about us

We are Kate and Simon. We've been working together for nearly 10 years now and have a combined experience of nearly 40 years in the creative industries. We've been working with Neil for about five years now too who is the wizard behind the technology. Together we specialise in site specific lighting design and immersive lighting installations.


At Lightworks we believe that all design should start with the audience experience. We map out the visual and emotional journey we want to take them on and use innovative design to maximise the environment and resource to create lasting memorable experiences for all. 

Collaboration is key and we love a good chat. We offer total creative leadership but can also supplement an existing team to give fresh eyes and insight to develop your event.
