Olly Murs is the latest star to announce he will play at Sherwood Pines as part of this year’s Forest Live line up.

Due to phenomenal demand for tickets Olly has added an extra date - June 23, at Sherwood Pines - fellow X Factor alumni Louis Johnson will be his support act on the night.

Last year saw Olly Murs celebrate his fourth consecutive number one album 24 HRS, making him the most successful solo artist ever to come from the X Factor.

Since he shot to fame in 2009, Olly has recorded four multi-platinum albums and produced four number one singles with total record sales exceeding ten million.

Olly kicks off three nights of live music at Sherwood Pines. Tom Jones heads the bill on Saturday June 24 and Elbow play on Sunday January 25.

Forest Live is an independent programme promoted by Forestry Commission England to bring forests to new audiences.

Income generated from ticket sales is spent on protecting, improving and expanding forests and woodlands and increasing their value to people and wildlife.

Over Forest Lives 16 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.

Tickets £42.50 (plus £4.75 booking fee) for the Sherwood Pines Forest show go on sale at 9am on Friday March 3, from the Forestry Commission box office. Call 03000 680400, or buy online at www.forestry.gov.uk/music
