Huddersfield Town Hall Upgrades to PROLIGHTS LED Rig

The PROLIGHTS LED lighting range is helping Huddersfield Town Hall to meet its improved energy efficiency and production value goals for events.

The multi-purpose venue’s spectacular concert hall is at the very heart of the Huddersfield community’s cultural activities, hosting concerts, comedy shows, awards ceremonies, conferences and other events.

Andrew Wrixon, Technical Manager for Huddersfield Town Hall and other venues managed by the Kirklees Council, chose PROLIGHTS fixtures when the concert hall’s traditional rig was due to be upgraded to an energy-efficient LED system.

He commented: “We invested in PROLIGHTS fixtures as we have been very pleased with them at our other venues. Their price is very good and they achieve excellent results for us.”

The venue invested in over 40 PROLIGHTS fixtures, including ECLIPSEFC full colour LED profiles, STARK400 LED wash/beam lights with pixel mapping effects, JETSPOT4Z compact LED spotlights, and ECLIPSE PAR TU tungsten-colour LED PARs.

Andrew added: “We are very happy with the PROLIGHTS fixtures, which are performing as well as expected. We look forward to getting the most out of the additional effects we can now create for shows, to give visitors an even better experience, as well as helping with our running costs and the environment.”

The PROLIGHTS fixtures will be used on the full breadth of performances and live events hosted by the venue, including rock and pop concerts; brass bands, classical and choirs; comedy and conversation; and the local area’s Kirklees Concert Season of orchestral, chamber and organ concerts.

The fixtures were supplied by Ben Taylor at A.C. Entertainment Technologies Ltd., PROLIGHTS’ UK & Ireland distributor, who also supplied an Avolites console as part of the lighting system upgrade.

Andrew summarised: “We’re really pleased with the service we receive from AC-ET. Ben Taylor is like a friend, not a salesman. He understands our technical requirements and is always friendly and responsive to what we need for our venues.”
