Forest Live 2013

01 July 2013

Throughout July, the Forestry Commission is teaming up with some of the biggest names in music to raise awareness of their work to conserve Britain’s woodland with a series of gigs in forest locations across the country as part of the Forest Live initiative.  Acts including James, Paul Weller, Elvis Costello and Blondie will be performing in Thetford Forest to help raise money for the Commission’s work.  Tickets are selling fast, so you’ll need to be quick!

Thetford Forest is one of the jewels in East Anglia’s crown, offering visitors the chance to enjoy the peace and tranquility of the King’s Forest and West Stow, with their variety of plant and wildlife, or to take it up a gear with the Go Ape! Outdoor Activity Centre.  High Lodge is the hub for the many gigs and events that Thetford Forest plays host to, including Forest Live.  Visitors to the area will be spoilt for choice.  And for those that truly want to spoil themselves, a stay at Bedford Lodge is the icing on the cake.  One of the finest hotels in Suffolk, Bedford Lodge is a short journey away from Thetford Forest and also Bury St Edmunds, Cambridge and Newmarket, making it a great base for exploring East Anglia. 

Bedford Lodge has some fine grounds of its own, nestling in three acres of East Anglian countryside, including some award-winning gardens.  The hotel is situated close to the world-famous Newmarket stables and the grounds are adjacent to the stables and paddocks, adding to Bedford Lodge’s exclusive, typically English ambience.  Inside, Bedford Lodge offers everything you would expect from a luxury Suffolk hotel.  Each one of Bedford Lodge’s 77 opulent guest rooms and suites has been individually designed by top London stylists and comes equipped with the latest technology. This combination of old-meets-new is evident in our newly-refurbished Squires restaurant, where we offer both contemporary dining and traditional favourite meals in stylish-yet-timeless surroundings that comprise one of the best restaurants in Newmarket.

For a great weekend’s music at Forest Live, add a stay at Bedford Lodge in Newmarket to your festival line-up.
