When is GlasGLOW 2022?

It will run from 26 October – 6 November.

What’s the GlasGLOW theme this year?

The show is an ‘epic dinosaur adventure into The Land That Time Forgot.’

This year’s GlasGLOW will take guests on an exhilarating 60 minute outdoor route through the Botanic Gardens where jeopardy lies around every corner, dinosaurs come to life, dormant volcanos threaten to erupt and only the brave will make it out, without being eaten alive.

Created and produced by itison, alongside a team of world class creative sound, light and set designers, GlasGLOW is an immersive outdoor experience like no other that’s jam packed with photo opportunities, exciting displays, interactive installations, a street food village, GLOW bar and the return of Marshmallowland.

Creator of GlasGLOW and itison CEO, Oli Norman, said: “I wrote this year’s story whilst on a family trip to the Isle of Skye during the pandemic. Discovering the dinosaur fossils on the North of the island with my kids was amazing. This year’s show imagines what would happen if those dinosaurs roamed Glasgow today.

“Our goal each year is to light up to the dark months, do positive work in the community and deliver a world class show – we can’t wait to show you what we have planned this year.”

The itison Pumpkin Fund will also return too having raised £30,000 for local charities in 2021, spreading pumpkin joy around the city and donating over 2,000 tickets to local community organisations, hospitals and charities.

Now coming into its fifth year, GlasGLOW is the biggest Halloween event in the UK creating 150 event sector jobs and contributing an estimated £6M into the local economy.
