Bringing Festive Cheer to the City of Edinburgh

Bringing Festive Cheer to the City of Edinburgh

Despite the cancellation of Edinburgh’s Christmas Festival, we’ve turned the city’s lights up a gear to bring festive cheer to the residents of Edinburgh.

We are delighted to have partnered with the City of Edinburgh Council, Essential Edinburgh and Unique Events to install a huge range of festive lighting displays throughout the city. Installation began in October to ensure that the lights are ready to be switched on, for what traditionally would have been Edinburgh light night on Sunday 22nd November.

We have installed many trees throughout the city, dressing them with over 25,000 LED lights; stretching over 3000 metres in length.

The pinnacle of the trees being the beautiful Mound Tree which stands proud at 18 metres high. The new cross street displays on Victoria Street and Cockburn Street are a beautiful welcome addition, as are the new residents of Princes Street Gardens – a lovely family of reindeer.
