The Enchanted Forest 2024 tickets now on sale

ORGANISERS behind Scotland’s favourite sound and light show, The Enchanted Forest, have announced tickets for the 2024 show are now on sale, some two months earlier than normal, enabling fans of the award-winning show more time to plan ahead.

The event, which attracts 85,000 visitors to Highland Perthshire every autumn, will take place from 3 October to 3 November. Creative development for this year’s show is now well underway, and the 2024 show theme will be revealed in June.

Showcasing Highland Scotland’s natural landscape at its autumnal best, the annual show is responsible for delivering an impressive economic impact of nearly £10 million to Highland Perthshire every autumn. Blending light, video, and sound to create a unique visitor experience, this year’s show will include several impressive installations including the usual spectacular light show over Loch Dunmore which uses music, animation, projection, beams, lights, and lasers to create a truly immersive experience.

Nela Popovic, CEO of The Enchanted Forest Community Trust, said:

“We’re extremely excited about this year’s show and the creative thinking behind this year’s theme which we’re looking forward to revealing in June. We made the decision to launch tickets early this year to give all visitors more time to plan ahead and budget accordingly.

“We know that the majority of our 85,000 visitors are from outside Perth and Kinross and over half stay overnight in the region. The earlier release date provides a longer lead-in time for visitors to plan their trip to Highland Perthshire and take full advantage of the wealth of the other visitor attractions that exist in the proximity of Pitlochry. This includes the new Perth Museum which just opened to the public at the end of March.”

In response to positive feedback and audience demand, event organisers have also extended the availability of their autism-friendly performances to run every night. These are smaller capacity sessions taking place at the start of the evening, allowing visitors with autism to be first on-site, with almost exclusive access to the event while they are there.

Recognising that big, noisy queues, crowds and even louder levels of sound at the event can be overwhelming for people with autism, organisers have worked hard to develop autism-friendly solutions that maintain the magical Enchanted Forest experience.

Nela Popovic commented:

“Every year we are looking to make the event even more accessible than the last, and the popularity of the autism-friendly performances last year was such that it made complete sense for us to enable more families to be able to access these quieter sessions. I’m delighted that there are now options to attend every night and not just on limited dates.”
