Repositioning ceiling lights

Hi, please give me some advice. My lounge has two small light fittings that are equally spaced on the ceiling. I would like to have them removed and replaced with one centre light that I can have as more of a feature. What’s the best way of removing one set of light wiring and moving the other set across into the centre of the room? Thanks.

Simple enough job if there is access above, depending on the way the joists run may even be possible from downstairs!

Easy enough to do if ceiling has void. About 3 hours work. Price range £70 - £110

Existing circuit can be moved however usually results in the ceiling needing light repairs after unless the is good access from above

It's not necessary to lift boards above - it's just easier. There's other methods that be used but without knowing if the ceiling is plaster board or lathe & plaster, height etc it's not so easy to quote.

I agree with replys above easy if acess from above, a few hours work. If not acessable then small 5" holes can be cut into ceiling and patched up later. Of course this would only really work if it's plastered not artex. It's very hard to match artex.
