Gary Barlow is heading to Thetford Forest next year.

The Take That star is the first Forest Live 2018 act to be revealed. He’ll perform there on June 8.

The singer and record producer said: “I’m really looking forward to these gigs. I’ve never played Forest Live before so I hope to see you there.”

Gary’s one of the country’s most successful songwriters, having written 14 number one singles as well as being a six-time winner of an Ivor Novello Award. He’s penned songs for the likes of Dame Shirley Bassey, Sir Elton John and his Take That band-mate Robbie Williams.

He’s also composed music for theatre shows including Finding Neverland, The Girls and The Band.
