Chart-topping acts will return to Thetford Forest this summer, with the first 2023 name announced.

The outdoor series of gigs take place in woodland locations across the country and they are presented by Forestry England to support conservation projects.

The first act announced for Thetford is singer-songwriter Jack Savoretti, who will perform at High Lodge in the forest on Sunday, June 18.

Since his initial breakthrough with BBC Radio 2 airplay in 2006, a succession of crafted albums has earned him an impressive career.

His albums Singing to Strangers (2019) and Europiana (2021) both hit the number one spot on the album charts.

His songs have also featured in TV and film such as Grey’s Anatomy, The Vampire Diaries and One Tree Hill.

Jack Savoretti said: "I look forward to sharing all the new music we have been releasing with you in these incredible settings.”

Tickets go on sale at 9am Friday, October 21 on the Forestry England website.
