This year's Enchanted Forest show, a light and sound event that takes place each autumn in Pitlochry, Scotland, has confirmed changes for its displays this autumn.
Due to run from 28th September until 29th October, the show will take place in Pitlochry's Faskally Wood, where the show’s creative team will use the outdoor space to create ‘dazzling visual displays with music’.
Now in its 16th year, the Enchanted Forest 2017 show is called Oir an Uisge (Scottish Gaelic for ‘edge of the water’. At the heart of Faskally Wood is Loch Dunmore, which is said to inspire the lights and sound effects each year.
Changes to the overall landscape throughout 2017 mean that organisers have more leeway when it comes to involving the loch within the light displays.
Producer Zoe Squair said: "The changes this year to the natural landscape around Loch Dunmore have inspired our creative team to think of the space a little differently; our lighting designers and composers felt closer than ever to the water. We're all very excited about what we've come up with."
Enchanted Forest is led by the team of Zoe Squair as producer, Kate Bonney and Simon Hayes as lighting designers, and RJ McConnell and Jon Beales providing sound design and composition.
Last year the show attracted 70,000 visitors. Visitors will be treated to a series of choreographed sound and light shows while they follow the path around the forest.
Further highlights include shopping opportunities, watching live history re-enactments and performances from storytellers, and visiting Scottish Crannog Centre, which features a reconstruction of an early Iron Age loch-dwelling.
