Forest Live Pre-sales 2017

What is a Pre-sale?

A pre-sale is an opportunity to buy concert tickets ahead of them going on sale to the general public.

Previous Forest Live customers, Discovery Pass holders, Friends of Bedgebury and Friends of Westonbirt who have opted in to receive email communications will receive an email when a pre-sale is available to them, giving the opportunity to purchase tickets a day before general sales start.  Full details of how to purchase pre-sale tickets will be provided in the email.  

Pre-sale tickets can be purchased online only via the special link provided in the notifying email, they cannot be purchased from the Forestry Commission Box Office page or by telephone.

Check in advance that you can log in to your account

When you previously bought your Discovery Pass or event or concert tickets from the Forestry Commission a customer account was created for you on our ticket sales system.

To speed up your purchase we strongly recommend to check that you can log in to your account in advance of tickets going on sale and if necessary reset your password.

If you are a Friend of Bedgebury or a Friend of Westonbirt and have not purchased from the Forestry Commission Box Office before you may need to create a new account.
