I'm installing downlights in a kitchen refurbishment. How can I link the lights, the switch and the mains without using a junction box because, when finished, all this will be in the ceiling void space and inaccessible. There must be some sort of in-line connector that would equate to a ceiling rose, or am I looking at terminal-block connectors in a suitable container?

Use some mf connectors in an enclosure that is small enough to come down through the downlight hole.

You can get little plug/socket designed to be small enough to go through the downlights hole.
the lights are wired in a radial fashion. Not a central jb out to each fitting

Thanks guys. Pretty much that's what I'd expected. I'll check the size of the downlight hole and take it from there.
 
I use these just leave a fair bit of cable length so that you can get the box out the hole afterwards.
