About Us

Following the success of last year’s inaugural GLOW Festival in Weston-super-Mare, the event is back to light up the town with a dazzling array of illuminated artworks and performance.

The additional light installations around the town are free for everyone to enjoy. To get your tickets click here The suggested price is £5 for adults. 

A new, expanded programme, funded by Arts Council England, the National Lottery Community Fund and Weston-super-Mare Town Council, will see the event shine bigger and brighter in the town's Grove Park and additional town centre locations 

Over four evenings during February half term, visitors can expect to be enthralled by a trail of light installations, interactive activities and sensory experiences suitable for all the family – from nationally-acclaimed spectacles and new showcase commissions, including artwork from internationally acclaimed artist Chila Kumari Singh Burman – to a shining community programme of local, creative talent.

A GLOW town centre trail map will be available in the run up to the festival, containing location information on the artists and their light displays. It will also feature town attractions lit up especially for GLOW, including a new horticultural artwork ‘Lighthouse Garden’ located at Weston’s train station forecourt and the vibrant Super Wonder Shrine recently created by legendary artist Morag Myerscough and the community.

GLOW is a flagship, sustainably-produced event that celebrates nature and the environment, conceived and designed by Weston-based artist and producer Paula Birtwistle and presented in partnership by Culture Weston and Weston-super-Mare Town Council.
