George Ezra to play Westonbirt Arboretum

Bristol's George Ezra is headed back to the West Country to perform at a popular summer concert series.

The singer, who is one of the biggest selling male artists of the decade, will play in front of thousands at Forest Live at Westonbirt Arboretum.

George studied and lived in Bristol, as made his big break at Glastonbury

The concerts, organised by the Forestry Commission, have attracted a number of big names to the Tetbury woodlands, including Elton John and Little Mix.

He will play in on Sunday 17 June and all money generated from ticket sales goes back into maintaining the forests in a sustainable way.

Details on how to get hold of tickets from Monday 27 November 2017 can be found on the Forestry Commission's website.
