A giant Winter Lights display and Christmas Spectacle involving 3-D projections will light up the Grassmarket from tomorrow, Thursday 11 December.

Greater Grassmarket, in association with The Grassmarket Hotel, mclcreate and Edinburgh Arts Collective Projector Club, is hosting the large-scale 3D lights display on the corner of Victoria St and the Grassmarket tomorrow and Friday 12th December, and again on Thursday 18th – Friday 19th December.

The display will take place between 5pm and 8pm with live showings each evening at 6.30pm and 7.30pm.

Mamma’s Pizzeria will be providing complimentary mulled drinks and panzerotti mince pies for visitors on the night, and Red Dog Music is having a Christmas shopping evening with prizes, demos, festive munchies and live music.

The project was commissioned by Greater Grassmarket Business Improvement which has also provided local businesses with free LED light Christmas trees for outside their premises to help create a visual spectacle and attract visitors to the area.

Georgia Artus, Greater Grassmarket Project Manager, says: “The Winter Lights Spectacle will be fantastic and the combination of the Greater Grassmarket area’s heritage along with the vast array of unique shops, restaurants and bars makes it the perfect Christmas destination.”
