Quirky soul singer Paloma Faith will be one of the musical stars performing at Delamere Forest this summer.
The superstar makes her return to Cheshire on July 3, two years after she first wowed sell-out audiences at the Forestry Commission’s annual series of outdoor concerts at different venues around the country.
Paloma, best known for her hits Stone Cold Sober and Only Love Can Hurt Like This, is the latest act to be announced to play at Delamere, alongside award-winning singer-songwriter Tom Odell, who has already been confirmed to perform on July 4. He first shot to fame in June 2013 when his certified-gold debut album, Long Way Down, went straight to number one.
The Forestry Commission concerts are now in their fourteenth year and a plethora of big names including Blondie, Paul Weller and Jools Holland have played at Delamere in recent years.
Proceeds from the concerts’ ticket sales is mainly spent on protecting, improving and expanding the forests and woodlands and increasing their value to people, but money raised has also contributed to a wide range of projects, from wildlife conservation to making improvements for visitors.
Paloma Faith said: “I am so excited to do the forest tour. I did it before and had such a wonderful time. We are very lucky in Britain to have such a beautiful and diverse landscape and I am excited to play for you there again. See you all in the summer. ”
Tickets, which cost £38.50 (plus a £3.85 booking fee) go on sale from 9am on Friday January 23 from the Forestry Commission box office and you can either call 03000 680400, or buy online at www.forestry.gov.uk/music.
