Busy Christmas for White Light Events

UK - White Light Events reports the completion of an extremely busy Christmas period, which has seen it providing lighting to some of London's most prestigious party venues.

For the third consecutive year, the company was invited to design and supply the lighting for the parties and events held at Coram's Fields in north London, managed by European Events. This year's parties were themed around the Winter Solstice: lighting designer Mike Robertson responded by creating a fantasy world using a mixture of lavenders and blues to embellish the themed environment.

European Events were also managing a new marquee structure in the grounds of London Zoo, themed as the Latin Quarter. Here White Light Events used image projection, haze and colour washes of vivid reds, pinks and ambers to create a highly charged atmosphere for the parties' guests. The lighting system was also flexible enough to cope with daytime events including an Ugly Bug Ball for young children!

Elsewhere in London, the company was part of the revival of a favourite party venue, the Hop Exchange. Evolve Events and Inneventive had devised a New Orleans theme, with lighting effects adding magical moments such as a reveal of the dining room through a gauze partition. The White Light Events team also had to cope with the restrictions imposed by the building's historic architecture; so a range of custom solutions were created to allow lighting fixtures to be rigged where required.

Alongside these large-scale events, the company also lit a number of smaller projects including a fantasy Father Christmas Grotto at Painshill Park, events at the 1505 Club and the Hotel Russell and a launch event for BMW.
