Forest Live postponed to 2022

We are sorry to have to tell you that the Government’s roadmap out of lockdown has made it clear that we cannot hold our Forest Live concerts this summer. We will be postponing our Forest Live 2021 concerts to June 2022.

We are extremely disappointed, but this is the best way to keep our valued customers safe, as well as the staff, volunteers, contractors and artists that make Forest Live possible.

We are delighted to confirm that all Forest Live 2021 headline acts have been able to reschedule all their performances and will be joining us in June 2022. All bookings remain valid for the 2022 dates.
