2 ART / MUSIC / FILM The Lighthouse Late

1 AROUND TOWN Night in the Garden

3 LGBT Glasgay!

As lovely as it is during daytime, the Botanics will come to atmospheric life every evening for three and a half weeks. Light artists Malcolm Innes and Euan Winton will visually bathe the setting while a stroll along the route reveals interactive stations and one or two hidden surprises. As Innes has said, the visual treats will span from ‘grand spectacle, through romantic and beautiful, to mysterious and tiny’. See preview, page 49 and Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh, Thu 30 Oct–Sun 23 Nov. A stirring line-up has been gathered for this year’s festival. Among the highlights are John Waters, Mouse & Reservoir Ducks, and Raymond Burke’s play Cardinal Sinne (pictured). See feature, page 12. Various venues, Glasgow, Mon 20 Oct–Fri 14 Nov.
