Be transported back to a time where roar-some, weird and wonderful creatures roamed the Earth. Discover 570 million years of wildlife, from when the origins of life appeared as a dazzling array of tiny microbes, to a world where dinosaurs were born and the ice age gave way to the forgotten giants of the animal kingdom.
With an extended route for 2019 and over 600 brand-new lanterns, there’s more to explore this year as Giant Lanterns return to Edinburgh Zoo from 15 November to 26 January 2020.
This is the third year of the Giant Lanterns event which continues to dazzle and delight. The event stems from a long standing relationship between RZSS and Sichuan, the birth place of Edinburgh Zoo’s giant pandas.
Giant Lanterns: Lost Worlds is brought to you in partnership with the VYA Creative Lantern Company and DDM Entertainment and Events Inc.
