About Us

The GLOW Light Festival is returning to Weston-super-Mare for the third year running during the February half-term (13 – 17 February).

The 2024 event has been expanded to run over five nights and will bring a magical line-up of more than 25 spectacular light installations at the festival’s main site in Grove Park. It will also spill into the town centre with free, must-see installations that will showcase Weston at its brightest and most colourful.

Last year’s sell-out event attracted 20,000 visitors.

Tickets for Grove Park must be booked in advance and are offered on a Pay What You Decide basis in allocated time slots. It is free for under 16s, who must be accompanied by an adult. The Grove Park event will run from 5.30pm to 10pm each night, with the last entry slot at 9pm.

The event is presented in partnership with Super Culture, Weston-super-Mare Town Council, the Grand Pier and PYTCH and made possible thanks to funding from Weston-super-Mare Town Council and Arts Council England.

Access and Accessibility 

We aim to make GLOW an enjoyable and accessible experience for everyone. The festival takes place across different locations. For the main Grove Park site:

– We recommend allowing around 45 minutes to complete the trail. The trail is self-guided so you can do a shortened version.

– We will have dedicated Access Companions onsite to assist those with limited mobility and those who identify as d/deaf or visually impaired. If you would like to book such a Companion please let us know at becky@superculture.org.uk

– There are dedicated time slots at 5:30pm and 5:45pm (Tues-Thurs only) with lower capacity for people with reduced mobility or access needs that mean they might prefer a quieter experience. 

– Audio description tours are available on request. Please contact becky@superculture.org.uk for timings.

– The majority of the event is wheelchair accessible, including all town centre locations. However, due to the terrain in Grove Park, parts of the trail may not be fully accessible.

– There will be accessible toilets available at Grove Park.

– Assistance Dogs are welcome 

– There will be seating available in Grove Park.

GLOW is a multi-sensory event – there will be lights, sounds and things to interact with.

During the event itself, our Culture Makers in hi-viz blue vests will be there to assist.
