Hundreds of visitors immersed themselves in another universe as the trailblazing sound and light show, The Enchanted Forest, launched its much anticipated 2019 event, Cosmos, on Wednesday, October 2nd.
Taking inspiration from the vastness and natural beauty of the skies that sit above the forest, The Enchanted Forest has released 80,000 tickets for this year's event, with only a few dates still available for last minute bookings!
Set against the stunning natural backdrop of Faskally Wood, organisers The Enchanted Forest Community Trust use Scotland's premier creative talents to produce a world-class show. Zoë Squair has returned as creative producer, alongside Kate Bonney and Simon Hayes as lighting designers, and RJ McConnell, Jon Beales and Rachel Cullen providing sound design and composition for this year's magical event.
Whilst visitors will be able to enjoy the security and familiarity of their forest surroundings, the show will encourage visitors to sense the awe and wonderment of looking up to the sky through the tree canopy and be captivated by the cosmos.
New for 2019 is the Geodome, a 7m inflatable projection dome, accommodating approximately 50 people per showing. A completely immersive experience, it gives those within it the impression they are flying through the Cosmos.
The Bumblebee Conservation Trust, PKAVS and Guide Dogs Scotland have been confirmed as the official charity partners for 2019. These organisations will not only benefit financially but will be promoted extensively during the run of the event to raise awareness of their good work in the community.
Our very own Sally, headed along to the opening night with her daughters and gave us all the details in her Small City Review 'Still Enchanted'.
