Jess Glynne announces Forest Live dates for 2021
Jess Glynne has announced dates as part of Forest Live, the summer concert series presented by Forestry England.
Through her debut album, ‘I Cry When I Laugh’ (1.2 million album sales and counting) and platinum selling follow-up ‘Always in Between’, Jess Glynne has become established as one of the most successful acts of the past decade and holds the record for most Number 1 singles (7) scored by a British female solo artist. Whether performing solo (‘Hold My Hand’, ‘Don’t Be So Hard On Yourself’, ‘I’ll Be There’, ‘Thursday’) or in a collaborative spirit (‘Rather Be’ with Clean Bandit’, ‘My Love’ with Route 94, ‘Not Letting Go’ with Tinie Tempah, ‘These Days’ with Rudimental and Macklemore) her unique powerhouse vocal has delivered a succession of monster hits crossing the genres of pop, soul, R&B and house. Jess is currently working on material for her third album and additionally will be releasing a festive single via Amazon Music, a cover of Donny Hathaway’s ‘This Christmas’.
Forest Live is a major outdoor live music series that introduces forests to new audiences in unique, natural woodland arenas around the country. Over 1.9 million people have attended a Forest Live gig in the last twenty years, enjoying 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.

Wildlife - Forestry England manages the biggest and most diverse area of land in England. From forests to heathlands, mountains to moors, farmland to urban green spaces. Over half of our landscapes are covered by statutory designations, including Sites of Special Scientific Interest (SSSIs), Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONBs) and National Parks making them some of the most valuable habitats for nature. Recently we have reintroduced sea eagles and pine martens back to the countryside.
People - Forestry England encourages adventures on their 1,800 miles of trails. 99% of people live within an hour’s drive of one of our forests.
Timber - Forestry England plants and harvests millions of trees every year to keep them sustainably supplying around half of the country’s home-grown timber. The timber is used in everything from homebuilding to furniture–making.
Businesses - Forestry England supports local businesses with over 500 private companies operating in the nation’s forests.
