Cheltenham Music Festival has been cancelled for 2020 due to the ongoing impact of the Coronavirus outbreak.
Organisers say that Cheltenham Literature Festival due to take place as planned in October will expand to incorporate elements from the three cancelled events.
PR and communications manager Baibre Lloyd said: ‘We had been optimistic that our Music Festival could still go ahead in July, but because of the continuing impact of the COVID-19 virus, we must put the safety of our audiences, artists, staff and volunteers first. We are sorry for this additional disappointment, following the cancellation of our Jazz and Science Festivals.
‘At the forefront of our minds are the wonderful artists and ensembles who will no longer be able to perform in Cheltenham this summer. We are working hard to find a way to bring them back as soon as we can.
‘We are delighted to announce that our Literature Festival in October will be expanded to include some of the most popular elements of our Jazz, Science and Music Festivals.’
