FINAL TICKETS: GlasGLOW, Botanic Gardens; nine portals have opened – Halloween 2019 will be like no other

A year in the making, GlasGLOW is back. Nine portals have opened; nine immersive worlds await. Halloween 2019 will be like no other.

Dive into the imaginations of the world’s leading light and sound experts and explore the Botanic Gardens as each world transports you to another dimension.

Expect a magical 60-90 minute journey that’s bigger, better and more interactive than ever before; a street food village; and a seriously impressive bar to cosy up with a drink and an unparalleled view.

Rave reviews from 2018

"Fantastic display. Lots of attention to detail. Really friendly staff. Liked the food stalls. Good sign posts. Great access as powerchair user. (slightly steep for some pushing a manual wheelchair). My 6 year old loved it and wants to go next year."

"It was amazing!! The effort that went into it made it so effective it was well put together and the quality and standard was really high. Thoroughly enjoyed it thank you and please do it again soon!!!"

“Everything was just magical from the girls at the gate to the clown. And the lightshow? Incredible. Bring on next year!”

"It was a wonderful experience, and what a lot of work had been put into it! I am almost 78 and enjoyed every moment of it. The headstones were brilliant. Well done Glasgow. Look forward to next year"

"Everyone was so welcoming and helpful. Light show was fantastic, especially the fields of light with the magnificent music coordination. The talking tree was so funny; quotes on the gravestones so witty and profound; and facilities were fantastic. We had a group of nine people and everyone had a marvellous time - thank you so much!”
