THE Forestry Commission is hosting a number of top gigs at Thetford Forest this year and we’ve got got a pair of tickets to win for three great nights of music.

Blondie have confirmed a very special tour of the nation’s woodlands and will be performing their hits at Thetford on June 15.

Blondie emerged from New York’s celebrated new wave scene producing innovative music with their rock/disco, reggae and hip-hop influenced songs. Fronted by pop icon Deborah Harry, their ground-breaking material brought them a stash of hit singles such as Denis, (I’m Always Touched by Your) Presence Dear, Picture This and Rapture. Few acts can match their 20 year span of No 1’s and their singles success complemented by more than 40 million album sales that include classic recordings like Plastic Letters, Parallel Lines and Eat to The Beat has ensured worldwide superstar status for this pioneering band.

Special guest will be The Lightning Seeds performing an acoustic set of their perfect pop songs like Pure, Lucky You and Change.
