Experience Glasgow’s Botanic Gardens as you’ve never seen them before, transformed by the imaginations behind the country’s biggest sound and light shows and the itison Drive-In Movies team.
Wander into another realm where dragons live on and worlds of light, sound and magic wait to be discovered with a finale that has to be seen to be believed.
Your journey will take around 90 minutes, though you’re welcome to stay longer with plenty to keep you entertained. To fuel your adventures, there’s firepits for toasting marshmallows; stalls with hot drinks (and hot toddies) to keep you warm as you explore; and a food village with plenty of gourmet goodies.
GlasGLOW is a Halloween experience that everyone will enjoy: families; couples; groups of friends; instagrammers who want to get some seriously impressive pictures; those on a quest to meet a dragon; movie fans who love the worlds dreamt up by Spielberg and Disney; people who don’t want to forget the 80s; and anyone and everyone who wants to see Glasgow in its best light (see what we did there?)

The world of GlasGLOW is brought to life in the beautiful Botanic Gardens in Glasgow.
The easiest way to get here with trains running every few minutes from the City Centre and Partick. The closest subway stations are Hillhead and Kelvinbridge, just a few minutes' walk from The Botanic Gardens.
The nearest train stations are Partick and Hyndland, approximately a 20 minute walk from the Botanic Gardens, with services running regularly throughout the day from both Glasgow Central and Glasgow Queen Street.
There are plenty of buses running from the City Centre to stops right outside The Botanic Gardens. For more information on a specific route, check the First Bus website.
Parking is extremely limited in the West End so we’d strongly encourage you to take public transport if you can. There is a small amount of on-street metered parking available on Queen Margaret Drive, and a car park a few minutes' walk away at Lilybank Gardens, just off Ashton Lane. There's also a taxi rank just outside The Botanic Gardens.
GlasGLOW is an idea we’ve dreamt of for over 10 years: an annual Halloween lighting event, the likes of which the heart of the city has never seen. And sometimes a spark becomes a GLOW.
Now, together with the world class teams from itison Drive-In Movies and some of the country’s biggest and best sound and light events, we finally feel ready to bring GlasGLOW to life.
