"It is with a heavy heart that we have taken this decision as putting PHD together involved a lot of preparation.

"Still, the global COVID-19 outbreak makes it necessary for us to follow expert guidelines of social distancing to minimise the risk of infections.

"While we know that many of you were looking forward to attending the festival, it is crucial that we prioritise the health and safety of all attendees, organisers and the general public.

"With this in mind, we assure you that the Polish Heritage Day is not cancelled, but merely postponed. Currently, we are not able to give you an exact future date, however, we are hoping to be able to celebrate the 80th anniversary of the Battle of Britain as soon as the situation with the COVID-19 pandemic is under control."

The statement added: "Our thoughts go out to everyone affected by the COVID-19 virus in what is an incredibly challenging time."
