GLASGOW'S Halloween hit GlasGLOW is set to return this year, it has been revealed.

Itison's spectacular will resume its place in the Botanic Gardens in October with a new theme: Glasglopolis.

The show will create over 150 jobs and generate a multi-million-pound windfall for the local area.

Following three sell-out events, the new show will see the city transformed into a town under-siege with a terrifying toxic gloop.

The inspiration behind the latest story hails from Cop 26, which will be taking place at the same time, prompting creator Oli Norman to devise a theme surrounding the idea of climate change.

Playing the role of an undercover reporter, each guest will go on a journey to expose the truth and save the city’s annual pumpkin festival.

Set to run from October 27 to November 7, GlasGLOW will transform the West End park into an immersive journey.

Oli Norman, CEO of itison, said: “The past 18 months have been incredibly tough for everyone, that’s why we believe now more than ever in incredible experiences to enjoy together.

“In October 2020 we managed to put on GlasGLOW for over 90,000 event-goers making it Scotland’s largest outdoor activity. The odds were stacked heavily against us, but we brought light to the dark winter months.

“Now, with COP 26 coming to Glasgow and the eyes of the world on our home city, we’ve created a brand-new spectacular for locals and visitors alike, one that reflects our response to the climate crisis in a fun and engaging way.

“I can’t give too much away, but we’ll be counting on you to help uncover the source of the toxic gloop and save our city!”

Whilst the exact details of this year’s show are under wraps, itison will be investing a seven-figure sum to create a world-class show and have promised the return of some of the most loved elements including Marshmallowland.

Early bird tickets will go on sale next Wednesday, August 25, at 7.30am, exclusively at the GlasGLOW website.

The show will also see the return of the itison Pumpkin Fund - the community engagement initiative which sees thousands of tickets donated to families who needed it most and funds a capital project in the city.

This year itison will also be helping fund a local capital project supporting young people, sustainability, and helping educate on the climate crisis.
