Avidity Lighting was founded by two friends, James & Marcus. Outside of our main jobs as commercial airline pilots, we actively follow our passion in the lighting and live entertainment industry.

When we were first starting to learn the art of lighting design and operation, we purchased between us what we believe is one of the best lighting control consoles on the market ? the MA Lighting dot2 XL-F Console. In order to help cover the cost of the console, we decided to found a company through which we could hire the board to like-minded people at affordable rates. Since then, we have grown our services to provide ad-hoc lighting production and venue management.

The word Avidity means ?a keen interest or enthusiasm? and was chosen specifically when we founded the company as this reflects our core ethos. Everything we do is motivated by our passion for lighting and the excitement that working within the industry brings.

If you’d like to get in touch please do drop us a line and we’d love to see if we can help! – James & Marcus

Avidity Lighting Ltd was founded by two friends, Marcus and James, who have a passion for lighting and live entertainment. Outside of our day jobs as commercial airline pilots, we have recently been exploring the world of lighting design and operation and it’s been great fun!

As part of our journey, we’ve purchased between us what we believe is one of the best lighting consoles available for small to mid-size productions – the dot2. Manufactured by MA Lighting, the company behind the hugely successful and industry leading GrandMA series, the dot2 is rapidly gaining popularity as an easy-to-use, feature rich and flexible console.

We love working with and meeting people who share our enthusiasm for lighting. As a result, we welcome any hire requests from fellow designers / operators who are looking to take advantage of the benefits the dot2 has to offer. If you’d like to get in touch please contact us and we would be more than happy to see if we can help! – James & Marcus

“The lighting rig at the Boileroom stands head and shoulders above a lot of the smaller venues we’ve played across the country. It makes all the difference to the bands coming through and the fans coming to the shows and supporting the venue.”
