Dams Celebrates its 50th Anniversary in Style

Dams celebrated its 50th anniversary in style by holding a dinner party and a night of entertainment at the Crowne Plaza hotel in Liverpool. Held on the 8th September, around 230 customers, suppliers, colleagues and friends mingled, drank champagne, were served delicious food and enjoyed the evening’s entertainment.

The celebrations commenced at the start of the evening with a gold star magician who amazed everyone with his sleight of hand and magical illusions. During the three course meal, the Singing Waiters really set the tone for the evening by performing a unique classical music set. The look on guests faces when the waiters stopped what they were doing and started singing was unforgettable!

After dinner speaker and comedian Mick Miller provided plenty of laughs and then the evening’s entertainment was rounded off with the wonderful cabaret act The Wack Pack and their high energy show featuring top vocals, fantastic choreography and lots of audience interaction so everyone could party the night away on the dance floor.

As well as food, drink and entertainment, the 50th party was also an opportunity to raise funds for Dams chosen charities for 2017 – Alder Hey Children’s Hospital & the British Heart Foundation. The master of ceremonies for the evening Pete Price (from Radio City) was on hand to host fun games, an auction and a raffle with some great prizes to be won, and Dams were very thankful to our generous guests who helped raise over £7,200 for the charities.
“A company’s 50th anniversary doesn’t come around very often and we were delighted that so many of our customers and colleagues were able to attend our 50th celebrations in our home city of Liverpool” said Dams Managing Director Chris Scott: “The event was expertly organised and it was the perfect opportunity for us to celebrate this significant milestone and to thank our customers for their continued business and support.”

Let There be Human Centric Light

It feels like Autumn is already here with grey days and darker nights becoming the norm. Yet light is as important to health as a balanced diet or regular exercise.

The 24-hour recurring pattern of light and dark has shaped human beings and stimulates our body’s processes, so it has a huge impact on our performance, sleep and emotions.

LUCTRA® lamps are proven to have a biological effect on humans, particularly important when we lack exposure to natural light. LUCTRA® closely replicates daylight to stimulate high performance and support the feeling of wellbeing.


The multi-award winning cordless model FLEX features a timeless design and can be used anywhere without compromising on the quality of light.
