Immersive Events

Step into a fantastical environment

Adaptive, engaging lighting for experiential and pop up events.

Immersive events are a really vibrant business, and one we’re chuffed to be a part of. We’ve worked with amazing immersive designers, theatre creators, and party planners to help craft experiences that are like stepping inside living works of art. Our inspiration in this area comes from our experience of large, immersive festival work. It’s all about creating spaces people can really lose themselves in and spend an incredible night in a different reality.

Escaping reality

Immersive events mostly have their roots in festival and late night entertainment installation. We do too, so we have the experience and skillset to make your event awesome. We know what we’re doing when it comes to fixed, semi-permanent installations – with complex builds with custom elements and bespoke wiring. But also event lighting, with its shorter build times and at times hectic installs. Experience lighting these kinds of events has combined beautifully to mean we’re happy to take on any challenge your immersive event might present.

Bailes and Light are extraordinary people to work with. They have the humility and care to listen utterly to the brief they are given, the artistry to understand exactly what is trying to be created, and the flair to take the ideas they are given and make them far greater than they were to begin with. Above and beyond that they happen to be a joy to work with on a personal level! I know that we won’t be looking outside of their services with our own work for the foreseeable future.

  • History of lighting all sizes of immersive events, we’ve seen it before – we’re prepared for any possibility.

  • Experience working with highly technical installations with a fast turn-around in a measured, practical way.

  • Confidence and skills to adapt and light unusual and temporary spaces.

  • Capable of custom building fixtures when off the shelf products won’t do.

Experimental, experiential

We’re also not afraid to experiment with lighting, which we find is a key part of immersive events. If you need an unusual fixture for a tricky space in your venue, or even a product that doesn’t exist yet. We can work it out.

Working with creative people is something we love. Especially when we get to help make events that take crowds on an artistic and experiential journey. We’re really proud of the people we’ve already worked with. And we can’t wait to work with more.

Our events are only made possible because of the team at Bailes and Light. The creativity exhibited at Bailes and Light is unprecedented in their field. Their ability to work to new changes and artistically problem solve within the means and limitations of each project is second to none. Their relentless enthusiasm, skill and humour makes them an absolute pleasure to work with and we would recommend them, glowingly, to anyone (as long as you agree give them back!)
