Christmas at the Eden Project is now in full swing with the spectacular Shadows and Light programme on every evening this week and returning next week.

There is also still time to catch Father Christmas and his elves’ magical show with extra slots added tonight and tomorrow (Monday and Tuesday, December 17 and 18).

Eden was closed for part of Saturday due to flooding following torrential rain. The site fully re-opened on Sunday.

Shadows and Light is the all-new after-dark extravaganza featuring mesmerising displays of colour, light and music across Eden.

It is on from 5pm to 8pm every night this week including Sunday, December 23, and returns on Thursday, December 27 through to Sunday, December 30.

Because of some Father Christmas performances having to be cancelled on Saturday, additional shows have now been put on tonight (Monday December 17) and tomorrow (Tuesday December 18) at 7.30pm.

There is also availability for daytime performances from today until Thursday December 20.

Gordon Seabright, Eden’s Chief Executive, said: “Saturday was a big challenge due to the flooding and we’re sorry that some visitors missed out on a visit that day. 

“The team worked incredibly hard to re-open the site on Saturday evening. It’s great to be fully open again so quickly so that everyone can enjoy our magical Christmas programme.”

Shadows and Light sees the Rainforest and Mediterranean Biomes, outdoor gardens and Core building transformed into ever-changing landscapes of light, shadows, music and soundscapes.

Highlights include Halo – dancing columns of light and colour in the Arena – and ‘Echoes’ The Weather-Makers, filling the Rainforest Biome with mist, haze and a choral soundscape. There is also a glowing laser forest in the Mediterranean Biome and the beautiful Twelve Part Winter illuminating the Infinity Blue sculpture in the Core education centre with light and music.

Shadows and Light is included in the price of admission but bookings are required to see Father Christmas and for ice-skating, with extra charges applying.
