Festoon Lighting

Also known as String Lights, Circus Lights and Christmas Lights, Festoon Lighting is as beautiful to look at as the light that it produces. Used extensively in the film and television industries, Festoon can be used to create an atmosphere and evoke a sense of grandeur, or for a more intimate setting, dimmed down to produce a warm glow similar to candle light.

Ideal for lighting barns, marquees, halls and even outdoors between trees and along pathways. Festoon Lighting is very flexible and can be rigged to compliment the shape and size of any venue.
