Fans can also expect new material from their latest album, ‘A Real Labour of Love’, which is released on March 2nd.
Forest Live is a major live music series, managed by the Forestry Commission. Held every year in seven beautiful forest locations across the country, over 1.5 million people have attended a gig in the programme’s seventeen-year history. With everything required for a great night out, including good food and bar, the concerts are renowned for their informal and relaxed atmosphere set to a spectacular forest backdrop. Income generated from ticket sales helps look after the nation’s forests sustainably, for people to enjoy and wildlife to thrive.
Commenting on the gig, Ali Campbell, the legendary voice of UB40, said “We love the Forest Live gigs. We hope to see you there, so you can join in with the hits in such a beautiful location.”
