The Regent Theatre Lighting Project

PFI Team

SSE Contracting were pleased to be the principal contractor involved in the innovative public art lighting scheme at the Regent Theatre. The scheme plays with traditional theatre lighting and draws on the image of footlights to illuminate the front and sides of the fly-tower, all controlled by computer wizardry. The Regent Theatre - in particular its fly-tower - is one of the most visible landmarks in the city skyline. The public art scheme helps clearly identify the Regent Theatre as a major venue within the Cultural Quarter, promoting the Cultural Quarter as a vibrant contemporary place to work and visit particularly during twilight and evening hours. The state of the arts design uses LCD lighting which only requires a limited energy source. So not only does the scheme brighten up the city skyline but it’s also extremely energy efficient.
