The Eden Project: Top Events in 2020

From musical spectacles to natural wonders...

The Eden Project is now famous all over the world for its vast species of plants, striking contemporary gardens and distinctive biomes that house the largest rainforest in captivity.

But aside from the wonders of nature that you can see all year, they also have a range of world class events. We’ve compiled a list of The Eden Project’s top events in 2020 below.

Top 2020 Eden Project Events for Music Lovers

If you haven’t heard of Eden Sessions before then you might want to add it to your bucket list. Not only does the music event welcome some huge names each year, but it's also a work of art in itself. Multi-coloured lights ignite the biomes, which results in something that looks nothing less than magical and due to the surrounding 'natural amphitheatre' the acoustics sound amazing too.
