21CC Group, a Scottish-based events producer, has launched Wondrous Woods, an outdoor sound, lighting and effects event. It will take place in the grounds of Hopetoun Estate from October 21 until November 15.

The lighting trail will comprise a two kilometre route. 

Geoff Crow, director of 21CC Group, said:”‘We feel it is important to deliver an event that appeals to all, whilst offering a safe environment for the public. The Hopetoun trail offers us a spectacular environment, really like no other, with a fantastic amount of ground space, which allows us to safely bring this event to life this year for all to enjoy. 

“The events industry has been hit hard by COVID-19, and it is imperative that safe events continue to be planned and delivered, not only for the survival of the industry as a whole, but also to keep public engaged. Added to this, we are recognising the positive economic impact this will have on the local area and beyond and the potential revenue generation for other local businesses.”

The Earl of Hopetoun commented: “We are delighted to be the venue for the inaugural Wondrous Woods; it is thrilling for me to see the grounds come to life with all the creative lighting and effects that are planned.  This is an exciting time, as we develop our vision for Hopetoun and create new event spaces following such a difficult year for us all.”

21CC Group has worked extensively with the Hopetoun House team for many years, working in partnership with the estate for the delivery of the highly successful Hopetoun Fireworks and Bonfire event, as well as the delivery of multiple large-scale corporate events both within the house and the grounds.
