Tickets are set to go on sale this Friday

The Wombats have announced that they will be playing a special one-off concert at Cheshire’s Delamere Forest, taking place on Sunday July 8.

The show will be held as part of the Forestry Commission Live Music series, which will also be hosting live performances from Plan B and The Darkness next summer. The organisation, which aims to bring music to audiences without commercial branding or sponsorship, will spend the income generated from the sale of tickets on bettering local forests.

Speaking ahead of event, vocalist Matthew Murphy said:

We have heard so much about the vibe at Delamere Forest gigs, it’s been on our radar for some time and we’re really pleased to be asked to play – here’s to a ‘Party in a Forest’.

The Wombats have recently finished touring the UK in support of the release of their latest album, ‘This Modern Glitch’, which finished with three hometown shows in Liverpool. They will be returning to London in February to play at O2 Academy Brixton, as well as headline shows at Portsmouth Guildhall and Warwick University.

Tickets for the band’s Delamere Forest show, priced at £25.50, are set to go on sale this Friday (December 16) at 9am, and can be ordered from, or by calling the Forestry Commission box office at 03000 680400.
