About Us

Jack Holloway (founder) came to stage lighting in the most usual route i.e. as an amateur starting at the age of 11 working on the “school show”. Later at the age of 14 he lit his first show called “King Arther”. After leaving school he spent 2 years at the BRIT School and another 3 years at Rose Bruford College studying a BA Hons degree in  Lighting Design. During his time in education he always had a passion to run his own business and so the hobby became his business. Starting with 6 lights and a 5 amp dimmer with a six channel desk , working from the garden shed, he made inroads into the school and amateur market locally and acquiring second-hand lanterns as quickly as possible build up a stock of some 20 lanterns in the first year. After 3 years the garden shed became a little cramped so moved into a warehouse.
