Tom Odell has announced a very special tour of the nation’s forests for 2015, performing in seven spectacular woodland venues across England as part of Forest Live.

Tom, with special guest, Rae Morris, will be appearing in this region at Sherwood Pines Forest, Edwinstowe, near Mansfield, on Friday, June 26, and we have a pair of tickets to give away in our fantastic competition.

Tom Odell’s platinum-selling debut album Long Way Down shot straight to number one. Described by The Telegraph as “utterly compelling”, singles from the album including Can’t Pretend, Hold Me and the gargantuan Another Love illustrate a song-writing maturity beyond his years.

This has resulted in his achieving the ultimate industry accolade of Songwriter of the Year at the 2014 Ivor Novello Awards as well as previously winning the BRITs Critics’ Choice Award for 2013.

Chosen to perform the soundtrack to John Lewis Christmas advert, the 24-year-old added his spine-tingling vocals to a cover of John Lennon’s classic Real Love, generating millions of YouTube views. Tom is currently in the studio recording his new album.

Forest Live is an independent programme organised by the Forestry Commission to bring forests to new audiences. Income generated from ticket sales is spent on protecting, improving and expanding England’s forests and woodlands and increasing their value to people and wildlife.

Over Forest Live’s 14 year history, money raised has contributed to a wide range of projects, from wildlife conservation to making improvements for visitors.

With everything required for a great night out, including full catering and bar facilities, the gigs are renowned for their relaxed atmosphere.
