About Us

Founded in 1991, Hi-Lights is now in its twenty-fourth year of providing lighting, sound, staging and audio visual equipment to the entertainment and corporate-event industries.

Initially we started by hiring lighting and sound equipment to the theatre industry and undertaking production work to local theatres and performance venues.
