Francis Reid

It is with great sadness that we report the peaceful passing of well-loved and distinguished lighting designer, author, lecturer and teacher, Francis Reid, early yesterday morning 9th June.

Editor John Offord said: “It was a privilege and pleasure to have known Francis and to have worked with him in later years on the publication of the many interesting titles that poured out of a lively mind – and with the help of a crafty pen.” He was 86, and had spent all his working life within the world of theatre, playing a major role in the establishment of lighting design as a recognised art form and profession.
