GlasGLOW has returned to the Botanic Gardens just in time for Halloween, with an 80s movie theme.

Billed as the biggest Halloween event in the UK, the immersive experience takes place in Glasgow's Botanic Gardens.

Thursday saw the opening night of the 2023 edition, with families rushing to experience the show.

Oli Norman, founder of organiser itison and GlasGLOW, said: “The clocks go back this Sunday and for Glasgow that means one thing – it’s time for GlasGLOW. 

“This year’s event has been inspired by Ghostbusters and other nostalgic '80s movies and we’re really excited to open the gates tomorrow night – it’s a brilliant show and hope folk will enjoy it.

"Tickets are selling fast with opening week pretty much sold out so get in quick if you want to come along. 

“We’re delighted to be bringing The itison Pumpkin Fund back this year with a really cool interactive installation – we will be supporting ten brilliant local charities and hope to smash the £15,000 we raised last year.”

Our photographer Colin Mearns was on hand to take some photos of the night - check them out in our gallery above.
