Gloucestershire gig for Paloma Faith
Paloma Faith is coming to Gloucestershire for a woodland gig.
She is the latest act to announce that she will be performing concerts in seven woodland locations this summer as part of the Forestry Commission's Forest Live concert series. She will perform at Westonbirt Arboretum on June 22.
"I'm really excited about these shows," she said. "It's going to be a great experience so I hope you will be able to join me on my woodland adventure this summer."
Released in 2009, debut album, Do You Want the Truth, or Something Beautiful? was followed by Fall To Grace last year. Her achievements have been recognised by the music industry with Brit Award nominations. Her platinum selling album 'Fall To Grace' is up for Best Album, and she has also been nominated for Best British Female.
"I am delighted to have been nominated for these Brit awards. I don't expect to win, but it's so wonderful to be acknowledged for contributing something to British music. I am very proud to be British and so happy to do something I love."
Forest Live is an independent programme organised by the Forestry Commission, it says, bringing music to new audiences without commercial branding or sponsorship. Income generated from ticket sales is spent on improving the local forests for both people and wildlife.
Paloma Faith plus special guests will be performing at Westonbirt, near Tetbury, plus six other dates.
Tickets costing £32 (subject to booking fee) go on sale at 9m Friday, January 18 from the Forestry Commission box office on 03000 680400 or online at www.forestry.gov.uk/music
