Thousands of feet below the ocean’s surface, it’s pitch dark. From there we start our journey through a vast and mysterious deep sea world.
Lighting our way will be a vast array of bioluminescent creatures that inhabit our deepest oceans, pulsing, propagating and diffusing their green and blue light to guide you on your journey.
When you arrive at The Enchanted Forest this year you will be plunged below the surface of the sea into a mystical world that is illuminated by light.
From the depths of the sea bed, you will make your way around the forest trail, swept along by the currents and tides, on a brightly lit journey that will span the globe, discovering the mysteries of our oceans and its inhabitants.
Set within Faskally Wood, The Enchanted Forest is delivered through a collaboration of some of the UK’s leading event production companies and creative talents. Led by event management agency Wavemakers Live, creative design has been a collaborative process between Karen Falconer – Creative Director and composers and sound designers Jon Beales and Rachel Cullen, with technical production for the show provided by Catalyst Event Production Services.
