Madness will be performing at Thetford Forest in Suffolk next summer.

Drawing on their musical roots in ska, Madness were responsible for some of the most credible pop compositions of the eighties with their ability to write songs that sparkle with the spirit of British life. Creating their trademark 'nutty' sound, they spent more weeks in the charts in that decade than any other group, with classic hits such as One Step Beyond, My Girl, Baggy Trousers and House Of Fun.

Famous for their legendary live shows, their performances exude good-humour and exuberance. In 2019, the band celebrated their 40th Anniversary, including the book release Before We Was We: Madness by Madness and sold out Roundhouse dates in their London home town, testament to their enduring popularity as they enter the next phase of their incredible career.
