A Brief History….

Zigzag Lighting was established in 1983 as a joint venture by Kev Ludlam and Neil Hunt, both of whom had worked for several years in the music industry. After the first successful year, the company was divided and has since evolved into Stage & Event Lighting Ltd. trading as Zigzag Lighting, run by Kev in London and Zigzag Lighting Ltd. trading as Zigzag Lighting North, run in Leeds by Neil. This is the website of Zigzag Lighting in London. Although we are two discrete companies we still collaborate on some of our larger shows and offer support for each other where required.

Our roots are in the music industry and we still provide our services to many world famous artists, however we have diversified over the years and can also boast a wealth of experience in many other areas of specialist lighting, such as Conferences, Fashion Shows, Exhibitions, Product Launches, Private Functions, Dance Events  and Education.

Looking for a complete package? We can design a lighting system around your needs with computer visualisations and supply the hardware – delivered, set up and operated by our experienced technicians and programmers.

Perhaps you just need to hire equipment. Have a look at our Hires section where most of our equipment is listed to see if we can provide what you are looking for. Business to business trade discounts are available on request.

We can also help you with your sales requirements or installations. Although we can  take advantage of our contacts with suppliers and manufacturers to get preferential prices for our customers, we are not tied to any particular brands and will always try to supply the equipment which best satisfies our clients’ requirements.
