British rock royalty Elbow will be one of the bands gracing the stage at Theford Forest this summer as part of a concert series promoted by the Forestry Commission – and we have three pairs of tickets to give away to some lucky winners.

Elbow’s rise over the past two decades has seen them become one of the most important bands in contemporary British music.

Since debut album, 2001’s ‘Asleep In The Back’ their stature has grown with subsequent releases such as ‘Leaders Of The Free World’, ‘The Seldom Seen Kid’, ‘Build A Rocket Boys’ and 2017’s ‘Little Fictions’ that debuted at the top of the U.K. charts.

Front man Guy Garvey’s story-telling lyrics have honed their unique identity and sound to establish the band a passionate fan base and critical acclaim on their musical journey including two Ivor Novellos and a BRIT award for Best British Band.

Renowned for the intimacy of their live shows, stand-out gigs include Glastonbury Festival’s sunset slot with a trio of sets on the Pyramid Stage, taking part in the closing ceremony of the 2012 Olympic Games performing their classic track ‘One Day Like This’ and recreating their Mercury Prize winning album, ‘The Seldom Seen Kid’, with the BBC Concert Orchestra from the world famous Abbey Road Studio One.
