Scouting For Girls

Scouting For Girls has announced a woodland date for next summer as part of the Forestry Commission Live Music programme taking place in the region at Westonbirt Arboretum, Gloucestershire. 

Fronted by the exuberant showman Roy Stride, Scouting For Girls’ eponymous debut album generated a clutch of infectious hits, including ‘She’s So Lovely’, ‘Heartbeat’, ‘It’s Not About You’ and ‘Elvis Ain’t Dead’, all becoming regular fixtures on radio playlists across the country. 2010 has seen the release of their second album, ‘Everybody Wants To Be On TV’, continuing the form of the first with more insatiably irresistible pop anthems like ‘Famous’, ‘Don’t Want To Leave You’, ‘Take A Chance On Us’ and the No 1 single ‘This Ain’t A Love Song’. 

Forestry Commission Live Music introduces some music fans to a woodland environment for the first time. Many of them come back to enjoy the beautiful surroundings for healthy and fun outdoor recreation including walking and watching wildlife. 

Scouting For Girls will be performing at: 

  • Westonbirt Arboretum, Nr Tetbury, Gloucestershire on Sunday 19th June

 Tickets £28.00 (subject to booking fee) go on sale at 9.00am Friday 17th December from the Forestry Commission box office tel 03000 680400 or buy online at



Notes to Editor

  1. Forestry Commission Live Music takes place each summer in seven forests locations around the country. Woodland clearings are temporarily transformed into a concert arena creating a safe and relaxed atmosphere for gig-goers.

  2. Forestry Commission Live Music encourages people to visit forests who may not have otherwise done so. Research indicates that 44% of music fans are visiting a forest for the first time. 95% of attendees stated that they were interested in attending a similar event in the future. Overall, 78% of respondents indicated that they were interested in returning to the site of their interview for reasons other than attending a concert. Source: TNS Travel and Tourism.
