The Eden Project at Night

The Eden Project at night was simply spectacular.

During A TIME OF GIFTS, the Eden Project produced a magical winter transformation (between November 2004 and early February 2005), with dramatic night-time effects in the biomes, and which has been produced in one form or another every winter since. There was an eerie jungle soundscape in the Tropical Biome, with all the lights reflecting off the inside of the biome like stars, and there were dancers and performers in the Warm Temperate Biome. The outdoor landscape was littered with braziers, lanterns... and ice skating! This Winter Spectacle is now repeated every year!

As dusk fell over Eden and the new ice skating "biome", the view transformed from this...

to this...

...and Eden Nights awaken!

While outside, the night-time Biomes beckoned...

The Tropical Biome

With the sounds of the jungle at night, the plants and dampness all around, the animals calling, the cool night-time warmth, and the lights reflecting like stars overhead, it was hard not to imagine that you were really there... and not in an old china clay quarry in Cornwall!

The Warm Temperate Biome

...where there were musicians, dancers, performers, and more stars overhead! A cool Mediterranean evening full of fun and music - a far cry from the cold December night outside!
