|The ALPD has announced that for 2021, the year in which the association not only changed its name to better reflect its membership but also the year in which it celebrated its 60th anniversary, eleven new fellows should join its membership for life.|
The ALPD Fellowships are bestowed in recognition of the immense contribution each individual has made to the Association and to the lighting community as well as the industry as a whole. A further two honorary members were also welcomed into the ALPD fold. The presentations will be made at the Lighting Dinner to be held at the Park Plaza Hotel, London, in February.
ALPD Chair, Johanna Town, said, “It is an extraordinary year for the ALPD, which has followed on from a truly extraordinary period for all of us in the lighting profession, the theatre community and far beyond.
