The magical outdoor after-dark spectacular is returning for a magnificent seventh year with new installations from around the world and a fresh route, again running for six weeks, a total of 37 nights, this year from November 16 to December 30.
It will once again transform the Garden by illuminating one of the city’s most beautiful visitor attractions with a one-mile illuminated trail,
New installations already confirmed for 2023 include Crocus, created by leading designers of illuminated flowers, Jigantics, who were behind the stunning Lilies on the Botanic Pond in 2022.
This meadow of 100 crocuses, measuring in at over a metre high, will gently sway and transform through different shades of colour in time to enchanting music.
Pampas is another new highlight, created by TILT, a French artistic studio founded in 2001 that focuses on the exploration of light and its interplay with art, architecture and space.
In this installation, visitors can explore the groves of luminous pampas plants which are animated with bright colours.
Light a Wish, created by OGE Group, courtesy Light Art Collection, promises to be another showstopper – it visualises the moment dandelion seeds disperse in the air, taking your wish with them into the world.
Popular returning favourites include the spectacular Christmas Cathedral and the Inverleith House projection.
All the installations are low in energy and selected to be sympathetic to the Botanics’ environment. Commenting, Regius Keeper of the Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh Simon Milne said: “Part of the joy of the trail is for visitors to be in the Garden after dark and to experience and enjoy a new perspective on our plants and landscapes.
“The Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh is a Scottish charity, and tickets sales from Christmas at the Botanics help to fund our international plant research, conservation work and education programmes.
“We are more mindful than ever that the festive season can be costly, so the introduction of off-peak lower-cost tickets this year will enable event more people to join us for this fabulous show without breaking the bank.”
Christmas at the Botanics is one of nine illuminated trails staged across the UK by leading events promoter Raymond Gubbay Limited, a division of Sony Music.
It is presented in partnership with the Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh and creative producer Culture Creative.
