Forest Live 2024

Forest Live is a major live music series held in our nation’s forest.

Join us among the trees to hear the best live music, connect with nature and discover unique locations across the country. 

This is the ideal concert experience taking place in beautiful natural woodland arenas every summer, with a relaxed atmosphere and an incredible soundtrack.

By buying tickets from Forestry England, you are helping to grow and protect our nation’s forests for generations to come. We plant over 7 million trees in England each year and protect trees and wildlife habitats from climate threats. Everyone in England lives within a one-hour drive of one of the nation’s forests. 

Explore the venues and book your tickets when they go on sale from our new website!
