Over the last few months, the 21cc Fireworks team has been busy planning, preparing and delivering some spectacular set pieces for a range of high profile, historic and exciting events around the country.
Queen’s Diamond Jubilee Beacons
21cc Fireworks were appointed as an official supplier of the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee Beacons developing and manufacturing beacons, which were distributed around the UK and abroad as part of the royal celebrations. Some notable torches included Edinburgh Castle and the Aberdare National Park in Kenya where the Queen was first informed of her fathers’ death, meaning she would become the next Monarch.
The Olympic Torch Relay
May and June saw the Olympic Torch touring the country, with 21cc Fireworks running ahead of it delivering a range of pyrotechnics for the Olympic Torch as it passed the waiting crowds, including firefalls, red white and blue colour splashes and posed set pieces with dignitaries.
VIP Celebrations & Weddings
At the same time, there have been a few special private parties around the country and some VIP wedding fireworks displays that we have had the privilege to present our shows at. These shows included enormous fountain set pieces with the Red Hot Chillie Pipers and spectacular fireworks displays to music to entertain the guests.
Festival Finales and Concerts
As the country has partied to the tunes of their favorite bands, the 21cc Fireworks team has been busy beavering away behind the scenes working on the stages preparing a range of special effects and pyrotechnics for the bands, such as Scouting for Girls, Pixie Lott and Madonna’s MDNA World Tour as well as building spectacular professional firework finales for festivals large and small, including one the UK’s biggest, T In The Park.
In July, we were delighted to have discovered we are Award Finalists at this year’s Scottish Events Awards for 3 categories:
- Event Service Supplier of the Year
- Sustainability Award
- Green Award
Over the last 12 months, company Director, Geoff Crow has been championing the ‘Green Revolution’ within the 21cc Fireworks team. Our event delivery has never been so sustainably focused. From day-to-day office work, site work, show design, debris management and transport.
Nibakure Children’s Village
Over the last few months, we have become a major sponsor of the Nibakure Children’s Village project in Rwanda, where we have provided financial funding and resources to support the building of schools, homes and education facilities for the child-led families. To date we have managed to send $5,400 for the project. Some of the 21cc Fireworks team have also visited the project in Rwanda to support the work.
