Forest Live shows always provide a unique experience, coupling the natural sounds of the wood with unmissable live music and some tremendous British weather. The sun will definitely be shining, right? ☀
To celebrate the return of Forest Live for 2017 and the impressive line-up of talent taking to select forestry locations across the UK, we're hosting a competition that see you get a slice of the action. We've got four pairs of tickets for four lucky winners to win, and what's more - the winners can select the show of their choice!
Joining the Forest Live party for 2017 are some of the biggest names in music from the last few years: Clean Bandit, Olly Murs (with special guest Louisa Johnson), Craig David, and last but certainly not least, the comeback king Rick Astley (with special guest Rumer).
Organised by The Forestry Commission, Forest Live takes place across June and July every Summer. An eclectic mix of acts perform in seven spectacular forest locations across the country, an independent programme organised to bring forests to new audiences. Income generated from ticket sales is spent on protecting, improving and expanding England’s forests and woodlands and increasing their value to people and wildlife. It's an all-round win/win.
2017's roster of performers is perhaps the best yet, with all acts related to our competition topping the Official Singles and Albums Charts in 2016. Rick Astley shocked the world last year with his album 50, which he played all of the instruments on. Everyone loved it, and it went straight in at Number 1.
Meanwhile, Olly Murs scored his fourth chart topping album and Craig David earned his second, but his first since 2000. Clean Bandit enjoyed their most successful year yet, reaching the Top 5 twice. Their latter release of the year Rockabye was a nine week Number 1 that even scooped the coveted Christmas Number 1.
Our lucky winners could be attending one of the following gigs:
Rick Astley with special guest Rumer: Friday 16 June, Bedgebury Pinetum, near Tunbridge Wells, Kent.
Craig David + guests: Sunday 18 June, Westonbirt Arboretum, near Tetbury, Glos.
Olly Murs with special guest Louisa Johnson: Friday 23 June, Sherwood Pines Forest, near Mansfield, Notts.
Clean Bandit + guests: Sunday 2 July, Thetford Forest, near Brandon, Suffolk.
