Here’s something a bit different. We recently provided the lighting for Oxford University’s annual Michaelmas Ball in the Oxford Union Debating Chamber. This year’s theme was “A Night on the Titanic”.
Outside was a large marquee, the “upper deck”, where guests were greeted with welcome drinks. We installed a canopy of festoon lights in the marquee ceiling and blue uplighting to complement the theme.
Inside the debating chamber, the “lower deck”, was the area for entertainment and dancing. We installed large crystal chandeliers, dynamic colour changing uplighting, intelligent party lighting, animated “underwater” effects and a custom animated monogram projected onto the floor by the entrance.
The monogram featured the titanic sailing into view and then sinking!
