NP & Co: Letters Live 2015

Letters-Live 2

Project Overview

  • Across four nights at the beginning of April 2015, Blinding Light was proud to illuminate the spectacular Freemasons’ Hall in Covent Garden for Letters Live.
  • Each show featured a unique line up of artists including Sir Ian McKellen, Kylie Minogue, Tom Hiddleston and Sir Ben Kingsley led by Benedict Cumberbatch in which 103 memorable letters were read to a sold out audience.
  • Blinding Light’s Neil Harvey created a lighting design to add ambience and a sense of theatre while framing and highlighting the performance area.
  • SGM P-5s and Clay Paky K10s were used to provide a wash of colour in the venue, while Smartbat wireless uplighters were used to highlight specific architectural features within the hall.
  • Clay Paky Alpha Spot 300 HPEs were also included in the rig to light the performers, while 1k generic floods were utilised to provide house lighting.
  • Blinding Light also designed and supplied a complete rigging solution to support all the lighting fixtures that was designed to work around the venues rigging points and was implemented using Litec QX30 truss.
  • The full rig was operated on a Chamsys MQ100 lighting desk by David Amos.
