ROUKEN Glen Park is to be transformed into an "electric glen" next month to showcase the natural beauty of the area at night.

An illuminated trail through the park will be complemented by visual art installations and soundscapes as part of a new lighting festival.

Northumberland-based company Culture Creative has been commissioned to create the installation, which will be called Electric Glen.

East Renfrewshire Council hopes it will attract visitors from far and wide.

Councillor Tony Buchanan, East Renfrewshire Council's events convener, said: "Rouken Glen Park is within a 20-minute drive from the city centre.

"Once you are inside the Glen, you are completely cut off from the rest of the world and it is beautiful."

Electric Glen is the brainchild of Culture Creative's creative producer Zoe Bottrell and creative director Phil Supple.

The aim is to transform a familiar landscape into something new and mysterious.

Zoe said: "The sounds, smells, the look and feel of all the different textures illuminated throughout the trail will be a complete sensory experience that intrigues all ages and piques all kinds of interests."

The event will run from 5.30pm to 8.30pm every night from February 14 to February 17. Prices will range from £3 for children to £5 for adults and £14 for a family group. More details can be found online at
