One of the biggest selling artists of the decade is playing at Westonbirt Arboretum as part of the summer concert series.

George Ezra will perform new songs from his highly-anticipated second album which will be released in March.

His debut album Wanted On Voyage sold four million copies in the UK and was among the top 10 best-selling artist albums in the country in 2014 and 2015.

In 18 months, Ezra went from virtual unkown to one of the international breakthrough artists of recent times – with a top 10 album in three countries, three sell-out UK tours a BBC Music Award and an Ivor Novello Award.

George Ezra will perform on a stage in the woodland at the arboretum, near Tetbury, Gloucestershire, on June 17 as part of the Forest Live programme.

Tickets, priced £34.50, are available online at forestry.gov.uk/music or by calling 03000 680400.
