Lucky prizewinners receive family tickets for Colours of Cluny

Three lucky North-east families will enjoy this year’s Colours of Cluny outdoor sound and light extravaganza absolutely free.

Katie Burns from Elgin, Evelyn Flett from Buckie and Darren Love from Forres were all automatically entered into a prize draw after attending last year’s event.

A delighted Evelyn said: “Brilliant! My grand-daughter was asking if Colours of Cluny was on again this year and I was able to tell her that it was. Even better if we have free tickets.”

Darren added: “It’s a great event and I’m really looking forward to a return visit this year.”

Katie continued: “Colours of Cluny is a great evening out. I can’t recommend it highly enough.”

Colours of Cluny was created in 2016 by the Forres Features Community Interest Company as a vehicle to boost the local economy by driving visitors to the attractive Morayshire town.

The show – which is run by the Forres Features Community Interest Company – relies on external funding and a huge number of volunteers and companies/organisations (who provide services at no or minimal cost) to ensure tickets can be offered at a reasonable cost.

This year’s Colours of Cluny will cost over £140,000 to stage and any profits will be reinvested to fund the following year’s event and support local causes.

Local businessman and Forres Features Chairman Graeme Murdoch said: “We hope locals and visitors from all parts of the North-east and further afield will come along and enjoy our sound and light extravaganza.”

Colours of Cluny is being produced by creative director – and local girl – Kate Bonney, who is also part of the talented creative team behind the multi-award-winning Enchanted Forest in Pitlochry.

Graeme Murdoch added: “Demand for tickets grows year on year and I cannot emphasise strongly enough that people should buy tickets in advance to ensure they secure a chance to visit this year.”

Colours of Cluny takes place from Wednesday, November 8 to Sunday, November 19, 2017 at Cluny Hill Grant Park in Forres. Tickets are on sale to the public at www.coloursofcluny.com
