Sensory guide

We want to make GlasGLOW as inclusive and sensory friendly as possible.

Our sensory guide tries to give guidance on the sights, sounds, smells and space to expect in each area – without giving away any surprises. We hope it’ll be of help to autistic people or anyone with other sensory processing difficulties who may appreciate a bit more info on what to expect before attending.

Please note that some of the details may change.

Disabled access and facilities

Our route is fully hardstanding so prams, wheelchairs and mobility scooters are welcome – please note some paths in the Botanics have gradual inclines.

Disabled toilets are available at the event – we’ll also have a Pamiloo on the 4th/5th & 6th of November.

We have a small number of Blue Badge Parking spaces on Queen Margaret Drive in front of the Botanics – these are available on a first come first served basis to try and help as many people as possible. You must display your Blue Badge and have a valid GlasGLOW ticket.

Carer tickets

A disabled person purchasing a ticket may bring one essential carer free of charge – to request a ticket, please email with your voucher number and a copy of your ID.
