Northern Lights: Over 10,000 tickets go on sale this Friday for Colours of Cluny

Over 10,000 tickets for Colours of Cluny, a spectacular light and sound show that is set to showcase the beauty of Cluny Hill in Forres, are to go on sale to the public this Friday 24th June at 10am.
The event, which is the first of its kind in Morayshire, will light up northern skies this November and organisers, Forres Features Community Interest Company, are expecting the vibrant show to attract thousands of visitors to the area.

Graham Murdoch, Chairman of Forres Features Community Interest Company said:

“We’re delighted by the fantastic response since announcing Colours of Cluny and with tickets going on sale this Friday we urge people to book early. We’re looking forward to putting on an event that will engage the local community but also drive visitor numbers to the area. This region of Scotland has always been popular for people looking to see the Northern Lights – but, unlike our spectacular natural lights which choose their own times to reveal themselves, this Northern light show is guaranteed.”

The interactive family show has been developed by the same creative team who are behind the multi-award winning Pitlochry sound and light show, The Enchanted Forest. Set to enhance the natural landscape in a dramatic and mesmerising mixture of sound and light, bringing awe to children and igniting a playful sense in adults, Colours of Cluny follows a route that begins close to the town centre with an illuminated walk through Grant Park, up Cluny Hill, before culminating in a show-stopping finale at the historic Nelson’s Tower.

Speaking of her excitement for the new event, Creative Director, Kate Bonney, commented:

“I went to school in Forres and the area has provided me with much inspiration over the years. I’m truly delighted that we’re developing a show that is set to showcase the landscape of Cluny Hill and Forres in a new and exciting way and is definitely something not to be missed.

Kate continued:

“Many of the team have worked on award-winning shows such as The Enchanted Forest in Pitlochry and bring with them a wealth of creative talent and some very exciting ideas that will make both local people and visitors to the areas see Forres in a whole new, and very colourful, light!”

The show will run on Wednesdays to Sundays from 10th – 20th November and tickets are available from this Friday 24th June by visiting the website at www.coloursofcluny.com
