Every two years, Botanic D’Lights transforms Christchurch Botanic Gardens into a spectacle of illuminated artworks and innovative light installations.

Tree filled with lights

This year’s popular winter spectacle Botanic D’Lights 2020 Tīrama has been postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The event, which was scheduled for August, is now being planned for June 2021. However, this will depend on how the situation develops, with the Council continuing to take advice from the Ministry of Health.

We will be working closely with the artists, contractors and sponsors who are involved in this event on re-arrangements for next year.

Botanic D’Lights is developed and produced by Christchurch City Council.
