Thetford Forest is set to shine again this winter as the Electric Forest sparks to life for a second year running.

Tickets are now on sale for this event which will transform the forest with stunning light, sound and visual art installations from December 1 to 16 (Sat 1-Sun 2; Thur 6-Sun 9; Thur 13-Sun 16).

Beginning at High Lodge, a 2km trail will take visitors on a magical night-time adventure through the woodland, snaking through patches of darkness into illuminated areas.

The Electric Forest is produced by Culture Creative in partnership with the Forestry Commission.

Culture Creative director Zoe Bottrell said: “Just over 6,000 visitors enjoyed the Electric Forest experience last year and we’re working hard to ensure that this year’s event is even better. We’ve commissioned some Suffolk-based visual artists to produce a stunning installation with the help of local schoolchildren and we’re also looking at producing some more unusual ones – you may even hear the trees talking this year.”

The High Lodge Forest Café will be open, providing hot meals and drinks. They are also offering a three-course Christmas meal for group bookings – call 01842 813949 or visit the website below.

Visitors are advised to wear warm clothes, waterproofs and sensible outdoor footwear, and bring a torch.

Advance tickets to the Electric Forest are £15.50 adult, £10 concessions, £41 family ticket (under-5s free) – inclusive of parking (booking fees will apply.) For details and to book, visit or call the box office on 03000 680400.

  • I'd love to take the family to visit this, it sounds magical and the kids would love it, but it's a very expensive walk-in-the-woods.
