One of the only shows set to go ahead this year, the illuminated trail will be operating at reduced capacity, so you’ll want to set your alarms to bag tickets for the family-friendly show at Glasgow’s Botanic Gardens.
Back with a brand-new show running from 29th October – 9th November, GlasGLOW will spectacularly transform the Botanic Gardens into an immersive superhero story. In a world of darkness and gloom, heroes will rise up and discover their own superpowers. This year, it’s time for you to discover the power within and become the hero of your own story.
Using world class sound and lighting, the illuminated trail will transport families to other worlds including: The Origin Story, The Source of Power, Power up Time, Meet your Nemesis and The Power Within.
Oli Norman, CEO of itison and GlasGLOW creator, said: “Now more than ever, we believe in the power of communities coming together, and we’re proud to be able to give friends and families a safe way to get together, and something to look forward to.
“From walks in the park at the start of lockdown, to outdoor attractions like zoos and safari parks, we believe that getting together outdoors is the way forward, and we’re working hard to create an event that’s safe for everyone.”
Glasgow based company itison have been working closely with the Scottish Government, Event Scotland and Glasgow City Council to guarantee a safe and fun GlasGLOW with new measurements including:
• A fully outdoor event with one-way system
• Reduced capacity and staggered arrival times starting from 5pm until 9.15pm every day
• Widened paths and removal of any pinch points
• Dedicated COVID safety officer
