Organisers of The Enchanted Forest, Pitlochry, have confirmed that the event will re-open to the public tonight, Saturday 21st October.
Nela Popovic, executive director of The Enchanted Forest commented:
“The last few days have been very challenging for our team many of whom have spent the last 24 hours clearing the forest up after Storm Babet, and making sure our lighting installations were still functioning properly.
Our operations team met on site this morning with relevant stakeholders to assess conditions and they have agreed that we are safe to re-open the show tonight.
While we are very relieved that we can re-open this evening, we are still acutely aware that there are Yellow, Amber and Red Weather Warnings still in place for other parts of the country today and we have put additional measures in place for those customers affected by these warnings to transfer their tickets to new dates.
I’d urge anyone due to attend tonight to check our website for the most up to date guidance, and to heed travel warnings specific to their local area, and to only travel if it is genuinely safe to do so.
I’d also like to personally thank the small army of people and local businesses who have come together over the last few days, in very challenging conditions, to make the re-opening of the event possible and we look forward to welcoming people back to The Enchanted Forest tonight.”
