Jess Glynne is to play at Delamere Forest next summer as part of Forest Live 2019.

The summer concert series is organised by the Forestry Commission with Tears for Fears and Paul Weller already confirmed.

In 2014 a guest spot on Clean Bandit’s omnipresent pop-house smash ‘Rather Be’ brought Jess Glynne to prominence and with her debut album ‘I Cry When I Laugh’ the following year, she delivered one of the defining British pop records of the era.

Her powerhouse vocal and fearless delivery have captured so many under her spell across a succession of hit singles such as ‘Right Here’, ‘Real Love’, ‘Hold My Hand’ and ‘Don't Be So Hard On Yourself’.

Forest Live is a major outdoor live music series held every summer by Forestry Commission England in seven beautiful forests.

Over 1.75 million people have attended a forest gig in the past 18 years.

A spokesman for the Forestry Commission said: “With everything required for a great night out, including good food and drink, the concerts are renowned for their informal and relaxed atmosphere set to a spectacular forest backdrop. Money raised from ticket sales helps to look after the nation’s forests sustainably, for people to enjoy and wildlife to thrive.”

Jess Glynne said: “I do hope you can join me in the summer as part of Forest Live. I am really looking forward to performing in these unique woodland locations around the country”.

Jess Glynne will play at Delamere Forest on Sunday, June 23.
