Garden Of Light - Walk The World Saturday 27 and Sunday 28 February 2010 For two nights in February 2010, visitors will be able to walk through the extensive grounds of the University Of Dundee Botanic Gardens and experience a spectacular display of light and sound. Taking inspiration from the impressive collections of plants from around the world, this event is themed to reflect and recreate some of the sounds of the continents and cultures of the world. Following on from the highly successful Garden of Light in February 2009, the 2010 event is expected to be very popular and will be significantly larger. For the first time the event will extend into the extreme eastern end of the garden to bring the Asian plant collections into full view. The Australian area has been expanded and new interactive elements will test the skills of young and old alike to create your own light shows.
