Tuesday to Thursday opening for Glee from 2019 onwards

The British garden trade show Glee is changing its opening days from next year and will run from Tuesday to Thursday instead of Monday to Wednesday. This means that this year it will still be held from Monday, 10 September, to Wednesday, 12 September 2018. Next year's dates will be Tuesday, 10 September, to Thursday, 12 September 2019.

The simple act of moving Glee back by one day in the week has been decided upon due to increasing demand from the show's retail visitors, according to the organiser, the ITE Group. Visitor trends in recent years have hinted at the popularity of the show days later in the week.

Retail opening times in the UK form the backdrop to this. "With Sunday trading continuing to dominate the weekly schedule within retailing, we are seeing more and more visitors attending Glee on Tuesday and Wednesday as many dedicate Monday as the day to reflect after weekend trading, to catch up with their teams and order additional stock for the weeks ahead," said Matthew Mein, Glee Event Director.
