Hosting world-famous musicians in a unique festival setting, Forest Live is coming to Westonbirt, the National Arboretum, from Thursday 9 to Sunday 12 June 2022.
It’s the first time the summer concert will be staged at Westonbirt Arboretum since 2019, after being cancelled for the past two years due to the Coronavirus pandemic, and it promises to be a spectacular showcase of British talent – with the income from ticket sales helping to support the nation’s forests for generations to come.
And Gloucestershire music fans are in luck, with tickets still available for Texas and Keane at this year’s Forest Live; as well as four-show festival tickets, which provide access to the whole series of concerts at Westonbirt Arboretum this June 2022.
