Enchanted: New forest display on the wild side
perthshire: Nearly 80,000 tickets now on sale for hugely popular winter display
Organisers of the multi-award-winning Enchanted Forest have revealed details of this year’s dazzling winter display.
The sound and light show will return in October. Nearly 80,000 tickets will be released to the general public when the event box office opens today.
This year’s event, entitled Of The Wild, has been firmly rooted in nature. The theme is largely inspired by the mysteries of Faskally Wood – the show’s traditional home – after dark.
The creative team promises an engaging night-time walk, combining spectacular visuals, innovative technology, interactive special effects and an original music score.
More than 73,000 people attended last year’s sold-out show Oir an Uisge – Gaelic for Edge of the Water. It was a 4% increase in ticket sales on the previous record breaking year.
Now in its 17th year, Enchanted Forest brings in an estimated £3 million to the local economy.
Chairman of the Enchanted Forest Community Trust Ian Sim said: “Innovation and imagination are at the heart of the Enchanted Forest’s reputation as Scotland’s premier sound and light show.
“Without giving too much away, I am delighted to say that our creative team has once again come up with an event that will deliver a real wow factor to enchant and enthral visitors of all ages.”
The show runs for just over four weeks from October 4.
Light the night: The show is popular with all ages and this year begins on October 4.
