Richard Ashcroft announces Forest Live gig

Tickets on sale from 9am Friday 9 December

Richard Ashcroft has announced a very special home-forest gig as part of Forest Live 2023, the summer concert series presented by Forestry England.

Respected by his peers and adored by his fans, Richard Ashcroft has enjoyed an illustrious career as lead singer and songwriter of alt-rock band The Verve and as a highly acclaimed solo artist. Music industry accolades include the prestigious Ivor Novello Awards: Songwriter of the Year (1998) and Outstanding Contribution to British Music (2019). His latest recording, ‘Acoustic Hymns Vol.1’, is a salute to key tracks from his repertoire such as ‘A Song For Lovers’ and ‘Break The Night With Colour’ as well as ‘Bitter Sweet Symphony’, ‘The Drugs Don’t Work’ and ‘Lucky Man’ from The Verve’s seminal album ‘Urban Hymns’.

Forest Live is a major outdoor live music series that introduces forests to new audiences in unique, natural woodland arenas around the country. Over 2 million people have attended a Forest Live gig in the last twenty-two 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. Last year they planted some 6.8 million trees, caring for the nation’s 1,500 woods and forests sustainably and welcoming 363 million visits annually.
