Get Your Glow On

Get Your Glow On At Glasgow

Set to be one of the highlights of the city’s event calendar this year, GlasGLOW is the brainchild of the same team that brought you itison Drive In Movies and looks like it’s going to be just as popular. 

Instead of the scary antics that Halloween usually hails, GlasGLOW brings a little bit of sparkle, a dash of modern art and a whole load of entertainment to the West End. Set in the beautiful Botanic Gardens (handily, our next door neighbour) the evening is a treat for the eyes and ears. Essentially a sound and light installation, 80s, Speilberg-esque beats provide the backdrop to a spectacular light-show which highlights some of the Gardens’ horticultural highpoints and uncovers hidden corners not usually explored by visitors. 

This magical event is running from October 27th until November 4th and in our previous blog, we unveiled the news that we’ve got two tickets to give away to one lucky reader, plus they’ll get a free night’s stay at the Ambassador Hotel to boot! GlasGLOW is expected to attract tens of thousands of visitors so if you’re coming from out of town and not lucky enough to win a free night at our residence, then get your reservation in early – given that the Botanic Gardens are less than a five-minute walk away from our door, we are expecting to be a popular choice for those looking for accommodation.

At the Ambassador Hotel, you can book room configurations to suit your party, from single to family-sized. We also offer a full Scottish breakfast and a supremely comfortable night’s sleep. Resting on the banks of the River Kelvin, we’re in a quiet spot, perfect for relaxing after an evening of fun at this inspiring event. For food and drink options, just ask one of our friendly staff members or head over to our Blog or Your Stay pages where you’ll find a huge range of recommendations and hot tips for where best to wine and dine. If you have little ones in tow, the morning after calls for a quick visit to the Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum, which has a variety of interactive permanent exhibitions as well as full program of special events. 

So, if you want to celebrate Halloween in alternative style this year, head to our Facebook page to enter to win, or book your tickets online to enjoy this light-up spectacular!
