Michelmores has advised Forestry England on a contract which will see the organisation work with Cuffe and Taylor to deliver Forest Live shows.
Forest Live is a major outdoor live music series that introduces forests to new audiences in unique, natural woodland arenas around the country.
Forestry England manages 1,500 of the nation’s woods and forests. Its land has been used to stage the Forest Live concert series for the past 22 years, during which two million people have attended the shows.
Live Nation’s Cuffe and Taylor has agreed to an exclusive seven-year contract to present Forestry England’s major outdoor live music series, involving a series of sustainability initiatives delivered in line with Forestry England’s net zero ambitions.
Live Nation has also said it has aspirations to present up to 32 concerts a year to a combined audience of more than 250,000 people at sites in Staffordshire, Cheshire, Suffolk, Gloucestershire, Kent, North Yorkshire and Nottinghamshire.
