The event, which was due to be held on Sunday May 24, is the last of three one-day music festivals which were due to take place in the park over the weekend to be either cancelled or postponed.

UK Live, which organises the festivals, said: “We want to provide our audience with some clarity during this period of unprecedented uncertainty, while prioritising their health and wellbeing. Therefore, it is with great sadness that we have to report that Sunday Sessions, Norwich will now be cancelled.

“Don’t fear though, the outdoor music event will be back next year with a new and exciting line-up.

“We were so looking forward to Sunday Sessions this year and absolutely gutted to have to move it to 2021, but it’s something we absolutely must do as the health and safety of our audience must come first.

“We wish all of you well through the difficult days ahead and sincerely hope to see you in 2021.
