Wychwood Music Festival postponed until 2021

Organisers of Wychwood Festival have announced that this year's festival will be postponed until 2021.

Normally taking place at Cheltenham Racecourse at the beginning of June, the 2020 festival would have seen 100 acts performing across four stages including headliners The Divine Comedy and The Christians.

Instead the usual mix of dance, song, arts, crafts, circus, comedy, puppet workshops and much more will take a year break due to the coronavirus epidemic -  returning in June 2021.

A statement published by the festival said: "This difficult decision has been made following government guidelines and advice regarding the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic.

"Our whole team were more excited than ever to welcome you to what was set to be a fantastic edition of Wychwood Festival.

"The safety of our audience, staff, artists and suppliers is our number one priority and given these unprecedented circumstances, it has become clear that the best option is to reschedule the festival.

"We are pleased to say that nearly all artists announced for this year's Wychwood Festival will remain on the line-up with some minor changes to performance dates.

"All tickets for Wychwood Festival 2020 remain valid for the rescheduled date.

"Wychwood Festival is nothing without our audience, you make it the great festival that it is.

"We want to thank you for your patience, support and understanding with us whilst we have been working to reschedule this festival for you."
