Sponsoring the world's biggest and most spectacular fireworks concert
A feast of pageantry and patriotism celebrating the Jubilee and echoing the Festival’s Shakespearean offerings saw the Virgin Money Fireworks Concert bring the Edinburgh International Festival 2012 to a close with a royal crescendo.
Over 100,000 fireworks, tonnes of explosives and hundreds of firing sequences launched from Edinburgh's iconic castle were intricately designed to enhance the music from the Scottish Chamber Orchestra.
Around a quarter of a million people gather every year across the city and beyond to share in the grand Festival finale.
