About Us

Creative Spark is owned and run by Claire and Dan Terry. They met on a theatre show in 2012, and a year after they married in 2014 decided to put their many years of experience together and started Creative Spark. Claire and Dan are incredibly proud of the company and hope to work with you soon.

Claire Terry

Claire developed an interest in lighting and technical theatre at a very early age whilst helping her Dad with his school shows and concerts. She went on to develop her skills, studying Drama at the University of Hull. Since graduating she has expanded her knowledge of lighting and sound through working in theatres and schools.

Claire’s passion for doing things properly and attention to detail makes her a real asset to the company and you couldn’t ask for anyone better to work on your project, wedding or event.

Dan Terry

Dan has had a passion for electrics and lighting since a young age and has always aspired to have a career in lighting. After achieving a BA Hons Degree in Lighting Design at Rose Bruford he has been freelancing as a lighting designer and technician, including 2 years full time with a leading London events company.

Dan still designs for theatre and concerts alongside running Creative Spark with Claire. His huge wealth of experience with all elements of production, from lighting design through to electrics and set construction makes him the ideal person to have on your project.
