Forestry England uses the money Forest Live raises to maintain its natural areas for everyone to enjoy, run important conservation projects and keep growing trees.

Last year the organisation 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.

Gigs will take place at six forests throughout England – Delamere, Dalby, Sherwood Pines, High Lodge Thetford, Westonbirt Arboretum and Cannock Chase.
