About Madness

Following on from sold-out Forest Live 2022 performances, Madness have announced dates for 2023 as part of the annual concert series presented by Forestry England.

Drawing on their musical roots in pop and ska, Madness are responsible for some of the most credible pop compositions of their generation with the ability to write songs that sparkle with the spirit of British life.

Creating their trademark ‘nutty’ sound, they have a huge haul of hits such as ‘One Step Beyond’, ‘My Girl’, ‘Baggy Trousers’, ‘Embarrassment’, ‘It Must Be Love’, ‘House Of Fun’, ‘Driving In My Car’, ‘Our House’ and ‘Wings Of A Dove’. 

Special guest Hollie Cook and support The Hawkmen will also perform on the night.
