Elfingrove: new dates added!

Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum, Argyle Street, Kelvingrove, G3 8AG

NEW DATES ADDED: Elfingrove; experience Kelvingrove as never before - this Christmas, believe

This Christmas, Kelvingrove becomes Elfingrove.

Discover a world beyond your imagination: a place powered by the magic of elves. All you need to do to get there, is believe.

The world class production team behind GlasGLOW is turning Kelvingrove into Elfingrove, with a spellbinding night time tour of Glasgow’s best-loved museum, where the magic of Christmas is brought to life with an incredible finale. Outside, discover a winter wonderland with a Silent Snow Disco, street food, epic bar and all-singing, all-dancing surprises.

This Christmas, believe.
