TSL Supplied all the lighting equipment and lighting design for Brighton Royal Pavilion’s Christmas Ice Rink, a major new seasonal outdoor attraction on the city’s festive calendar. Located in the Royal Pavilion Gardens with the former Royal pleasure palace as a stunning backdrop, the 700 square metre rink accommodates 200 skaters per session and offers a fully licensed rink-side bar and restaurant run by award-winning eatery, Due South.
Given Brighton’s reputation as an artistic and creative city, ice rink operator Laine Ltd. wanted the winter attraction to have real ‘standout’ alongside other outdoor ice rinks in the country. TSL were approached by Laine Ltd. to provide all lighting for the ice rink, bar, restaurant and other enclosed hospitality areas, and the surrounding gardens.
The company recommended using bold coloured illumination to create dramatic mood lighting at night-time. To provide the ice rink’s coloured effects, TSL specified the Chroma-Q Color PunchLED fixture due to its IP65 outdoor rating, bright light output and compact design. A demo of the fixtures lighting an area roughly the size of the ice rink convinced Laine Ltd. that it was the right solution.
