Mushroom Lighting

THE creative team at lighting design and installation specialists Mushroom Lighting never tire of seeing their work all lit up!

The most recent projects for the Northampton-based team include using the latest technology to illuminate the Sunborn Hotel Yacht in London's Royal Victoria Dock and supplying dazzling miniature point-source LEDs to light part of the stage for the new play, Harry Potter and The Cursed Child, currently playing at the capital's Palace Theatre.

These success stories confirm yet again how the team's versatility and imagination can make a real difference to a project which might attract the attention of thousands of people or simply for a school or theatre.

The company's managing director Paul Butler's lifelong enthusiasm for lighting began when he was a young boy taking part in amateur dramatics in Kettering. He turned this passion into a thriving business with work across Europe including one the world's largest hanging time pieces called Timeless which hangs over a 40-metre void in the atrium at the Senator House in the City of London.

Mushroom Lighting's work with event organisers has called on the team to create lighting at St Paul's Cathedral, Amnesty House and even to create snow for three months in the heart of Knightsbridge. Other showstoppers include the RVM Award winning festive lights for Debenhams' Oxford Street flagship store in 2014, where just three weeks was needed to install over 4.5km of lighting, hung using several thousand metres of wire and 3000 short connector leads

Paul Butler said: "While we are well known at a national and international level for our work we still appreciate the opportunity to work with clients in Northamptonshire who demand the same high-quality work competitively priced.

"Since the original company started in the 1970s we have always taken pride in offering a personal service, so each client can feel confident they have the right lighting for their project which is installed on time and within budget.

"We are really keen to talk to clients who have an idea or may need inspiration, whatever the project. They are usually pleasantly surprised about what we can create and the budget required."
