8th – 19th November 2017
The magical light and sound show Colours of Cluny returns for its second year, after the highly successful inaugural event in 2016. The event is the brainchild of Forres Features Community Interest Company, a non-profit organization formed by enthusiastic, local volunteers from Forres. It has been great to see an idea developed into reality.
We were lucky enough to find a window to take our daughter to the event last year, so we got ourselves wrapped up and headed down the road.
The entrance to the event is a short walk along an illuminated tree-lined path. You can feel the anticipation growing amongst the children and the adults heading in the same direction. At the entrance, there are a couple of stalls where you can buy the fluorescent rings and sticks, sweets as well as hot and cold drinks.
As you make your way along the winding path to the top of Cluny Hill you will find something different along the way to grab your attention. The fire-pit, where you can toast marshmallows, proved to be very popular with both the kids and grown-ups.
By the time you reach Nelson’s Tower, you don’t realise that you have made the climb to the top of Cluny Hill due to the distractions along the way. This is where the main show takes place. In 2016 the tower was used as the façade for a light and sound show, which was very impressive and we watched the show a few times before making our way back down the hill.
The 2017 show is set to be bigger and better and we are hoping to get a chance to be able to see for ourselves.
