The Enchanted Forest, Perthshire’s award-winning sound and light show, will release 65,000 tickets tomorrow for what will mark its 15th anniversary show.
The state-of-the-art show, entitled shimmer, will run throughout October. Last year’s show attracted a record 62,000 visitors breaking previous box office records.
The 2016 show runs from Thursday 29th September to Friday 30th October at Faskally Wood near Pitlochry. This year’s event will also see the return of the award-winning creative team of Kate Bonney and Simon Hayes as lighting designers, and RJ McConnell and Jon Beales providing sound design and composition and show producer, Derek Allan.
Ian Sim, acting chairman of The Enchanted Forest, said: “Every year The Enchanted Forest lights up the countryside of Perthshire and boosts the Autumnal tourist season. The show we have planned for this year is remarkable and will prove to be a must-see. The team have some very exciting developments in planning and we’re certain it will create that wow factor for visitors.”
In 2015 The Enchanted Forest extended its season due to popular demand and the event now brings in an estimated £2 million to the local economy. In March it was awarded the Scottish Rural Award for Tourism & Hospitality 2016.
