Vortex Lighting was established in 1983 by Graeme Sewell, (still at the helm today), to provide an affordable lighting service for bands in the North east of England. By the early ’90s, we were the first firm in the area to specialise in “Intelligent” lighting and expanded into corporate, festival, theatre and some TV work. We also started to offer Dry Hire, Sales and Installations of Lighting, Stages and Special Effects. We became a Limited Company in 2006, but to this day, our aim remains the same, to provide our valued customers with quality equipment at competitive prices.
Whether you would like us to provide a complete service, where we set up, operate and remove the equipment, or you would just like to Dry Hire the equipment and operate it yourselves, we are here to help.
Trade enquiries are most welcome!
We deal directly with some of the industry’s most respected Manufacturers, so combined with our vast experience, we can offer you the best deal possible!
If you are looking for a new installation in your venue, or need to upgrade an existing one, please get in touch so that we can provide you with a free, no obligation quotation.
