Forest Live comes to Thetford Forest!

Forest Live is a major live music series, managed by the Forestry Commission. Held every summer in seven beautiful forest locations across the country, over 1.5 million people have attended a gig in the programme’s seventeen-year history.

Twenty-one million people currently visit the nation’s forests every year, with 99.9% of England’s population living within 1 hour’s drive of a Forestry Commission wood or forest.

Forest Live is an independent programme organised by the Forestry Commission to bring forests to new audiences.

With everything required for a great night out, including good food and drink, the concerts are renowned for their informal and relaxed atmosphere set to a spectacular forest backdrop.

Income generated from ticket sales helps to look after the nation’s forests sustainably, for people to enjoy and wildlife to thrive.
