See Life Illuminated

The Magical Lantern Festival Birmingham is back due to exceptional demand with all new lanterns for 2018!

This year’s Christmas themed Lantern Festival will illuminate the gardens turning it into a spectacular fusion of dual culture, vibrant colours and artistic sculptures. Prepare to enter a magical experience and discover life-sized and large-than-life lanterns in all shapes and forms.

We promise visitors a truly amazing experience, a visual feast of light and illumination, hidden amongst the grandeur of Birmingham Botanical Gardens, which lends itself perfectly to the layout of the lanterns with its combination of woodland, gardens and pathways.

The festival is open Thursdays to Sundays each week and then open every day during the school Christmas holidays from Friday 21st Dec. Opening from 5pm to 10pm each day with last entry at 9pm. Children aged 3 and under enter free and do not need ticket.
