The festival begins with a free fireworks display celebrating St Andrews Day and features a water-themed sculpture trail by international light artists Aether and Hemera, who are exhibiting in Scotland for the first time.

As part of the celebrations, the A-Listed Linthouse building will also be animated for the first time in it’s 150 years, as part of the Light and Aerial Art Spectacular.

The event will also feature aerial acrobatic performances within the Museum, a community lantern parade and closing fireworks on Saturday 3rd December.

David Mann, Director of the Scottish Maritime Museum, said: “We have been overwhelmed with the support we have received to create a new national celebration for St Andrew’s Day events happening up and down the country, such as illumination: Harbour Festival of Light.

illumination which centres on beautiful, internationally commissioned design and complements our growing art collection, will be the perfect start to the festive season for visitors from Scotland and beyond.

An amazing, multi sensory celebration, we hope illumination goes on to grow into a must-see annual event.”
