As a preferred audio visual supplier at The Lutyens Crypt in Liverpool, Adlib was first contracted to provide sound and lighting services to Bibby for a charity ball held there in February 2012. Since then, Adlib has produced a number of events for Bibby Line Group in Liverpool including their annual charity ball at The Titanic Hotel, a number of awards ceremonies at The Royal Liver Building and Rum Warehouse and a conference at Crowne Plaza Liverpool City Centre.
For the annual charity ball, the main focus for Adlib has been on the lighting design. Each event has been themed slightly differently from the James Bond themed “Sky Ball” to a “Prohibition” theme and the lighting design has reflected this theme allowing strong theming to be carried through each event without breaking the budget.
The core focus for each lighting design has been enhancing the existing architecture within each venue to create a dramatic event backdrop. This has been achieved through the use of LED uplighters and wash lights combined textured patterns overlaid to create feature walls. The colour schemes have varied depending on the event theme.
Gobos allow us to project static or moving patterns or images onto walls. For the annual gala dinners, we have supplied gobo lighting to create a range of effects from projecting images onto the walls for the Masquerade Ball to stars onto the ceiling for the Sky Ball.
At each of the gala dinners organised by Bibby, there has been a stage for performances and presentations. We have provided small stage lighting packages allowing these people to be clearly seen and to highlight the stage area. When there have been performances, we have also supplied impactful performance lighting designs including moving lights and colour washes.
AV and Staging
We don’t just provide lighting hire. Our services encompass all audio visual disciplines including sound, lighting, video, projection and staging. For most of the events that we have produced for Bibby we have provided staging, sound and video equipment ranging from a simple plasma screen to a giant projection screens and conference staging.
