The Kelpies and The Falkirk Wheel Lighting Requests

As two of Scotland’s most iconic landmarks, The Kelpies and The Falkirk Wheel are frequently asked to support a wide range of events and occasions, from charitable awareness days to sporting achievements, usually by displaying a certain colour on a given date in coordination with other landmarks.

We receive a huge number of lighting requests each month but unfortunately are unable to support all of them. In order to ensure we don’t diminish the impact of lighting The Kelpies and The Falkirk Wheel and, in turn, the benefits to the good causes we support, we try to limit our light ups to once per month. See below for available months. 

In order to assist in the decision making process, please complete the form below so we can consider your request. If The Kelpies or The Falkirk Wheel have been lit up for your cause previously, please note that we will be unlikely to grant your application in order to use the sculptures to promote as many causes as possible.
