In 2013, two specialist imaging and events companies - Immedia Imaging and Dreamtime Events – joined forces to become Magenta Star. We provide the same great services, products and support that we’ve always done - only now we’re doing it together.
Dreamtime was originally founded in 1998, and over a quarter of a million children and their families visit our grottos over every Christmas season.
Immedia was originally part of Eastman Kodak Company's digital photography business, and has been providing digital photography systems to a wide range of visitor attractions since 2002.
We are Kodak's exclusive Authorised Service Provider for the UK and Ireland; and a member of the British Association of Leisure Parks, Piers and Attractions (BALPPA)
