George Ezra is the latest act to be announced as part of the series of concerts to be held at Westonbirt Arboretum this summer.

Meanwhile, fans of the Forest Live gigs are still waiting to see who will be announced as the headliner for the Saturday night in the long weekend of performances, which run from 14 to 17 June.

Irish rock band The Script have already been announced for the Thursday night, and former Beautiful South members Paul Heaton and Jacqui Abbott will play the following evening.

George Ezra will play on Sunday, 17 June.

One of the biggest selling male artists of the decade, George Ezra is due to release his highly anticipated second album in March 2018.

His debut album Wanted On Voyage reached number 1 in the Official UK Chart and was amongst the top 10 biggest-selling artist albums in the country in both 2014 and 2015.

He returned last summer with new single Don’t Matter Now and the sold out TOP SECRET Tour. He was also active on the summer festival circuit, with performances at Glastonbury, V Festival, TRNSMT and the Isle of Wight.

Hailing from Dublin, The Script have sold over 29 million records. Their latest release, Freedom Child, topped the UK Official Albums Chart and scored the band their fourth UK No 1 album.

Paul Heaton first came to public attention in the early 80s as front man of Hull-based The Housemartins.

In 1988, he formed The Beautiful South, who released 10 successful albums.

Jacqui Abbott was lead vocalist in The Beautiful South from 1994 to 2000, and she sang many of their signature hits including Rotterdam, Perfect 10 and Don’t Marry Her.
