A concert by Paul Heaton & Jacqui Abbott will be held at Thetford Forest as part of the Forestry Commission’s Forest Live music series this summer – and in today’s competition we have a pair of tickets on offer for this special gig.

The Forest Live gigs will see Heaton and Abbott at Thetford Forest, near Brandon, on Saturday, July 2, playing material from their new album and songs from The Beautiful South and the Housemartins.

Their latest top ten album, Wisdom, Laughter and Lines, includes the singles ‘I Don’t See Them’ and ‘The Austerity of Love’ which was record of the week on BBC Radio 2.

This follows their critically acclaimed, certified gold debut in 2014, What Have We Become, their first recording reunion since the multi-million selling days of The Beautiful South classic albums ‘Miaow’, ‘Blue Is The Colour’ and ‘Quench’ with witty and ironic hits such as ‘Rotterdam’, ‘Don’t Marry Her’ and ‘Perfect 10’.

Forest Live is an independent programme organised by the Forestry Commission to bring forests to new audiences. Income generated from ticket sales is spent on protecting, improving and expanding England’s forests and woodlands and increasing their value to people and wildlife.

Over Forest Live’s 15-year history, money raised has contributed to a wide range of projects, from wildlife conservation to making improvements for visitors.

With everything required for a great night out, including full catering and bar facilities, the gigs are renowned for their relaxed atmosphere.
