I think that's a T18 (T25) T18 (T25) Theatre Lamp 240V 500W £9.13 IN STOCK (1 Mar 2013)
Edit - it's difficult to tell the exact type needed! Do you not have a similar unit with the lamp still inside?

I assume you don't have the original bulb to use as an example?
Hold the doffing! A measurement with a micrometer or similar may help to get the exact model, the pin spacing differs like so:
All About Bulbs | Lighting Universe
Bi-Pin Bases have two contact points which protrude from the base. The diameter of a Bi-Pin base is measured as the distance in millimeters between the two pins. For instance, a GY6.25 base has a distance of 6.25mm between the two pins.
The one linked to is a 500W GY9.5.
Yeah I'd not max it out, 650W is sooo much juice, only fit that if you really need to (IMO). Go for long-life if possible. Blue Aran will be one of the cheapest suppliers, they're decent in my experience.
If you are Birmingham based I would give Central Theatre Supplies a call, they should have these lamps in stock!

Blue Aran are OK, but if you want several, I'd try Mico, 10 out of 10, or Specialist Lamp Distributors. <£10 is a reasonable price for one-off.
I'd have gone with a 650w T26/27, in fact I've never actually seen a quartet use a 500w T25! 650w really isn't that much power - if you have any ambient light I'd say that was the minimum you should use, 500w will disappear especially if you use any colour with it.
Used to have a bunch of those lamps, I thought they had been given away ( along with 5 DMX dimmers! and some other gr8 lamps) as he thought they were not needed..
I have been told though that they have actual been found in one of our storage facilities, although possibly damp.
