WHAT EVENT / PARTY LIGHTING SHOULD I HIRE? ON TOUR EVENTS TALKS LIGHTING....
There's nothing better than the celebration of a milestone or a significant birthday. Whether you're hosting a ruby anniversary or a joint birthday party, large scale private events of this nature always benefit from excellent lighting. From jazzing up the dance floor to setting the mood for the entire venue, the choices you make with your lighting will ultimately impact on the overall success of your festivities.
With that in mind, it's worth running over what you need to consider before you make your event lighting choices.
+LIGHTING CONSIDERATIONS FOR A EVENT OR PARTY
When it comes to lighting for a private celebration or a party, your lighting will depend a lot on the specific venue you've chosen, as well as other equipment you may have hired. For instance, if you're going to hire an outdoor marquee, then functional lighting is going to be an absolute necessity as soon as the daylight fades.
Whether your venue is indoors or outdoors, you may also want to hire a stage to provide a focal point for your evening's entertainment, in which case a great deal of your thinking around lighting is going to focus on stage lighting fixtures.
Then there are the additional considerations of the performances themselves, not to mention the dancefloor. Many party DJs will insist on the presence of certain lighting fixtures (such as disco lights and lasers) before you book them. Similarly, if you've engaged the services of a live band, then you're going to need to hire complementary live performance lighting.
So what do those styles of lighting entail? Which types of fixtures are likely to feature heavily within your private celebration or birthday party events selections?
Spotlights are the mainstay of most live performances. If you've hired a stage, then you're going to need spotlights to provide clear visibility of performers and entertainers to your event guests irrespective of whether you've hired a live band, DJ, comedian, or even a magician.
+LED PAR CANS
Where there's a stage, there are PAR cans as we say in the events industry. These incredibly versatile lights can wash a stage in every shade of the rainbow, and they now benefit from LED technology, so they are nowhere near as power-hungry!
+FESTOON EVENT LIGHTING
These types of lighting fixture go by many names. You may know them better as fairy lights, or string lights. Either way, these are long lines of lightbulbs (of differing designs) that you adorn all over your venue to provide beautiful but functional lighting. These are an excellent choice if you have an outdoor event in a marquee or tipi, and are a very popular choice for wedding lighting.
LIGHTING FOR PRIVATE EVENTS & PARTIES

+DISCO / PARTY LIGHTING EQUIPMENT
What would a dancefloor be without disco lights? These lights are literally in charge of "getting the party started" and emit all kinds of flashing patterns and colours. Some even have intelligent settings that allow them to perform in time to the beat of a musical number, which is always a hit with DJs!
+LASERS > > > >
Following a similar theme, lasers are always a popular addition to any party. The sheer variety of patterns and colours make them one of the best value for money lighting fixtures you can hire. If you do hire a laser, smoke machines make an excellent companion as they help the laser beams to really "pop"!
Perfect for completely altering the vibe of either an indoor or outdoor venue, these floor-based lights can wash walls and ceilings in a wide range of colours. The best part? You can hire wireless versions which are perfect for outdoor events with limited power supply, and indoor events where running wires between lights could be a trip hazard.
+ADDITIONAL LIGHTING CONSIDERATIONS FOR PRIVATE EVENTS & PARTIES
Of course, lighting fixtures aside, you're going to need to think about precisely where your choices will go. Not all venues will allow you to attach lighting fixtures to walls and ceilings, whereas others will have specific locations dedicated to housing lights.
You may also need to hire a couple of truss structures to affix the lights to, which we can provide for you here at On Tour Events. This is almost undoubtedly the case if you're hosting an outdoor celebration.
Then there are additional LED-powered fixtures that you could hire that aren't necessarily lights. For instance, we have a wide range of LED-lit furniture, including mobile bars, chairs, and tables available for hire. We also have LED screen hire services, should you want to play some footage of the celebrant(s). Whatever you may need, we've got you covered.
