It’s that busy time of year ………….Christmas Light Switch On’s!

The Lightmedia team get into the Festive spirit as they provide LED Screens all over the UK – lighting up cities from Scotland-London!

The first Christmas Light Switch on of the year was for Manchester City Council! Lightmedia were delighted to support their Christmas Lights Switch on Event in Albert Square which took place on Saturday 3rd November 2018!

What an amazing night it was with performances from Jonas Blue, Max George, the cast from Wicked, Dr Doolittle and The Producers. And what a Grand Finale with a huge firework display which lasted approximately 10 minutes.

Manchester Show Choir opened the event with a traditional Christmas theme, followed by the amazing Dance Academy.

Jonas Blue headlined the free switch on show before pushing the button to light up the city!
Thousands of people attended the Free Event in Manchester and hundreds arrived early to get prime positions at the front.

Due to road closures around Albert Square, the Lightmedia Team were on site bright and early on the morning of the event. The three Mobile LED Screens were positioned at various points around Albert Square.

Thank you, Margaret, for your glowing testimonial:
“I just wanted to say a massive thank you to you all and your teams from myself and the rest of us people here at the council. As ever it was a great show and I hope you enjoyed working on it as much as I did. I would say Merry Christmas and Happy New Year – but it still seems far too early.
Margaret, Manchester City Council

What a great event and many more to follow throughout November!

Having the meeting with Ian before the event was very helpful -actually going through how things work is really useful – especially if people are non tech. Ian was great – very helpful – great to have him and team onboard at the event.


Manchester Histories

Beth and Kim in the office were both very helpful and the team on site were great especially Ian who went out of his way to get things right for the show. A pleasure to work with.

Pleasure working with you, and very happy with my choice switching from my previous supplier to LMD. Excellent Service on all 4 events


Yorkshire Wildlife Park – Safari Nights

We would like to say a huge THANK YOU. Not only did you save us from having to cancel an event that was planned months in advance but also you restored our faith in the community spirit. We were let down by a similar company, a day prior to the planned event with no warning or communication.

What a result, the event was such a success thanks to your kindness and we received amazing reviews.
