Paloma Faith has announced a return to Westonbirt Arboretum this summer as part of Forest Live, the Forestry Commission’s outdoor concert series.

She performed to sell-out crowds in 2013 during the Forest Live tour.

Paloma’s third album ‘A Perfect Contradiction’ was one of the huge success stories of 2014 and her fastest selling album to date, going platinum and scoring hit singles with, ‘Only Love Can Hurt Like This’ and ‘Can’t Rely On You’.

As a side project she notched up her first number one collaborating with British drum and bass duo Sigma on the single ‘Changing’.

Her debut album ‘Do You Want The Truth Or Something Beautiful?’ and follow-up ‘Fall To Grace’ have also contributed to sales of over 1.7 million in the UK alone.
