Shine: The 2015 Edinburgh Christmas Tree Festival

December 11, 2015 - December 24, 2015

SHINE!
The sixth Edinburgh Christmas Tree Festival at St Andrew’s and St George’s West
SHINE! will run from 11-24 December 2015, offering space for wonder and reflection in Edinburgh City Centre.

SHINEPosterSpend time admiring the trees, each decorated by different hands, add a thought to our Tree of Remembrance, or write a message to someone in prison for standing up for human rights.

You can enjoy live music most days  from local musicians, choirs  and schools.

SHINE is open Monday-Saturday 10am – 4pm, with a special late opening until 9pm on Thursday 17 December.

On Friday 18 December at 6pm come along to our famous Carols at Six concert with choir and orchestra.

Entry is FREE but donations are welcome and shared between three charities. This year our charities are Amnesty International, Circle and Firsthand Lothian.

Amnesty International UK, works to protect people’s human rights wherever justice, freedom, truth and dignity are denied, helping to create a safer, more just world.

Circle aims to promote the social inclusion of families with children marginalised by poverty and discrimination. Circle’s purpose is to improve the lives of children by strengthening families.

Firsthand Lothian supports vulnerable and disadvantaged families and children and young people with disabilities across Edinburgh to become more resilient and achieve their full potential.
