Paloma Faith announces Forest Live show at Thetford Forest

Forest Live, the summer concert series presented by Forestry England, has announced that British pop superstar Paloma Faith will perform a headline show in the unique outdoor setting of High Lodge, Thetford Forest on 27 June 2024.

Paloma is a familiar face for Forest Live. She returns to the event with more performances than any other female artist in its history, with every show so far selling out. She last joined the bill in 2018, when she performed at four different forests around the country.

Renowned for her empowering and immeasurable pop anthems including “Only Love Can Hurt Like This”, “Upside Down” and 2023’s “How You Leave A Man”, Paloma Faith’s unwavering confidence and candid self-expression has allowed her to emerge an esteemed music icon.

To date she has released five Top 10 albums, embarked on a flourishing acting career, formed altruistic partnerships with the likes of Oxfam and Greenpeace and launched her own interiors brand. All while serving as a lifeline for women as she shares her experiences of motherhood, post-natal depression and the challenges of feeling as though she has to sacrifice herself for everyone else. Paloma’s sixth studio album ‘The Glorification of Sadness’ is set to arrive this week, featuring high-profile collaborators including Kojey Radical, Chase & Status and Charlie Puth.

Paloma Faith is the latest headliner to be announced for the esteemed concert series, with Thetford Forest also hosting Canadian rock icon Bryan Adams on 20 June, the legendary Sting on 22 June and charismatic hitmaker Tom Jones on 28 June.

Forestry England uses the money Forest Live raises to maintain beautiful natural areas for everyone to enjoy, run important conservation projects and keep growing trees. Last year they planted some 7.4 million trees, caring for the nation’s 1,500 woods and forests sustainably and welcoming 291 million visits in 2022-23. Everyone in England lives within a one-hour drive of one of the nation’s forests. Over two million people have enjoyed the Forest Live gigs over the last twenty-three years.

This year, they present the concerts in partnership with Live Nation’s Cuffe & Taylor for the first time. Gigs will take place at six forests throughout England — Delamere Forest, Dalby Forest, Sherwood Pines, High Lodge Thetford Forest, Westonbirt Arboretum and Cannock Chase Forest.
