Long awaited tickets for Scotland’s favourite sound and light show, The Enchanted Forest, will go on sale to the general public this Friday, 22 July. The 2022 event, entitled Together, is the first to return to Faskally Wood after a two-year hiatus caused by the global pandemic.
This year’s show theme has been inspired by the hopeful public mood of togetherness that so many are now enjoying after such a long time apart, as well as a desire to mark the 20th anniversary of Scotland’s favourite sound and light show, which was founded in 2002.
Organisers are expected to deliver a show that transports visitors to a unique and inspirational place in time, where people of all ages can really come together, to interact, and experience the forest as their awe-inspiring playground.
Set against the stunning natural backdrop of Faskally Wood, the 20th anniversary event will be a creative collaboration of some of the UK’s leading event production companies and creative talents.
Over 80,000 visitors are expected to attend this year’s event and, with over 46,000 tickets already pre-sold, demand is expected to be higher than it has ever been. Fans of the event have waited patiently for the hotly anticipated tickets to go on sale and organisers are urging people to book quickly before the event sells-out.
Bringing an estimated £7.6 million to the local economy annually, the return of the event will be welcomed by the hundreds of tourism and hospitality businesses in Highland Perthshire too. With hotel rooms and restaurants in high demand during the event, the event drives the Autumnal extension of Pitlochry’s highly successful Summer tourist season and has been greatly missed by local businesses over the last two years.
Nela Popovic, executive director of The Enchanted Forest Community Trust, said:
“We have been dreaming of this return to Faskally Wood for almost three years now and we’re so delighted to be getting ready to switch the lights back on again. The pandemic has really tested everyone and we are so grateful for the support we’ve had from our wonderful audience as we’ve navigated the ups and downs of the pandemic.
“We are very proud to be returning this Autumn and our team are working very hard to create a truly original experience where people, young and old, can set their imaginations alight. This year’s event will have all the innovation and showstopping moments we have come to expect from our creative partners, and we are confident it will create light, hope and inspiration for everyone who attends.
“As the tickets for this year’s event go on sale, I cannot emphasise strongly enough that people should buy their tickets in advance to ensure they secure their chance to enjoy the show Together this October.”
This year’s Enchanted Forest will run from 29 September – 30 October, 2022 at Faskally Wood near Pitlochry. Tickets will go on sale to the public from Friday, July 22 at 10am.
