Night in the Garden 2014

Edinburgh's Royal Botanical Gardens will be lit up at night throughout November

Throughout most of November, Edinburgh’s Royal Botanic Garden is hosting its inaugural outdoor lighting festival. Visitors will be able to see the city’s celebrated gardens – which have been at their current Inverleith site since 1820 – illuminated against the night sky. ‘It’s about dark, it’s about light, it’s about shadow,’ said Malcolm Innes, joint lighting designer alongside Euan Winton. ‘And it’s about revealing these things that the ambient light washes away.’

Royal Botanic Garden, Edinburgh, Thu 30 Oct–Sun 23 Nov.

Night in the Garden

As darkness descends, follow a magical trail of light through the Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh. Some of the Garden's favourite features, like the Pond and the Victorian Palm House, will be used as the backdrop for extraordinary light effects.
