"We (Spinal Injuries Association) worked with Makin Lightin on our annual fundraising dinner, the most important fundraising event of the year. It was an absolute pleasure to work with Jonny, he interpreted exactly what we needed and delivered an event that far exceeded our expectations. His professionalism, attention to detail and willingness go above and beyond for us helped ensure it was one of our most successful dinners ever – thank you!"

"Makin Lightin is an invaluable service provider and absolutely vital for us to continue the standard of work we pride ourselves on. All technical aspects are covered by the team at Makin Lightin who go above and beyond to ensure we are supported. Their professional knowledge and ability to adapt and work outside the box allows us to realise our vision. Nothing is too much trouble and we are indebted to  them. We would not be able to stage the shows without them and would not ever entertain the idea of doing so, no Makin Lightin, no show. Thank you so much, long may the relationship continue."

"Jonny and his team are brilliant! We regularly hire equipment and utilise their team of freelancers for both indoor and outdoor events. They are a team of experts that are highly organised, reliable, professional and fun! The Grand at Clitheroe is proud to call Makin Lightin a partner."

“We recently had the team from Makin Lightin involved in our dance show. We wanted to create new lighting concepts, special effects and the team didn’t disappoint. The whole dance show looked fabulous start to finish with the team not only creating mesmerising effects on stage enhancing every child’s performance but they wired up the whole stage for sound and operated our slide show perfectly in sync with the lights.

It really made a huge difference to our show and it was all done quickly, efficiently and with a high degree of professionalism. I wouldn’t hesitate to use the company again and will be recommending with very high regard.”

“I am a regular director at Chorley Little Theatre and the current Head of Artistic. We have used Makin Lightin on many occasions for our lighting needs. Jonathan always provides a professional service ensuring that we get the equipment on time and in perfect working order.

It is also always provided at a competitive cost. What makes this company special is that Jonathan is also a designer who always takes time to understand the production and working space. Therefore always provides suitable and accurate solutions. I would highly recommend this company.”

“I hired Makin Lightin for my annual, summer, performing arts school show in Adlington this year. From initially contacting Jonathan right up to to the performance we received an extremely professional service at a very competitive price. Makin Lightin not only provided an excellent lighting technician but made sure that everything was set up to perfection. Jonathan and his team took away all the usual stresses of the technical side to the performance. I have already booked them again for next years production and i would without a doubt recommend them to anyone!”

"The friendly Makin Lighin team managed the tech (both lighting and sound) at a recent production of ours. The team went above and beyond what we expected. Nothing was too much trouble for them and they went out of their way to plan and prep ensuring that everything was just right for the production. Given that Makin Lightin’s forte is lighting (as their name suggests) I was impressed by their willingness to also manage the production sound too. If you’re planning a theatre show or other event I’d definitely recommend the guys at Makin Lightin to inject that extra shine."
