Electric Gardens 2

Kibble Palace
Kibble Palace

For the second winter, Glasgow’s West End Festival is putting on its Electric Gardens light show in the Botanics. We headed along on Friday evening and braved the cold to wander around for an hour or so. We enjoyed watching the fire-dancers.

Then it was on past the glass-houses – one of my favourite sights this time and last. They look as if they are on fire.


Then wandering in amongst the spookily lit trees and plants:

Finally, we watched the Kibble Palace change colour several times before heading off for some food and drink to warm us up.

    Great photos Anabel 🙂 If we are through in Glasgow before Christmas, I think now we will definitely pay a visit to the Gardens!

      Thanks! All credit to John for the pictures. Electric Gardens is only on Wed-Sun this week and next (I think, the link has the details) but I love visiting the Botanics at any time. We live nearby so my route often takes me through them.

        Well done to John 🙂 I suspect we’ll miss out on the Electric show, but I’d like to see the gardens anyway, they look amazing. My wife is from Glasgow, but she’s not been either.

          Even if it’s miserable outside, the Kibble Palace and the hothouses are lovely to stroll round.

    It’s great how they use their imaginations these days to keep the public turning up.

      Yes – and paying (in my case) to be frozen in a park I walk through at least twice a week anyway!

    That looks gorgeous, Anabel: fantastic pictures. Thanks for sharing,

    Wow, what a cool idea. Sadly I won’t be in Glasgow to experience it myself.

      I think it actually looks better in the pictures (shouldn’t say that probably) because it’s more concentrated – there are some dark areas between light displays – but on the whole, yes, I agree!

      Thank you. Cool in both senses, or rather, freezing!

    Very cool – and I love the fire dancers (though I think I would prefer seeing them in the South Pacific this time of year…).

    That’s really a different show. The pics are nice, but I bet live is a lot better!

        Is it cold over there? Here is getting freezing 😦


        • Anabel Marsh November 26, 2015 / 20:57

          It’s a bit milder now, but it was really cold on Friday evening when we were at the light show. Shiver!

    This is so cool! I love the lights and the show inside. I find it magical looking

    Fab photos, the one of the glass houses is my favourite. I’d love to see the Electric Gardens for myself unfortunately but I’m too far away. 😦


I'd love to hear what you think!
