Sir Bruce to play Hop Farm festival

Sir Bruce Forsyth will perform at this year's Hop Farm music festival

Sir Bruce Forsyth has signed up to share a stage with Bob Dylan, Suede and Primal Scream at this year's Hop Farm Music Festival.

The veteran entertainer is performing with his big band at the festival in Paddock Wood, Kent.

Its organiser, Vince Power, said: "I am honoured to have the legend that is Sir Bruce come down and make his debut appearance at the Hop Farm this year.

"Not only has he never appeared at a festival, he's never been to a festival. He has been in this business for over 70 years and is a true, true legend, he will be the talking point of the festival."

Sir Bruce, who presents the hit BBC show Strictly Come Dancing, recently made his musical comeback by releasing an album of standards after signing a deal with EMI, including a duet with his granddaughter Sophie Purdie.

The three-day festival, which prides itself on being independent and has no VIP areas and a back-to-basics style, kicks off on Friday June 29.
