Rebecca Ferguson is the final headline act to be announced for this summer’s Forest Live gigs, which will see her perform at Thetford Forest in June.

The X Factor runner-up, who lost out to winner Matt Cardle in 2010, is often regarded as the most naturally talented singer to emerge from the series’ of singing competitions.

Her million selling debut album, Heaven, launched her in a blaze of critical acclaim in 2011 and went on to become double platinum in the UK, generating hit singles Nothing’s Real But Love and Teach Me How To Be Loved.

Rebecca’s new album, Freedom, has provided her with another Top 10 release. Featuring the singles I Hope and All That I’ve Got, it has already achieved gold in album sales.

She will be performing at Thetford Forest on Thursday June 12.

Tickets, priced at £36.30 including booking fee, go on sale at 9am on Friday.

Thetford Forest will also see performances by Suede (June 13), The Pogues (June 14), Boyzone (July 11), Katherine Jenkins (July 12) and Deacon Blue (July 13).

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.

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