Forest Live 2017

Author: Catherine

We asked you to share your photos and memories with us on social media – here are some of the highlights.

Forest Live 2017 has been amazing! Glorious weather, beautiful surroundings, and great live music with Elbow, Olly Murs, Rick Astley and Craig David all performing. What more could you want from a summers evening?


"What an excellent evening we had! Olly is a great entertainer
and had everyone on their feet."

- Sue Owen on Facebook


"Beautiful place great for concerts! Rick belted out the tunes and it was so well organised! Thanks to all."

- Joanne Manton on Facebook


"In 1993, I sat atop Dads shoulders watching @rickastley in Torquay. On Sat, my daughter sat atop mine at Westonbirt. Such a special night."

- Ladey Grey on Twitter



Here's the lucky winner of our ticket competition, Patricia Oates, with her sister. She won tickets to see Rick Astley at this year’s Forest Live! We loved her description of what makes Forest Live concerts so special:

“The most beautiful surroundings, entertained by stars under the stars!”

Well done Patricia.
