The Pogues are the latest act to be announced to perform at the Forestry Commission’s annual concert series in Thetford this summer.

Presenting a compelling hybrid of folk, punk and rock, The Pogues made their mark on the British music scene by producing a string of classic albums.

Their innovative records, played with traditional instruments and electric guitars, created captivating music especially due to the song-writing talent frontman Shane MacGowan.

Revered for their legendary live performances, the band regularly headlines festivals across the world yet the Forest Live date will be their first appearance in the East Anglia in more than a decade.

The Pogues plus guests will perform on Saturday, June 14, in Thetford Forest.

Tickets cost £41.25 and go on sale at 9am on Friday, March 28. Purchase from the Forestry Commission box office on 03000 680400 or at www.forestry.gov.uk/music
