Christmas at Delamere Forest

Another trail we were really lucky enough to work on last winter was Christmas at Delamere Forest.  This Christmas trail organised by Forestry England was new to Delamere in 2021 and had over a million lights and festive sounds to keep you entertained. We where so please to again be asked to supply audio for the month long event again for the 2022 season.

Working for Culture Creative and Co-Producers Event Design Co, dBS Solutions provided around 100 compact IP rated outdoor speakers from Martin Audio around the site.  We make use of the Adorn 55 speaker along with 5 and 6 inch speakers from the CDD Range. Our team survey the site and place speakers along the trail to provide even coverage of the multi zone sound scape. We pair these fantastic little outdoor speakers with our power amplifiers from QSC stored in specially designed outdoor cabinets to keep the electrical equipment dry, Our unique playback systems provide reliable playback of each zones music night after night from SSD storage. They can be triggered to start at a set time of day and stop again once the event is finished to ensure that noise disruption to local residents as well as staff is kept to a minimum.
Several of the trails zones are specially commissioned for the event and their design often involves multi channel music or audio that is also time coded to lighting and other effects. Our team work with the artists to create the soundscape and program this to our dedicated Qlab systems.
Winter is one of our favourite times of the year here at dBS Solutions and we are lucky enough to work on some of the most impressive Light Trails in the UK. If you are organising a new light trail this coming winter or looking for a supplier to work with on your existing event, why not get in touch with out team?
