Olly Murs is playing a concert at Westonbirt Arboretum this summer as part of the Forest Live series of special events.

The former X Factor contestant plus special guests will be performing at the arboretum on Sunday, June 23.

Tickets cost £35.00 (subject to booking fee) and go on sale 9am on Friday, February 15.

The success Olly Murs has experienced over the past four years is nothing short of phenomenal, with the release of three multi-platinum selling albums:

‘Olly Murs’ (2010), ‘In Case You Didn’t Know’ (2011) and last year’s ‘Right Place Right Time’.

He also managed the rare feat of being top of the album and singles chart simultaneously when ‘Troublemaker’ featuring Flo Rida hit the top spot for a second week.

Further singles success with hits like ‘Heart Skips A Beat’, ‘Please Don’t Let Me Go’, ‘Busy’, ‘Dance With Me Tonight’ and ‘Oh My Goodness’ have ensured his catchy pop tunes a sustained presence in the charts and on radio station playlists.

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

Income generated from ticket sales is spent on caring for the internationally important tree collection at Westonbirt Arboretum and improving it for both people and wildlife.

Tickets for Olly Murs wil be on sale from the Forestry Commission box office from February 15 - call 03000 680400 or buy online at Forestry.gov.uk/music

    Thanks for the warning,we will make sure we give the Arboretum a wide birth,and instead visit a few bars in Bristol where one can view,and listen to vocalists of both sexes who can actuall sing,why anyone would even consider paying £35 to witness this talentless guy is beyond us.

    My daughter and I really love Olly and his music and would love to go to this concert. Unfortunately due to the ridiculous cost of the ticket (£35 each before booking fee) there is no chance at all of us going :( this is on par with starting prices for stadium tickets, to be standing in a field! :(
