Lighting up Scotland

We are inviting you to light up your favourite part of Scotland. The award-winning creative team at Pidgin Perfect are creating a map of Scotland for the Foyer of Rockvilla which will be lit by beautiful translucent Beacons each chosen by a supporter.

Whilst the physical map will live in Rockvilla, this digital version means you can interact with it from wherever you are in the world. You can light up your hometown, a beautiful beach, a family holiday spot, or the place where you saw your favourite National Theatre of Scotland production. Wherever you’d like to light up, we’d love you to be part our constellation of support. You can buy your Beacon online here or download this form to pay in monthly instalments

Find your Beacon

The key below lists all of the Beacons that have been purchased and you can click on each to learn more about who has lit them up and why.

Thank you to all our amazing supporters.
