PopUP Lighting at The Causey

posted 8 Mar 2011, 03:32 by South Edinburgh Net Admin
In a flash, or flashmob, 50 torchbearers will be spectacularly lighting up part of Edinburgh’s South Side, banishing the gloom of winter and showing some of our great buildings in a new light.

The Causey Development Trust, in collaboration with professional lighting designers, has created this event to highlight the historic significance of these buildings and the potential of The Causey as a place for people where community events happen. The event also draws attention to the history and cultural significance of this part of the South Side of Edinburgh on the edge of the World Heritage site.

Torchbearers are local people, residents and members of local community groups, Causey supporters, and students, mainly from Edinburgh and Napier University.

The event begins with advice to “guerrilla” torchbearers at the South Side Community Centre then moves to the site for the lighting up.

But which buildings will receive the “treatment”?

If you are in Buccleuch Street at the junction with West Crosscauseway between 7.45pm and 8.30pm on Wednesday 9 March you will see the spectacular result!
