World Diabetes Day
28th November 2008
Stage Electrics supported World Diabetes Day by lighting up the Liverpool Playhouse in blue. The historic Grade II* listed theatre was lit in blue for one evening only as part of the Monument Challenge.
World Diabetes Day Monument Challenge involves iconic buildings and landmarks around the world lighting up in blue as beacons of hope for the millions of people worldwide living with diabetes.
The event coincided with the production of "Horrid Henry! - Live and Horrid," presented by Watershed Productions in association with Sheffield Theatres by kind permission of Novel Entertainment.
Stage Electrics provided a selection of LEE Filters Gel along with 10 150W MBI floods with blue lamps to create the blue effect. The floods provided by Stage Electrics worked alongside existing exterior lighting.
Robert Longthorne, building development director at the Liverpool Playhouse comments: "With Stage Electrics' generous help, we rose to the Monument Challenge 2008, and helped raise awareness of diabetes in young people. We also raised a few hundred pounds for Diabetes UK's Children's Fund and for Children in Need through a collection at the end of the Horrid Henry performance. It was a pleasure, as always, to work with Stage Electrics and I look forward to the Monument Challenge 2009!"
