PAUL Weller has been confirmed as part of the line-up to play at Delamere Forest in the summer.

Weller  has confirmed he will be part of the Forestry Commission’s Forest Live concert programme which will take place in five spectacular woodland locations across the country including Delamere Forest.

Weller exploded onto the UK charts with The Jam in the 1970s.

Blending the best of rock and pop with his love of Motown, Weller crafted a new landscape in the British music scene with an impressive portfolio of solo albums, including Stanley Road, Illumination, 22 Dreams and 2013’s Sonik Kicks all hitting Number One.

A significant figure in popular music for the past three generations, he remains a cultural icon.

Forest Live is an independent programme organised by the Forestry Commission which aims to bring music to new audiences without commercial branding or sponsorship.

Income from the concerts is spent on improving the woodland for both people and wildlife.

Following on from two sold-out Forest Live dates last summer, Weller said: “It’s a favourite summer jaunt for me so I look forward to performing in a few of the forests that I haven’t played in a good while.”

Paul Weller plus special guests will be performing on Friday, July 4 at Delamere Forest, Cheshire.

Tickets priced £46.20 (including booking fee) are on sale from 9am on Friday from the Forestry Commission box office. Call 03000 680400 or buy online at forestry.gov.uk/music
