Oli Norman, Elfingrove creator and itison CEO said: “We’re so excited to be creating the ice experience that Glasgow deserves this Christmas and putting us on the map with the greatest cities around the world. We’re busy finalising all the details and can’t wait to show you everything we’ve got in store.

“Unfortunately, today we had to take the difficult decision to postpone the Elfin Trail for 2021. In the short few weeks since announcing our magical trail, the global and local supply chain has become increasingly difficult and deteriorated beyond any of our predictions.

“It is really disappointing but the right decision with everything going on out with our control and means we can focus on delivering the most epic ice experience Glasgow has had in years.

“Tickets go on sale for the Ice Experience this Wednesday at 7.30am and we hope you’ll come and see the amazing ice adventure that awaits.”
