About Our Lighting Company London Services

What We Do

STLS are a production company that offer their lighting, sound and video service across London and Surrey. We have provided stage lighting hire for productions of all varieties, all shapes and all sizes. We have helped to light arenas, concert halls, plays, musicals, ballets, operas, conferences, lectures, you name it and we have most certainly shed a lot of lighting on it!

We also provide event lighting hire, London and Surrey. If you can imagine that theatre productions and stage lighting is diverse, it is nothing compared to the explosion of innovative requests and lighting creativity that has come out of the many events we have catered to; weddings, corporate parties, birthdays, school discos, gallery installations. These events have taken place in locations from tower blocks to fields, from warehouses to barns and from churches to hotels.

What Stage Lighting Do We Provide?

Stage lighting is an art. As much as a painter relies on the quality of his brushes, a lighting designer relies on the quality of his equipment. We have a range of lighting capable of filling any stage lighting hire requirement. Stage lighting falls into roughly five sections, all of which we can cater to.

Spotlights. These are used for extreme focus and detail in a stage, picking out the desired subject for attention. We have specific spotlights in stock as well as a range of LED units that serve brilliantly for this purpose.

Fixed-Focus Lighting

These cover a wide area but are special because the covers are treated to exactly the same light; no fading out at the edges.

Broad Lights

These are your basics. Lightweight, single bulb lamps, perfect for small spaces and filling in forgotten shadowy corners. These are perfect for small studio theatres and subtly lit rooms.

Soft Lamps

These really do soften stages. Without them, there would be a lot of shadow on stage, and the comparison between light and dark would be extremely harsh. These are used to blur that line and make the onstage picture easier on the eye.


This is a task that can actually be performed by most lighting units if the space is right. This is a foundation measure, used to give the stage a base coat before other tones are added.

What Event Lighting Do We Provide?

The lighting being used at and designed for events is ever expanding, the effects they produce are getting forever cooler and more imaginative. Our stock is also expanding in response to this which makes us one of the most diverse event lighting hire companies in London. Here’s a quick look at some of our most popular units:

Fairy Lights. These are the perfect way to add a little fantasy to a room. Yes, they do come in the single line variety, as you might have on your Christmas tree. But we also have them in the form of wall hangings, creating an entire façade of twinkling lights, you could even hire an entire tent with its walls and ceilings dripping in lights.

Disco Lights. The dancefloor is no disco without decent lighting. We have the whole lot, moving lights, strobes, disco balls, lasers. Anything to get that dancing going and an atmosphere rocking.

Outdoor Lighting. Outdoor areas are becoming more and more utilised as the standard and range of outdoor lighting. Create a well lit outdoor area by installing floodlights and then adorn the area with a cradle of fairy and festoon lights to calm to mood and ensure some ambience.

LED Up-lights. These up lights are brilliant. LED’s produce strong reliable light without producing a lot of heat or using a lot of power. They are pretty affordable lighting units too! These are perfect for creating a soft up-light for and space, inside of out; framing it in a soft glow.

Moving Lights. In opposition to up-lights and floodlights, these are not to create clam or ambience. They create movement, as the name might suggest, and are perfect if you want to rally up some excitement for what is to come in your event!
