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.

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