The summer concert series at Thetford Forest has been cancelled.
Forestry England said it had cancelled Forest Live 2020 to 'keep everyone safe in line with recent government guidance on the coronavirus outbreak'.
It added: "We really hope that everyone’s support to fight COVID-19 means the situation will have improved by the summer however, as well as our valued customers, we work with a large number of volunteers, artists and contractors, to make these concerts happen and have taken this decision in the interest of safety for everyone involved.
"Unfortunately, it is not possible for us to reschedule our concerts.
"Ticket holders will be contacted by their point of purchase and will be automatically refunded. We ask for your patience and understanding at this busy time.
"We would like to send our deepest apologies to everyone who was hoping to see a Forest Live 2020 show. We were very excited to welcome you into forests across England to see some incredible live music.
"Thank you for your continued support and we look forward to welcoming you back to Forest Live in 2021."
