Chinese Lanterns At St Giles’ Cathedral

Following last year’s spectacular presentation of Luke Jerram’s ‘Museum of the Moon’ and in celebration of Burns Night and Chinese New Year falling on the 25th January, a stunning Chinese lantern installation has been created to transform Edinburgh’s famous St Giles’ Cathedral with a canopy of over 400 lanterns.

An evening illumination and soundtrack will create a spectacular sensory experience along with a programme of daytime and evening performance and events. Programme of events to be announced.
