Headliners Madness said: ‘For the love of the common people, but especially the emergency services, you’ve been busy lately and we’d like you to come and let your hair down.

Great day off

‘Come to Clapham Common, on us, have a great day off then go back to looking after us all!

‘We thank you and appreciate you.’

Nurses will need to register their email address at the loveforthecommonpeople website for a free ticket, and ID is required to gain entry to the event.

Gesture of gratitude

A statement on the festival website reads: ‘London and its people continue to be the most incredible in the world.

‘The way our city pulls together time and time again is simply phenomenal – especially the way the emergency services react to protect the people who live in this great city.

‘As a gesture of gratitude, and to celebrate London’s ongoing brilliance, Madness are extending an extra special invitation to nurses, doctors, emergency services, police, the fire brigade and teachers across London to join the fun at this year’s House of Common festival free of charge.’
