Deck the Halls
Every Christmas brings inpsirational ideas, our favourite this year is the Giant Advent Calendar in Edinburgh. The brilliant idea of the impressarios at Underbelly who are responsible for the Edinburgh Festival, to name but a few event. The calendar charts some of the key moments in the city’s history, including the building of the Scott Monument, opening of the Scottish Parliament buildings and the ascent of the first air balloon in the UK! With all events set in winter, the projections also celebrate great Scottish traditions such as the Loony Dook as well as international ones such as the 12 Days of Yule or decorating of Christmas trees. Presented to a soundscape reflecting the year, the Giant Advent Calendar supports the end of 2017 as the Year of History, Heritage and Archaeology.
