Forest Live at Westonbirt Arboretum

About

The Forest Live concerts began in 2001 at four Forestry Commission venues including Westonbirt. Now in its eighteenth season, Forest Live takes place at seven fantastic forest locations. The gigs are well known for their eclectic range of international artists, amazing atmosphere and their stunning locations.

In 2018 the Forest Live tour will be at Westonbirt from Thursday 14 to Sunday 17 June.

Thursday 14 June - The Script

The Script are one of the world’s most popular bands and have sold over 29 million records. Their latest release, ‘Freedom Child’, topped the UK Official Albums Chart and scored the band their fourth UK No 1 album. Lead single ‘Rain’ picked up phenomenal radio airplay and the video has been viewed over 24 million times. 

Friday 15 June - Paul Heaton & Jacqui Abbott with special guest Billy Bragg 

Paul Heaton and Jacqui Abbott’s latest album ‘Crooked Calypso’ charted at no 2 making it their highest release as a duo to date following on from two further top 5 albums.  Paul Heaton, one of the UK’s most successful songwriters, first came to public attention as front man of The Housemartins.   Heaton also formed The Beautiful South, who released 10 hugely successful albums. Jacqui Abbott was lead vocalist in The Beautiful South from ’94 to 2000.  The Forest Live gigs will see them play material from their albums as a duo and songs from The Beautiful South and the Housemartins.

Saturday 16 June - Paloma Faith

With her acclaimed Number 1 album ‘The Architect’ riding high in the charts and a BRIT nomination for Best British Female, Paloma Faith announces ‘The Architect Summer Tour’ which includes dates as part of Forest Live, the concert series organised by the Forestry Commission.

George Ezra is one of the biggest selling male artists of the decade. The announcement heralds a big year for George, ahead of the release of his highly anticipated, soon-to-be-announced second album in March 2018. His debut album Wanted On Voyage is certified 4x platinum in the UK, and was amongst the top 10 biggest selling artist albums in this country in both 2014 and 2015, reaching #1 in the Official UK Chart and spending 122 weeks in the chart overall.
