Larmer Tree has cancelled this year’s festival due to COVID-19.

The event was set to celebrate its 30th year this July, with The Big Moon, James, Beverley Knight, Jack Savoretti, Frank Turner and The Sleeping Souls, Ward Thomas, Girl Ray, Aaron Smith and loads more.

They explain: “Making this call now will allow us to minimise the impact on a large number of people as they plan the difficult weeks ahead, including the cherished community that has made Larmer Tree happen year after year. Most importantly it will enable us all to focus our efforts on protecting the vulnerable in our society whilst not placing further pressures on the NHS and emergency services.”
