Doves will head to the forest this summer for a spectacular woodland gig.

As part a series of gigs for the Forestry Commission, the band will play Thetford Forest in Suffolk on June 12 and profits from the concert will go to improving woodland for both wildlife and the public.

The band have previously played for the Forestry Commission and Doves’ Jimi Goodwin said, “It was great experience playing to a sold-out crowd at Delamere Forest last summer so we are pleased to announce another forest gig for 2010.”

Tickets go on sale from Friday 15 January from 09:00.
