Blondie, fronted by Debbie Harrry, will headline seven Forest Live events including Delamere on Saturday, July 6. The band has had a series of hit singles including Picture This, Denis, Heart of Glass and Maria.

Support will come from Liverpool’s The Lightning Seeds performing an acoustic set of their own hits such as Lucky You and Change.

Tickets for the Delemare Forest event, priced £36, go on sale at 9am today from the Forestry Commission box office on 03000 680400 or online from www.forestry.gov.uk/music
