Family Festival: Electric Glen

Natalie Gomez
12th June 2015

We can’t wait to take our kids to Electric Glen – a magical, illuminated nighttime trail through beautiful Rouken Glen Park, a short drive from the centre of Glasgow, which takes place in the February half term.

Essentially a giant interactive art installation, this hour-long walk will follow a dramatically-lit route through the beautiful,waterfallfilled glen, encountering street theatre, light shows and interactive displays along the way. At the end of the trail, you arrive at an ornamental boating lake where you can join in with a traditional Scottish game of ‘curling’, with a very untraditional twist.

Just one of the many familyfriendly events taking place as part of Homecoming Scotland 2014, a year-long celebration of Scottish culture, heritage, food and drink. Electric Glen is a great excuse
for an evening frolic in one of Scotland’s prettiest parks.



When? It takes place from 6-9 and 13-16 February.

Price: Tickets cost £7.50 per adult, £5 per child. Visit
