear, blacked-out demonstration, pre-lighting or even rehearsal space, with rigging and power available.
The Open Day will provide the perfect opportunity not only to see it, but to check out the very latest additions to White Light’s lighting and sales stocks, including the new prototype of the JB Lighting A8 Zoom and A12 Zoom, the Galaxia LED Softlight, the LEDko LED spotlight from Coemar, the full range of fixtures including the Aledin LED units from Robert Juliat, the LED range from LeaderLight and much, much more.
All are welcome to the Open Day, which will run from 2pm until 8pm on Thursday 21 July. If you are planning to attend, White Light just ask you to email [email protected]
