'World-class' £500k Halloween light show coming to Glasgow
GlasGLOW is being brought to the city by the team behind itison Drive In Movies.
Glasgow's Botanic Gardens are to be transformed into a magical world of light and fantasy this Halloween.
The brand-new outdoor experience, described as "Spielsberg-esque with a nod to 80s nostalgia" is being brought to Glasgow from the team behind itison Drive In Movies.
CEO of itison and west end resident, Oli Norman, is investing £500,000 to launch the project to create a "world class spectacular that will put Glasgow on the map as the home of Halloween".
The event will run from October 27 to November 4, when the clocks change and the dark nights start to draw in.
Organisers expect tens of thousands to attend the event that will take them through an immersive landscape of light and sound, weaving together installations that will "surprise and delight" as the story comes to light.
"I've had the idea for GlasGLOW for over a decade and it's now time to bring it to life," Mr Norman said.
"We've assembled a world-class lighting and technical team to bring a vision to life that will mesmerise adults and kids alike.
"Imagine Stranger Things met Game of Thrones in a beautiful Glasgow garden - it's going to be pretty fantastical!"
Being based in the west end himself, the dad-of-two says it is important to have "brilliant" things happening in the city.
He added: "We're lucky that as a business we're now in the position to take our idea and turn it into a reality."
Tickets will be released later this month exclusively on itison.
