Organisers have announced the postponement of this year’s Bromyard Folk Festival, due to run from September 10 to 13, until September 2021. "This decision has been very difficult to time and make," says festival director Lynne Barker, "but as we reached June the realisation came that our everyday lives will be changing and with current Government predictions we will not be permitted to hold indoor gatherings with close contact for the foreseeable future.

"We are, as a team, determined to concentrate now on arrangements for next year, and we are delighted that this year’s line up of artists have agreed to perform alongside many more to be announced in due course. It should be a festival worth waiting for."

Ticket holders will be contacted shortly and offered the option of transferring tickets to the 2021 festival or requesting a full refund.
