Event details
Venue: 
George Street

The Street of Light, which launched on the Royal Mile in 2015, is back for Edinburgh's Christmas 2016 in a new location on West George Street.

The Street of Light opens on 20 November as part of Edinburgh's Light Night, then runs from 21 November to 24 December, with two performances at 6pm and 8pm each night.

Over 60,000 lights will be synchronised to music from local choirs and bands including the Edinburgh Festival Chorus, Royal Scottish National Orchestra Junior Chorus, Blazin’ Fiddles, and bhangra group Tigerstyle.

The organisers say that this year people are being encouraged to join in singing and dancing.
