The Pogues bring their compelling hybrid of folk, punk and rock to Thetford Forest next month as part of the Forestry Commission’s Forest Live concert series - and you could be among the crowd.
We have teamed up with the Forestry Commission to give away a pair of tickets to the concert, on Saturday, June 14.
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 of inimitable 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 Anglian region for more than a decade.
Forest Live is an independent programme organised by the Forestry Commission bringing music to new audiences without commercial branding or sponsorship. Income generated from ticket sales is spent on improving the local forests for both people and wildlife.
