21CC Group has recently unveiled a new project delivered in partnership with The City of Edinburgh Council and Edinburgh College.   

The creative lighting design company were appointed to transform the iconic Granton Gas Holder tower into one of Scotland’s biggest works of art, while providing opportunities for students at Edinburgh College to work on a live creative project.   

Geoff Crow (Director, 21CC Group) comments: “In a year where the event industry as a whole suffered greatly due the significant economic and social impact of Covid, this collaboration is significant on so many different levels, and a true symbol of hope at such a critical time. We are really looking forward to supporting the college further by taking some of these students and working to immerse them in some of our larger events later on in the year too.”  

The spectacular launch showcased the brand-new lighting displays at Granton Gas Holder in all its glory. The tower has been an important fixture of Edinburgh’s Waterfront for over a century, and the launch itself marked the beginning of a vital regeneration project undertaken by The City of Edinburgh Council, with the display proudly illuminating the skyline for a period of up to two years.
