Lennon Stella Announces 2020 Dates

Lennon Stella has announced her 2020 tour and has released her new single ‘Kissing Other People’ via Insanity Records! The song was written by Lennon Stella, Caroline Ailin, Simon Wilcox and Captain Cuts and produced by Captain Cuts and Malay. ‘Kissing Other People’ will be featured on Lennon’s forthcoming debut album and is her first single since collaborating with The Chainsmokers and ILLENIUM on their summer anthem ‘Takeaway.’

Of the new single, Lennon Stella says: “This song came to life last summer in Cabo at a writing camp with all of my favourite writers and producers. Caroline Ailin and I were in an Uber driving home from a club and she asked me about boys. I said to her something about finally feeling like I was at a place where I could kiss someone else and not feel sorry about it or feel like I was doing something wrong. The next day in her session she started ‘Kissing Other People’ and then it turned into what it is."

Tickets go on sale Friday 8th November at 9am.

Christmas at Belton

28 November– 30 December 2019

For the very first time at Belton the tree-tops will glisten and the gardens will shimmer and sparkle. It's definitely the most wonderful time of the year to wander beneath historic tree canopies drenched in seasonal colour and dripping with shards of light, frosty snowflakes, stars and baubles.

As you walk through a towering Tunnel of Light festooned with over 100,000 pea-lights, the mesmerising voices of the Singing Trees can be heard in the distance. There are hidden surprises too – pause alongside the mirror pool reflections and glimpse the sculptural Fire Garden as it flickers and crackles. The formal gardens spring to life with topiary trees lavishly draped in pea-lights that flicker in time to much-loved festive classics.

For the young ones in all of us there are traditional Victorian fairground rides* in the Estate Yard and don’t forget to catch a glimpse of Father Christmas and his elves. Have a holly, jolly Christmas and complete your walk under the stars with spiced cider, mulled wine or hot chocolate.

See the new trailer below and take a glimpse into the world of sparkle.

Christmas at the Botanics

22 November – 29 December

The much-anticipated winter trail returns to the world-famous Royal Botanic Gardens, Edinburgh, now in its third year.

Along the route for 2019 you will notice exciting new installations; step into a Laser Garden where lines of light playfully bounce across the branches; enjoy the Festive Flotilla as hundreds of glowing boats gently bob on the shimmering surface and walk between larger-than-life icicles and neon spiral trees rising high into the night sky.

Returning also is the dazzling Tunnel of Light that sparkles with thousands of pea-lights and the mesmerising Scented Fire Garden. No Botanics trail would be complete without the Festive Finale at Inverleith House where brightly coloured projections dance in time to much-loved Christmas classics. Also, look out for Santa and his elves along the way.

Complete your walk under the stars with a cup of spiced cider, mulled wine or tempting treats. Alternatively, enjoy the seasonal menu on offer at the John Hope Gateway Restaurant.

See Tickets Launches Secure Digital Tickets

See Tickets has launched highly secure and non-transferable digital tickets as the next step in its ongoing commitment to combat the secondary market.    

Each digital ticket features a dynamically refreshing barcode which is uniquely tied to a customer’s user account, mobile device and See Tickets app. Digital tickets will be used for the first time this week when tickets for Declan McKenna’s tour go on sale.

Rob Wilmshurst, CEO at See Tickets said: “The launch of digital tickets is a major milestone in our persistent anti-secondary market strategy as we now have a secure ticketing solution we can offer to our clients to use at any venue, on any show. We hate touts.”
