Paul Weller is the first artist to sign up for next year’s series of gigs in Thetford Forest.

A former member of The Jam and The Style Council, Weller also has eleven albums as a solo artist including his most recent number one Sonik Kicks, the follow-up to 2010’s Mercury Music Prize nominated Wake Up The Nation.

“It will be good for me to be back in the woods,” he said. “I really enjoy the unique atmosphere of these gigs as do the fans.”

Weller, plus special guests yet to be announced, will perform as part of the Forestry Commission’s Forest Live concert programme on July 12.

Tickets, which will cost £39 plus booking fee, will go on sale at 9am on Friday and will be available from the Forestry Commission box office on 03000 680400 or online at www.forestry.gov.uk/music.
