Our 2024 Show

Our theme for 2024 is firmly under wraps and will be announced in June 2024. Keep an eye on our website for further updates.

Over the last two decades more than 750,000 visitors have flocked to The Enchanted Forest making it an annual Autumnal mecca for families across the country.

The event has swept the board at a number of prestigious award ceremonies over its 20+ year history including Best Cultural Event at the VisitScotland Regional Awards in 2018, Best Outdoor Festival at the Scottish Outdoor & Leisure Awards 2017, Best Cultural Event at the UK Event Awards 2016, Scottish Rural Award for Tourism & Hospitality in 2016, Scottish Thistle Award for Best event in 2015, the Event Management Grand Prix, and Best Cultural Event at the Scottish Event Awards.

Fusing together the talents of some of the UK’s leading production companies The Enchanted Forest creates a dazzling palette of colour within an innovative design, all choreographed against an original music score. Perfect for exploring the stunning autumnal woodland setting of Forestry & Land Scotland’s Faskally Wood near Pitlochry.

Last Year’s Show: From the Deep

Thousands of feet below the ocean’s surface, it’s pitch dark. From there our visitors started their journey through a vast and mysterious deep sea world.

Lighting the way was a vast array of bioluminescent creatures that inhabit our deepest oceans, pulsing, propagating and diffusing their green and blue light to guide them on their journey.

From the depths of the sea bed, visitors made their way around the forest trail, swept along by the currents and tides, on a brightly lit journey that spanned 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 in 2023 was 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.
