Perthshire’s starry skies are to be celebrated in this year’s Enchanted Forest show.
Organisers of the event, which has sold out for the past few years, have announced that the 2019 event will be entitled Cosmos.
80,000 tickets have been released for the sound and light show at Faskally Woods, near Pitlochry.
Visitors will follow the winding trail past Loch Dunmore, which forms the centrepiece of the event, deeper into the woods to explore the sight, sounds and scents of the universe.
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 show.
Last year’s sold-out show Of The Wild, brought an estimated £7.6 million to the local economy.
Bumblebee Conservation Trust, PKAVS and Guide Dogs Scotland (Perth & Kinross) have been chosen as the official charity partners for 2019. These organisations will not only benefit financially but will be promoted throughout the award-winning event’s month-long run.
Ian Sim, Chairman of The Enchanted Forest Community Trust, said: “As Scotland’s premier sound and light show, we are proud to offer visitors another hugely original experience where people, young and old, can set their imagination alight in Faskally Wood.
“Our creative team has once again developed an event that will captivate and enchant our visitors this autumn.
“As the tickets for this year’s event go on sale, I cannot emphasise strongly enough that people should buy tickets in advance to ensure they secure a chance to enjoy Cosmos this October.”
This year’s Enchanted Forest will run from October 3 to November 3 at Faskally Wood near Pitlochry. Tickets will go on sale to the public on Friday at 10am.
