Hello all. After a well earned rest for us all following the Lumiere I am slowly beginning to work on some exciting ventures!! I had such a fantastic response to the light cages seen in both Lumiere Durham and Derry that we intend to go into production of these and they will hopefully be sold through this website!! Watch this space.....
