NEXT month sees the return of Electric Glen for its second year — and promises much more of the popular content that made 2013’s show a massive success.

The lighting festival will have a new route which, planners promise, will be as high calibre as last year’s event coupled with more artistic development and new, quirky installations. It will also be part of Homecoming Scotland 2014’s celebrations.

East Renfrewshire council leader Jim Fletcher said: “Electric Glen went down such a storm in February 2013, with 12,500 delighted attendees over a five-night run.

“The biggest complaint from 2013 was that many event lovers couldn’t get tickets.

“This year, we don’t want to disappoint anyone and are planning to run it over a longer period so we can accommodate more visitors.”

This year’s event sees the council once again team up with events company Culture Creative who planned the new route and promise even more amazing spectacle.

Creative producer Zoe Bottrell said: “Rouken Glen is a stunning, natural landscape and provides us with great material to create magical, illuminated events.

“We loved delivering a really fabulous event and we are delighted to be returning in 2014 with even more spectacular ideas, more performers, soundscapes and interactive installations for people to enjoy.

“We’re working with more commissioned artists this year in order to bring new visual and textural elements to explore a whole new aspect of Rouken Glen Park’s unique social history.”

Electric Glen runs from February 6-9 and 13-16.
