BRIT Award nominated singer-songwriter Paloma Faith will perform to a crowd of 5,000 in a 8,600-acre forest this summer.

The vocalist, whose debut album, Do You Want the Truth or Something Beautiful?, generated more than 500,000 sales, said she was looking forward to playing at Dalby Forest, near Pickering, in North Yorkshire.

The 27-year-old Londoner said: “It’s going to be a great experience so I hope you will be able to join me on my woodland adventure this summer.”
