I don't know about you, but once I get home on dark winter nights, it takes something very special to tempt me back outside again into the cold.
Something as special as the Electric Glen.
For four nights last week Rouken Glen Park shone electric, the winter darkness deep in the woods, banished by illuminations, lanterns and visual and sound installations.
Starting at the boating pond , over the bridge past the thundering waterfall and then down the dark winding leafy paths, this was a walk into another world. Every half hour groups of people, wrapped up against the wind and the rain set off with their torches to enjoy this unique adventure.
As usual my Mother and I failed to travel light! - three torches, two cameras and her handbag which weighs the same as a small child. Between that and our endless scarves and layers, it's a wonder we didn't collapse of heat exhaustion underneath the trees.
