About Showlite Sound and Light

First established in 1985 as Showlite Stage Lighting, Showlite Sound and Light now specialises in providing high quality public address systems, still popularly known as Tannoys, for a wide variety of events.

Our smaller PA system packages will fit easily into an average car and they are simple to set up and use. Also being weatherproof and fully battery operated means you can literally make yourself heard almost anywhere in complete safety. Our larger packages can be configured to suit many different applications, all you have to do is ask. We also have LED disco lighting packages for hire to help create the party atmosphere. All you have to do is add the music.

Whatever your lighting or sound requirements – from carnivals to conferences, from fetes to funerals, and from parties to plays – we will be pleased to help you achieve your goal. Our 40 years of experience in theatre lighting, public address and sound reinforcement systems means we can confidently offer you sound advice … and a good deal more!
