Redditch Palace Theatre Makes a Big Saving With Prolights

The Palace Theatre in Redditch has invested in Prolights LED fixtures, to reduce its running costs further and improve its in-house lighting rig.

The theatre, which first opened in 1913, went through a refurbishment in 2005 as part of a process to make the venue more energy-efficient. To help meet its target of an ‘A’ rating for energy efficiency, the theatre worked with Andy Mahaffey, External Sales at A.C. Entertainment Technologies Ltd (AC-ET), to choose the right fixtures.

After looking at a range of options, the majority of the stage lighting has been upgraded to Prolights fixtures, including LUMA700 and DIAMOND7 LED moving lights, StudioCOB FC LED PARs, plus Eclipse Full Colour LED Profiles and Eclipse Tuneable White LED Fresnels.

Theatre Manager, Tim Mackrill has been incredibly impressed with the new Prolights fixtures. He commented: “The Prolights fixtures offer an excellent range of features and specifications at a competitive price.”

He continued: “One of the key attractions of the LED moving heads was the ability to have the light source dimming off, significantly reducing power consumption and extending the life of the units. We are already making savings both on our electricity bills and by not having to replace lamps.”

“Andy and AC-ET have been incredibly supportive, sharing their knowledge to aid us in making the right decision. From demonstrations to ordering to delivery, the whole process is efficient and faultless with a fast turnaround. Any enquiries at all, before, during and after the sale, Andy and the team are always willing to help.”
