2020 Show: Cancelled

Media Statement

1st May 2020

It is with heavy hearts and great sadness that, due to the ongoing effect of Covid-19, The Enchanted Forest Community Trust has reached the decision to cancel this year’s event.

Alongside the whole world, we have been watching the situation closely as it develops and, while we had quietly hoped the ban on mass gatherings may ease off in the Autumn, it is clear to us now that the ongoing requirements for physical distancing may remain in place until the end of the year. That and a lack of clarity surrounding the duration of the ban on mass gatherings means it is simply too risky for us to continue with our plans.

We want to thank every single one of you for your support in making The Enchanted Forest the magical event that it is. Our beautiful home of Faskally Wood will stand proud and tall throughout this, and we will miss all of you coming to visit us this year. But we want our audience, you, to remain safe and well, and it’s so important that we all do our part in making that happen, however heart breaking that may be.

In 2021, we will be celebrating our 20th anniversary and we plan to use the extra time in 2020 to get very creative and to ensure that our return in 2021 will be full of the magic and enchantment that you have all come to expect from us as Scotland’s pioneering sound and light show.

Our dates for 2021 are Thursday 30 September – Sunday 31 October.

Over the next couple of weeks, we’ll be reaching out to everyone who has purchased tickets to arrange a refund. Because our 2021 show is more than 12 months away, we felt this was the fairest thing to do. Tickets for 2021 will go on sale later this year and everyone who has purchased tickets for this year’s show will be given privileged access to tickets, allowing them to rebook, prior to anyone else.

If you have any questions, our team are here and happy to help. Please drop us an email at
