Butlins trip the light fantastic


Every year millions tune in to watch one of America’s biggest and brightest sporting and entertainment spectacles… The Super Bowl.

But what very few Lincolnshire residents realise is that the very same bright lights that illuminate this sporting spectacle can be found on their very own doorstep.

This year Butlins Skegness has invested over £93,000 into kitting out its resort, specifically meeting and event spaces, with the very best audio and visual equipment. The crème de la crème of lights, speakers and LED big screens now sit pride of place in the Butlins resort ready and waiting to shine an international light on the most local of meetings and events.

For the techno heads out there who like to know the specifics, the lights in question are the award winning Clay Paky A.Leda B-Eye K10 Moving Light, Martin Rush MH2 Wash Moving Light, Chauvet Q-Spot 560z Moving Light, Chauvet Q-Wash 419z Moving Light and Chauvet Rogue R2 Spot, which run alongside Allen & Heath Ilive T112 mixing desks, Showtech P12.5 LED Screens and Arkaos Media Master software.

UK national sales manager for Butlins Events Simon Jones said: “It’s hugely exciting to be able to offer the best technology and equipment to businesses and event planners looking to hold events at our resorts. At Butlins we are known for leading the way in service and hospitality, and it’s fantastic that we are now also leading the way in technology - an ever increasingly important aspect for conferences, incentives and events.”
