Aurora Gets Classical At Leeds Castle

July 2015

Aurora Lighting Hire lights up the Garden of England with event management team Relevent for the 2015 Heritage Events Leeds Castle Classical Concert.

Now in its 37th year, the Leeds Castle Concerts are considered the premier event of its kind in the Kent Summer calendar and this year’s show proved no exception with over 12,000 visitors taking to the lawns of the iconic castle.

Working with Lighting Designer Theo Cox, Aurora supplied lighting, rigging and crew to the production to create an on stage lighting spectacular to compliment the existing installation at the beautiful medieval venue.

Keeping the power requirement low and the green credentials high, a variety of LED products were deployed including Martin Mac Aura and Mac Quantum Wash to add colour and movement to performances by The Definitive Rat Pack, who kicked off the show with a touch of Vegas, followed by the world famous Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, conducted by John Rigby.

The low power approach was augmented by generator provider Midas who ran Biodeiesel throughout the event. Meanwhile, back on stage, Mac Viper Profiles, Nova Flowers, and Stage Bars provided stunning aerial beam effects that completed the look, creating movement above the stage, highlighting the vast crowd and working perfectly against the intricate backdrop.

Commenting on the event, Aurora Project manager Sam Crook said “It’s a real pleasure to be part of an event with such history behind it. Crew Chief Tony Fagan and his team have done a fantastic job in bringing the production together”.
