Credit line
This floodlight was purchased by the Bowl of Brooklands Trust and was thought to be among the first set of lights used at the venue. Over the years it was part of a set of lights which were shared between the Bowl of Brooklands and the Opera House. They were used until the mid-late 1990s until they were replaced after an incident where glass from one fell onto the stage in front of a performer.
