Theatre & Stage Lighting, Audio, Rigging & Video for small venues to large productions

AC-ET has grown a lot since its origins in the early 1970s as the Alpha Centauri Light Show. We are now one of the world’s leading suppliers of professional entertainment equipment, spanning lighting, video, audio and rigging.

It’s those very roots that allow the AC-ET team to understand and supply many smaller theatres and amateur dramatic societies, while still regularly supplying equipment for many major West End productions, National and International Tours.
