JESS Glynne has become the latest big name to confirm a show at Cheshire's Delamere Forest as part of Forest Live 2019, the summer concert series promoted by the Forestry Commission.

The 29-year-old London-born singer will play Delamere on Sunday June 23 with tickets going on sale on Friday December 7.

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. At the time of writing it has been a chart staple for 170 weeks with triple platinum sales. 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. Glynne's second studio album, Always In Between also debuted at Number 1 in the UK with more success coming with the singles All I Am and I'll Be There, a seventh chart topper giving Glynne the record for most Number 1 singles scored by a British female solo artist.

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 last eighteen years. 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.

Commenting on the shows, 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.”
