Scottish events company itison has announced this year’s Christmas shows, with Elfingrove and the Ice Experience returning to Kelvingrove this December.
A multi-million-pound investment is set to create the Elfin Trail by the River Elfin, along with the country’s largest ice rink.
The Elfin Trail will take guests on a 60-minute journey along the River Elfin through Kelvingrove park to see seven magical creatures brought to life by a team of sound, lighting and set designers, before reaching the Kingdom of Elfingrove and street food village.
The Ice Experience meanwhile, lets customers skate beneath a see-through roof, set against a festive-ly lit Kelvingrove Museum.
The events should create more than 200 jobs during the run from 2 until 24 December.
Oli Norman, chief executive of itison and Elfingrove director, said: “From Rockefeller Centre in New York to Ice World in Vienna, I’ve skated some of the world’s most iconic rinks – to create our own at Kelvingrove Museum to rival those great cities is a real honour.”
“With the Elfin Trail we’ve created a truly magical winter walk of wonder in an area of Kelvingrove Park that takes you down to the River Kelvin – Elfin! – f you enjoy GlasGLOW you’re going to love the Elfin Trail.”
Early bird tickets will go on sale from 6 October.
The show will also see the return of the Elfingrove Legacy Fund – a community engagement initiative which sees thousands of tickets donated to families who need it most and funds a capital project in the city.
