"While we appreciate that this is short notice, circumstances beyond our control mean that we are not in the position to stage the amazing day that we want to deliver for you all. If you would please bear with us we will update you all on our plans for next year as soon as we can and at that point you can roll your ticket over or request a refund.

"We thank you for your understanding and if you want to join us on Saturday for the NHS/Key Worker festival there are a limited number of free tickets that have come back available.”

Award-winning singer Emeli Sandé will be headlining the Saturday of the event, which will include artistes Karen Harding and Sons of Eden, along with top DJs Fat Tony, Carly Wilford, Richard Tulip, Tony Hutchinson and James Haskell.
