The Giant Lanterns of China - 1 Dec 2017 - 25 Feb 2018

A magical trail awaits...

This winter, RZSS Edinburgh Zoo will be home to The Giant Lanterns of China, an installation of over 450 dazzling giant lanterns that will illuminate the Zoo for 50 awe-inspiring nights.

Between 1 December 2017 to 25 February 2018, Edinburgh Zoo will become the only place

in Scotland to host such an event – lighting up Edinburgh’s skyline with the glow of bespoke, animal-themed lantern installations.

Visitors will be wowed by Chinese performers, enjoy wintery hot drinks and snacks and shop in our Christmas marketplace featuring hand-made crafts from Chinese artisans.

The partnership to create the lanterns stems from a long standing relationship between RZSS and Sichuan, the birth place of Edinburgh Zoo’s giant pandas.

Brought to you in partnership with the VYA Creative Lantern Company and DDM Entertainment and Events Inc.

Come along and enjoy an evening like no other at Edinburgh Zoo this winter.
