Essential Supplies is pleased to be supporting Plymouth in remembering its historical past and the bygone years of world exploration.

The aim of the festival is to transform Plymouth, showcasing projections and light art installations from local, national and international artists to provide a vibrant, fun and inspiring experience for Plymouth’s citizens and visitors alike.

Essential Supplies were asked to support the creation of a visually stunning ‘moment’ around the Royal William Yard Marina for the launch of the Mayflower 400 commemorations. As well as running lighting shows throughout the festival.

We are working alongside ADJ to create a lighting display consisting entirely of ADJs IP rated outdoor units. The display will include 26 x 32 HEX IP Panels and 24 x Hydro Beam X2.  With thousands of people attending and BBC TV Crews capturing the launch our display has to be world class.


Our lighting display will be programmed and run using a Chamsys MQ40N.

All fixtures used for the production used LED sources helping reduce the amount of temporary power required, our power systems are supplied by Titan Power.

Essential Supplies is extremely pleased to have been able to contribute to the running of this important local event.
