Hello I just thought I would share this with all you ‘The Darkness’ fans out there. The throw back, 70′s style glam rock band from my nearby hometown of Lowestoft Suffolk, UK. They are performing in Thetford forest on the 14th July 2012 as part of a Forestry Commission initiative promoting live music events around Great Britain. No doubt they will be performing their own hits such as ‘Love is only a feeling’ and ‘Growing on me’.
Our local council, Waveney District are giving away 2 pairs of tickets as part of the competition, which I have entered as I love the band. You just need to answer the following question ‘What is the name of Waveney District Council’s new Estates Ranger? The answer can be found in the Councils Intouch magazine, issue April 2012 or simply try Googling it. If you find out then email the answer to email@example.com. Include your name, a contact number and put ‘The Darkness Tickets’ in the subject box. Competition closes on the 30th April 2012.
Now you may be wondering why I’m writing about this on Eco-homes and gardens, well here come the Eco credentials attached to the event. All profits from the sale of tickets are spent on improving local forests for both people and of course the wildlife that inhabit them. So an excellent excuse to let your hair down and rock to the vibes of The Darkness.
If you are not lucky enough to win tickets then you can buy them from the Forestry Commission, tele: 03000 680400 box office, or online at www.forestry.gov.uk/music
A laid back atmosphere is almost certain at these gigs, full catering and a bar are present.
So Rock and Roll on July…see you there!!
Here’s a taster……
