WELCOME TO  MAGICAL LANTERN FESTIVAL SCOTLAND

Magical Lantern Festival Scotland makes its debut this year following amazing tours and hugely successful festivals in London, Yorkshire and Birmingham! The stunning landscaped grounds of Botanic Gardens in Glasgow plays host to the festival.

This year's Christmas themed Lantern Festival will illuminate the park turning it into a spectacular fusion of dual culture, vibrant colours and artistic sculptures! Prepare to enter a magical experience and discover life-size and larger-than-life lanterns in all shapes and forms, from a magnificent giant 'Chinese Dragon' to a giant lantern recreation of 'Scottish Bagpipes'.  

The festival will not only wow visitors with its beautiful hand-sculpted lanterns, the entertainment area adds another dimension to this wonderful night out with a food and drink area, tipi bar, Santa's Grotto, a handful of fairground rides for children and merchandise marquee where visitors can buy a souvenir of their experience to take home. There is no better family-friendly festival to visit this Christmas.....

Lights! Camera! Instagram filter! The UK’s answer to China’s New Year’s lantern festival returns, this time to Chiswick House Gardens, with more than 50 glowing installations on a Silk Road theme (not the drugs darknet; the original one, the ancient trade network linking Asia to the west). Expect plenty of animals (including pandas) and the odd admiral’s ship.
