It’s one of the most eagerly anticipated events on the local calendar – Perthshire’s multi-award-winning sound and light show is back for its 17th year and it promises to be another incredible spectacle!
The Enchanted Forest has released almost 80,000 tickets for this year’s event which will go on sale to the general public from tomorrow. Over 73,000 visitors attended in 2017 and this year’s event – entitled Of The Wild – is firmly rooted in nature and is inspired by the hidden mystery of Faskally Wood after dark. It all gets underway on Thursday 4th October until Sunday 4th November.
It’s estimated that The Enchanted Forest brings in around £3million to the local economy and almost 30,000 tickets have been snapped up in private pre-sales to previous customers already.
Weekend nights are already proving popular and customers are advised to book early to avoid disappointment, with organisers predicting that the event will sell out before the opening night for the second year running. The public sale officially gets underway from 10AM tomorrow morning.
Set against the stunning natural backdrop of Faskally Wood, the event is organised by The Enchanted Forest Community Trust. They work with Scotland’s premier creative talents to produce a world-class state-of-the-art show which has won numerous awards since the first event in 2002. It was most recently named as a finalist in the Best Cultural Event category at the 2017 Scottish Thistle Awards. I cannot emphasise strongly enough that people should buy tickets in advance to ensure they secure a chance to visit this year.
“Innovation and imagination are at the heart of The Enchanted Forest’s reputation as Scotland’s premier sound and light show,” said Ian Sim, Chairman of The Enchanted Forest Community Trust.
“Without giving too much away, I’m 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.
“As demand for tickets grows year on year, I cannot emphasise strongly enough that people should buy tickets in advance to ensure they secure a chance to visit this year.”
The Enchanted Forest has also confirmed its charity partners for 2018. Outdoor Access Trust for Scotland, The Birks Cinema Trust and Blairgowrie Riding for Disabled have been chosen this year, and the organisations will not only benefit financially but they will be promoted extensively during the month-long extravaganza.
