The project brief was to design, supply, install, manage and maintain an enchanted walk for the Royal Botanic Gardens Edinburgh. This included Lighting, sound and interactive special effects.
We won the project due to our previous successful 2 years doing the event along with Unique Events.
We brought in top designers; Grant Anderson, Claire McKenzie and Ross Blair to help us with this event.

Working in a renowned botanical garden brought a few challenges, as expected. We had to make sure that the plants and wildlife were disturbed as little as possible and be respectful to the surroundings. We did have a few issues with badgers nibbling on our cables!
The event brought in a lot of visitors to the gardens and was an exciting innovative night of fun for all the family.
