Chinese Lanterns At St Giles’ Cathedral (22nd Jan – 01st Feb)

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.

Please check out the programme of free daytime events.
