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.
A magical trail awaits, where you will discover beautifully crafted lanterns, rich with colour and character. You will see colossal Chinese lanterns, such as the dragon, temple and zodiac signs, alongside over 200 animal themed lanterns including giant pandas, lions and penguins.
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.
