UV cannons are also a common addition to the nightlife scene offering a special glow in the dark effect. Getting your guests dressed up in day glow paints is a great way to bring attention to your event. We can also supply UV paint, glow sticks and other items to enhance the effect. UV cannons can be placed almost anywhere in any venue to give you the right effect.

Combining the UV with bubbles can give you yet another excuse to party. UV bubble fluid combined with the bubble machines gives off an excellent glow in the dark effect. All of these effects are available from our Essex base. For instance, we can supply across the country to different pubs, clubs, promoters and anyone else.
