Spotlight on East Ren for another Electric Glen spectacular

editorial image

Wrap up warm and grab your tickets — it’s time to see Rouken Glen Park in a whole new light.

Electric Glen is back on after months of anticipation, following on from the last show in 2014 and promising ever more spectacular sights and sounds, courtesy of the creative director behind The Tower of London’s ceramic poppies.

Phil Supple has teamed up with those responsible for The Enchanted Forest in Pitlochry — and promises to reveal what links Rouken Glen with Borneo, taking visitors back some 450 million years, before the park’s tectonic plates moved.

The event will also look to the Crum family, who lives and owned Rouken Glen and the Thornliebank print works, as Phil has uncovered the original pattern designs from 1814. The winter festival runs February 4-7 and 10-14, and tickets (£10 adult and £8 concession with family tickets available) are available from www.electricglen.co.uk.

Ticketholders are also invited to show theirs to participating restaurants nearby for dine-around deals throughout January and February.
