Christmas Nights
Edinburgh Zoo


Conserving nature 
with festive fun 


We partnered with the Royal Zoological Society for Scotland (RZSS), to deliver Christmas Nights at Edinburgh Zoo, a festive experience for families, balancing entertainment with animal welfare and conservation goals.

The primary objective was to create a memorable Christmas experience for visitors while ensuring the safety and well-being of the animals residing at Edinburgh Zoo. The event aimed to generate vital income to support RZSS’ conservation and education efforts, particularly during the challenges of the Covid-19 pandemic.

The event was delivered on a partnership basis with both NL Productions and RZSS assuming risk and both being involved in the design and conception.

The theme centred around transforming the zoo into a Christmas wonderland, featuring dazzling lights, projections, and themed decorations, evoking the spirit of the holiday season.

Special attention was given to minimize disruptions to the animals' routines and habitats. Lighting and sound installations were strategically positioned to avoid disturbing sensitive species, and pathways were designed to ensure visitors' movement did not encroach upon animal enclosures. The event was also designed to protect human visitors, accounting for stringent safety measures to restrict the spread of Covid-19.

Christmas Nights at Edinburgh Zoo was a resounding success, achieving its objectives while receiving positive feedback from visitors and stakeholders alike. The event generated substantial revenue, which was instrumental in funding vital conservation projects and educational programs at the zoo.
