enLighten to light up Edinburgh

enLIGHTen is an exciting new event for Edinburgh that will fuse words and cutting edge technology to light up the night sky during March. Every evening from 6pm until Midnight, the dark streets will be lit up with massive dynamic projections on various city centre buildings.

The famous quotes from the Scottish Enlightenment period will illuminate buildings along George Street and Rose Street to spectacular effect.
