The Project

Stripe Communications approached us one week before the launch of The Spa at The Principal Edinburgh Charlotte Square. The hotel, formerly known as The Roxburghe, has gone under an extensive £25m refurbishment and the new spa marks the completion of the works.

We offered creative support to highlight the features of the new gym, cardio suite, swimming pool and treatment rooms. In the fitness studio we worked with Narcissus Flowers to create a feature fusion of lighting, floral displays and gym equipment. We wanted to continue the elegant theme we created from the initial launch of the full hotel back in September.

Key Project Steps

  • We worked closely with the client and other event suppliers to produce a design fitting to the space and theme.
  • The team sensitively installed the equipment around the workings of the busy city centre hotel.
  • Efficient removal of the equipment after the event, we left the site clear on the same night ready for the spa to be back in full operation the next morning.


Black Light regularly work with the team at Stripe Communications to deliver events that stand out from the crowd. Whatever the size or scale of the event, our professional team will give pay their full expertise to the project, ensuring we push the boundaries to a level that will blow expectations.
