The EU has proposed that all stage lighting should be removed and replaced with LED fixtures by the year 2020. This may not seem that bad to some of you but the fact is that this is almost impossible. LED fixtures are expensive and are not able to give off the same bright glow that is normally achieved on a theatre production. I have no doubt that all of you will have a seen a theatre production and whilst lighting might not have been a great focus to you it does enhance a performance greatly. The bulbs found in stage lights such as Profiles, fresnels and par-cans are perfectly reliable and have a long life meaning the loss of these lanterns would be a waste.
