He said: “This will be a whole new experience for me. I can’t wait to bring my live show to the woods and I hope to see you there.”

Income generated from Forest Live ticket sales is spent on protecting, enhancing and expanding England’s forests and woodlands; with projects ranging from wildlife conservation to making improvements for visitors.

Tickets go on sale at 9am, Friday, December 19.

The Script were the first act to be announced for the 2015 Forest Live series, they will play at Thetford on Thursday, July 2.
