Jools Holland has announced a special open-air forest concert with his Rhythm & Blues Orchestra featuring guest vocalists Marc Almond (Westonbirt) and Eddi Reader (Bedgebury).

They'll be playing on a greenfield site in a clearing of the forest, with the stage specially built.

The dates and venues are:
Saturday 7th June : Bedgebury Pinetum & Forest, Nr Goudhurst, Kent.
Friday 18th July : The National Arboretum, Westonbirt, near Tetbury, Glos.

Tickets are £30 (plus booking fee) for each date, to buy tickets click here.

Both shows will have support acts.

Disabled users:
There is a disabled parking at every site and they all have a wheelchair platform although the nice thing is because of the arena’s design wheelchair users often spend the time with their group as there is plenty of space and it is flat. There is a hotline number to call for further information: 01842 814612.

No glass or cans allowed.

The concerts are a vital part of Forestry Commission's drive to attract more and new people into Britain's forests and to help protect England's precious woodland resource. All profits from the concerts are put back into local projects and give valuable support to the Commission's work. In recent years, these have included habitat creation for endangered butterflies; health projects to encourage the young and old to get out and about in the natural environment and installing woodfuel heating systems to help contribute towards the fight against climate change.

More information will be here when available.
