A Zero 88 lighting control solution – including FLX S48 lighting console and Bypass dimmer / switchpacks – has been supplied to St Andrew’s School in Woking, Surrey, UK, by rental, sales and installations specialist Henley Theatre Services (HTS).

The school, founded in 1937, is an established, respected and thriving coeducational prep school for around 300 children aged 3 to 13. As part of a commitment to deliver a stimulating and vibrant educational and developmental environment for its pupils, last year St Andrew’s invested in a brand new, 230 capacity purpose-built state-of-the-art theatre – the Little Field Theatre – and rehearsal space in its 11-acre grounds.

The venue’s technical specification - including the Zero 88 elements - was delivered by consultants Theatre tech who designed the production lighting, sound and comms systems. A tender issued for the equipment supply was won by HTS who liaised closely with both the consultants and the client. HTS completed the installation and commissioning of the equipment on site.

HTS’s Reg Berry explained that the FLX S48 provided an ideal lighting control option due to its “clever but simple” approach to controlling a combination of different lightsources including LED and tungsten units.

Reg himself has been specifying and supplying Zero 88 products for over 20 years and comments that the brand has maintained an “excellent reputation” throughout that time, and that the FLX range of consoles - launched four years ago - has “added substantially to that”.
