Thetford Forest set to go electric

Thetford Forest is set to shine next month when a visual extravaganza comes to town.

Electric Forest is made up of a series of illuminated trails which will light up the trees enabling visitors to experience the sights and sounds of the winter forest at night.

The route will encourage visitors to explore the forest and discover interactive art installations woodland illuminations sprinkled throughout the route.

Zoe Bottrell, producer and project manager at Culture Creative said: 'The Electric Forest will spark to life for the first time this December, lighting up Thetford with a different brand of seasonal cheer.

They'll be something for everyone with illuminated play areas, interactive lighting and sound installations, storytellers and wonderful winter vistas to scamper round, stroll through or stop and enjoy.'

The event had been set to arrive in the Forest in December last year but poor weather up north forced organisers to cancel and rearrange for February this year.

However poor ticket sales meant it was cancelled for a second time.
