Forest Live is a major outdoor live music series presented by Forestry England. Forest Live headline acts for 2023 are Anne-Marie, Jack Savoretti with special guest Natalie Imbruglia, Madness, Paul Weller, Richard Ashcroft and Tom Grennan. The concerts take place between 8-18 June and introduce forests to new audiences in unique, natural woodland arenas around the country: Cannock Chase Forest, Staffs; Delamere Forest, Cheshire; Thetford Forest, Suffolk; Westonbirt Arboretum, Glos.

Over 2 million people have attended a Forest Live gig in the last twenty-two years, experiencing great music and supporting the nation’s forests when buying a ticket. Going to a concert helps Forestry England create beautiful places for people to enjoy, run important conservation projects and keep growing trees. Last year they planted some 6.8 million trees, caring for the nation’s 1,500 woods and forests sustainably and welcoming 363 million visits annually.
