Westonbirt to host Paloma Faith
PUBLISHED: 10:00 25 January 2015
AFTER bringing a staggering number of huge headliners to the South West last year, Forestry Live has done it again - Paloma Faith is to deliver a woodland performance in the summer.
It is a very welcome return for the artist who performed to sell-out crowds in 2013 in the seven spectacular woodland locations featured in the Forestry Commission’s outdoor concert series.
In case you missed her the first time, the eccentric songstress is singing once more and is stopping just up the road in Tetbury.
Paloma’s third album, A Perfect Contradiction, was a huge success last year and was her fastest-selling album so far.
It secured a platinum certification and contains a number of hit singles, including Only Love Can Hurt Like This and Can’t Rely On You.
Paloma scored her first number one hit single, Changing, with a collaborative effort, working with British drum and bass duo Sigma.
Despite having only three records released so far, the pocket-sized redhead has secured a staggering 1.7 million record sales in the UK alone.
As if a night of great music in a stunning setting isn’t enough – your money will be going to a good cause.
Money raised through ticket sales is spent on protecting, improving and expanding England’s forests for the wildlife within.
As well as the natural surroundings, there will be full catering and bar facilities available.
She will be taking the stage at Westonbirt Arboretum on June 19, with the time to be confirmed.
Tickets, priced £38.50, go on sale at 9am tomorrow (Friday) and can be purchased from the box office on 03000 680400 or online at www.forestry.gov.uk/music
