Edinburgh is set to dazzle this February, with the launch of Edinburgh Lumen a stunning immersive visual and sound display that will brighten up the city centre’s dark winter nights.

Creating an aura of calm, the three unique installations will transform St Andrew Square, Assembly Rooms Lane and The Mound Precinct, into zen-like portals of tranquillity from 8 February to 11 March 2018.

Serenity Gardens will turn the green space of St Andrew Square into a peaceful haven with a bespoke lighting design touching every corner of the garden - from the trees and water features, to the flowerbeds and shrubbery. Accompanied by calming music, it will make for a peaceful escape, in the heart of the city centre.

Just off George Street, down the west lane of the Assembly Rooms, locals and visitors will find a spot to take five for themselves, in Moments Lane. Three tranquil animated scenes projected on to the lane’s walls will captivate the imagination of passersby.

The lane will be aglow with a countryside scene, complete with chirping birds and gently swaying trees and grass, joined by a coral reef paradise, submersing viewers in the peace and calm of the deep. Finally, a third scene of a clear dark night, crowned by the most beautiful phenomenon in nature, the Aurora Borealis.

The final show-stopping installation will transform Edinburgh’s Mound like never before, with a large immersive walkthrough light experience, set to create countless Instagram moments. Over five metres high and made up of 12,000 individual suspended lights, Ocean of Light measures 9 x 9 metres for people to walk through and interact.

Created and produced by NL Productions for the City of Edinburgh Council, Edinburgh Lumen celebrates the city in a more peaceful and reflective mood, complementing the city’s busy summer and December festivals. It will provide a unique experience for locals and visitors to enjoy for free during the dark winter nights.
