Light and laser show at church to aid charities

Light and laser show at church to aid charities

by Tom Martin (October 2021)

OLD Christ Church in Waterloo will host a stunning ‘lighting and laser show’ in aid of two charities.

The event, created by Paul Alty and entitled ‘Black Hole – End of Time’, will be held on Saturday, November 27. It is a 30 minute show running from 4pm-9.30pm on a loop.

It will feature lasers, strobe lighting, haze, smoke effects and loud music to show the historic building in a whole new light!

The event is free to attend but in exchange for tickets people are asked to make a donation. 

This will then be split equally between The Church Conservation Trust and #WeMakeEvents.

Old Christ Church no longer functions as a place of worship but does run community events so the money raised will help it continue to operate.

#WeMakeEvents is a charity set up by the Professional lighting & Sound Association (PLASA) to support struggling live event technicians, designers and other behind the scenes people who have been hit hard through Covid due to financial and/or ill-health.

Paul said: “Using 20 lasers and a host of other architectural and lighting effects, the performance takes the audience on a journey - to orbit a black hole, a walk on clouds whilst looking up to the crystal star-filled ceiling to standing in the shadow of a black hole, watching it burst with laser light whilst beams dance around in every direction; and eventually watching it fade.

“The event is free entry but donations are requested for #WeMakeEvents, the technical entertainment charity, and The Church Conservation Trust.”
