Guy Garvey has announced a special show as part of Forest Live, the Forestry Commission’s summer concert series.

It will take place on Saturday, June 25, at Sherwood Pines, Edwinstowe.

After nearly 25 years and counting as frontman of influential rock band Elbow, Guy Garvey has released his debut solo album, Courting the Squall, including lead single Angela’s Eyes.

The songwriting reflects Guy’s past work at times, the big themes of love and friendship and the lure of his Northern homeland. The critically acclaimed album perfectly illustrates Guy Garvey’s standing as one of the UK’s most recognised and celebrated musicians and lyricists.

Tickets £36 (plus £4.10 booking fee) available from the Forestry Commission box office on 03000 680400 or buy online at forestry.gov.uk/music

Forest Live is an independent programme organised by the Forestry Commission to bring forests to new audiences. Income generated from ticket sales is spent on protecting, improving and expanding England’s forests and woodlands and increasing their value to people and wildlife.

Over Forest Live’s 15 years history, money raised has contributed to a wide range of projects, from wildlife conservation to making improvements for visitors. With everything required for a great night out, including full catering and bar facilities, the gigs are renowned for their relaxed atmosphere.

Guy Garvey said: “I have played Forest Live once before with Elbow so I am really delighted to be performing again in these beautiful locations. “

It should be a magical experience on a summer’s evening in a forest.”
