Let’s Rock Norwich, due to take place in Earlham Park over the May Bank Holiday weekend, has been postponed due to the coronavirus outbreak.

The popular festival, which saw 12,000 people attend in 2019, has been moved from Saturday, May 23 to Saturday, September 26, when it is hoped that the restrictions on public gatherings will be lifted.

Let’s Rock takes place in 12 locations across the UK, celebrating the music of the eighties, and the Norwich 2020 line-up included Wet Wet Wet, The Boomtown Rats and Kim Wilde - it is currently unknown if all acts will be able to perform on the new date.

In a statement on the Let’s Rock Norwich Facebook page, they said: “We would like to say a huge thank you for your loyalty and understanding during these exceptional times.
