The Electric Gardens II: Lux Botanicum

The Electric Gardens II: Lux Botanicum

Friday 13 November to Sunday 6 December.

Building on last winter’s successful first event, this sensory experience will encourage families, adults, children and groups to walk through the darkened upper Botanic Gardens with dramatic lighting, sound effects and music and look at the iconic Gardens in a different light. The magnificent Kibble Palace will once again be open throughout the event and have a few special entertainers and surprises.Michael Dale, West End Festival director said: “We’re very excited to launch our second winter event, The Electric Gardens II, Lux Botanicum. For this event, we’ve chosen to concentrate on the natural features of the Botanic Gardens, one of Glasgow’s most attractive parks, in particular the rarer trees, the animals that live in the park and a series of specially created masks that have been hidden away for visitors to discover.“We received much positive and constructive feedback after last winter’s event, which gave us new ideas and has helped us to improve the experience for the second event. We’ll have food and hot drinks available, and we’ve also created an exciting new ‘fire theatre’ show which will be performed several times on stage every evening.

The Electric Gardens 2 will start on Friday 13 November and run from 5.30pm to 8pm Wednesday to Sunday with entry slots every 15 minutes. There are no shows on Mondays or Tuesdays. The last day is Sunday 6 December.
