A.C. Lighting North Supply The Carriageworks Leeds

16th January 2006

A.C. Lighting's Northern sales office has supplied over £70,000 worth of loose lighting and audio equipment to the newly fitted Carriageworks theatre in Leeds.

The Carriageworks houses two auditoria of 350 and 80 seats with state-of-the-art equipment, rehearsal and dressing rooms, and presents a vibrant mix of plays, musicals, film, community events, youth theatre and workshops. The venue is also the new home of the Leeds Civic Arts Guild, a group of amateur drama, opera and musical companies who will present an ongoing programme of performances.

Following a competitive tender to supply all technical theatre equipment, the venue's Technical Coordinator, Peter Waddicor, awarded the contract to A.C.'s Northern sales office in Leeds due to the company's ability to provide a complete one-stop-shop solution and rapid response service to meet their needs.

Using the company's dedicated lighting and audio sales teams, large stockholding of leading entertainment technology brands and in-house cable manufacturing service, A.C. Lighting was able to deliver all goods - including preparing the fixtures ready for hanging - in a very quick turnaround from order.

The Carriageworks' lighting system comprises of various ETC Source Four zoom profiles, Strand Alto and Cantata fresnels, James Thomas long nose Par 64s, Selecon Pacific zoom profiles and Lui cycs, Robert Juliat tungsten followspots, Vision Par 16s, Martin 3000W strobe and MAC 550 moving head fixtures, and Strand Quartet fresnel and profile lanterns.

A.C. Lighting also supplied Chroma-Q® scrollers with Tourflex Datasafe scroller cable, multicore cabling, Look Solutions Fog and Haze machines and Rat opera stands and piano lamps.

The company's Audio division used their expertise to provide the theatre's Studio system, which consists of an Allen & Heath Mixwizard 14:4:2 and Yamaha MG 12/4 mixing consoles, Yamaha P5000S power amplifier, Sabine dual channel feedback eliminator, Marantz CD player and PMD570 solid state recorder, Tascam CD and cassette playback units, Tannoy V12 loudspeakers, Sennheiser lapel radio microphone system, ultimate telescoping boom stand and microphone cable.

The Carriageworks' Technical Coordinator , Peter Waddicor, commented: "A.C. Lighting has provided a competitive and consistently high level of service throughout the job. They've been very flexible, managing to deliver everything within our very tight timescale and paid attention to the little things, such as supplying all the fixtures ready to hang."
