Dry Hire Lighting and Projector

Stage lighting hire from CMS allows you to get all technical aspect of your show from one place.  Nearly all of the lighting we stock is low energy LED and like our sound systems we have attempted to make it easier by offering some lighting hire package.  Anything you don’t see here we can probably get from Halo lighting who are a local specialist.  We can pick up items from them if you need to augment a system that you are getting from us.

All prices given below are for a 1-day hire period.
