Scotland's largest festive event is set to return to Glasgow this December, giving guests the chance to enjoy the country’s largest ice track as well as a magical winter walk.

Set to run from December 2nd until December 24th, itison's popular Elfingrove will transform the banks of the River Kelvin into an immersive and magical 60-minute journey.

The Elfin Trail is set to take guests on a walk of wonder down by the River Elfin through Kelvingrove Park.

They will be able to see seven incredible creatures brought to life by a world-class team of sound, lighting, and set designers before reaching the Kingdom of Elfingrove and street food village.

The event will also include the Ice Experience, which will see the creation of Scotland’s largest ice track, custom-built for skaters to enjoy ice skating with a covered see-through roof set against the stunning backdrop of a beautifully lit Kelvingrove Museum.

The itison team say the Ice Experience also comes complete with a unique skate up 'Mallow Café' for skaters to enjoy a warm mallow-inspired hot drink and treat.

The festive event is set to create over 200 jobs and generate a multi-million-pound windfall for the local economy.

Speaking about the return of the popular event, CEO of itison and Elfingrove director, Oli Norman, believes the event will rival that of famous cities around the world.

He 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!).

"If you enjoy GlasGLOW you’re going to love the Elfin Trail.”

The show will also see the return of the Elfingrove Legacy Fund (E.L.F) - the community engagement initiative which sees thousands of tickets donated to families who need it most and funds a capital project in the city.
