Arrow About Zig Zag

Zig Zag Lighting (North) is committed to providing the best possible service for your production, from a product launch to the tour of a lifetime for your band.

The History...

The concept of starting a lighting company came when Neil Hunt met Kevin Ludlam at Leeds Polytechnic (now Leeds Metropolitan University), and they worked together on the crew for the University of Leeds entertainments under Andy Kershaw and Stuart Galbraith. They worked with some of the biggest bands of the time including ZZ top, Iron Maiden, U2 and many more.

They formed Zig Zag Lighting in 1984, with a combination of equipment owned by both of them. They did a considerable amount of work in and around London, before the company was then split in two, becoming Zig Zag Lighting and Zig Zag Lighting (North)

Zig Zag Lighting (North) was officially formed in 1985 by Neil, initially undertaking much touring work, as a stage and effect lighting company. We have gone from strength to strength, supporting some very famous bands whilst on tour, from Nirvana to Joe Strummer, Carter USM to Terrorvision. In more recent yeas we have branched out into other areas of the lighting industry, including corporate events, and product launches amongst others.

We can supply everything to do with the lighitng industry from lights to truss to ground support. We can also supply power distribution systems, lighting designers, electricians, riggers, general crew and consumables.
