A north Northumberland-based company is toasting a job well done after receiving glowing feedback for lighting up an historic park.

Culture Creative won the tender to create a night-time light festival and delivered the sold out event, called Electric Glen, to more than 12,500 visitors over five consecutive nights.

The Alnwick-based company recently delivered the showcase for East Renfrewshire Council at Rouken Glen Park, near Glasgow.

And it has been commissioned to bring the event back next year.

Culture Creative director Zoe Bottrell said: “The feedback we’ve had from visitors has been amazing and we’re delighted to be returning to this beautiful park in 2014.”

Electric Glen was funded by Creative Scotland, East Renfrewshire – A Place to Grow Campaign and Heritage Lottery funding.

The Culture Creative team worked with specialist lighting supplier, London-based White Light, to create and develop a 1.5km illuminated trail round the Victorian boating pond and the challenging paths by the waterfall and glen.

A crew of nine, headed up by Zoe, with creative director Phil Supple and production manager Jezz Hellens, took six days to set up the route which included installing more than 14km of cabling and 400 generic, moving and LED fixtures all powered by three generator sets.

The event’s success boosts the company’s growing reputation for delivering large scale outdoor events, which last year included the Torch Relay in Northumberland.
