Lighting hire

You can now hire our genuine vintage lighting for weddings, photo shoots, parties and film sets. We have a great selection of vintage lighting, all has been fully restored and rewired. We specialize in vintage theatre lights for example Patt23 and Furse stage spotlights. We convert these into floor standing lamps. We also look for vintage film sets lights. In particular the Mole Richardson branded spotlights. Again we fully restore these often taking the time to chrome plate them. These are then converted into floor lamps. We usually have 4-5 of these available. Alongside various vintage pendants, bulkheads and wall lights. Our collection is growing all the time and we are always looking to buy new and unusual pieces. All our restored pieces can be viewed online. If you would like to hire one of our pieces here's how it works.


If you are a registered company we do not take a desposit for the light prop. You will need to collect the light and sign a contract accepting the value of the fitting and our terms and conditions. If you are not hiring our lighting on behalf of a company we will need proof of identification ie a passport or a driving licence. We will also take a 30% desposit for each fitting taken. Payment can be made using a debit card, cash or a bank transfer. The minimum hire period is 1 week. So if you take the fitting from us on a Monday you have until the following Monday to return it back to us. We do not deliver our lighting it must be collected from our Bristol showroom. The hire costs depend on the value of the fitting. See below.

Fitting value £10-£100 cost of hire £25 inc vat per week.

Fitting value £100-£250 cost of hire £50 inc vat per week

Fitting value £250-£500 cost of hire £100 inc vat per week

Fitting value £500-£1000 cost of hire £150 inc vat per week

Fitting value £1000+ cost of hire £200 inc vat per week

Fitting value £1500+ cost of hire £250 inc vat per week

 

After the first week the fitting hire is then calculated at a day rate which is the initial weekly hire cost divided by 7. So if the fitting costs £100 for the first week the day cost thereafter would be £14.28 inc vat. When you return the fitting to us the hire cost will be calculated. A full VAT invoice will then be provided for the hire value. If you want to hire multiple pieces we are happy to discuss a discount on the above prices. All our vintage lights come with a vintage style lamp, they are pat tested and come wired with a UK plug. We can change the plug to a 5amp round pin plug or a 16amp 3 pin plug. This will cost £5 per item.
