When you think of spring, flowers, sunshine and warm weather usually come to mind.

The Rose and Light Festival, held every June since 1931, is seen as one of the cultural highlights of the city’s summer calendar.

Enjoy the queen of the flowers by candlelight

During the festival, the botanical gardens are converted into a magical oasis of flowers which are illuminated by thousands of lanterns, tea lights and candles. The floral displays are accompanied by various live music and dance performances throughout the day. 

However, the main focal point of the festival is the queen of the flowers, the rose, as the event showcases a number of species, cultivars and rose hybrids.

Rose and Light Festival for the romantics at heart

This year’s festival programme includes guided tours, workshops and lectures, in addition to an entertaining programme for children. There will be stands offering food and drinks throughout the day and an impressive firework display serves as the grand finale to the festival, so be sure you arrive on time to secure a spot by the lake to watch the show!
