Rock Bodham, which was due to take place on August 1, was first held eight years ago on the playing fields of the village, which sits between Holt and Sheringham.

The two-day event has since raised thousands for local good causes, with the Rock Bodham committee also hosting an annual fireworks display and a children’s Christmas party.

Co-founder Callum Ringer said the committee hoped the festival, which regularly attracts more than 1,000 people, would be held later in the year.

Thanking musicians and supporters, he added: “Should no event be safe to put on this year, then Rock Bodham will be back in 2021 and bands scheduled for this year will be given the first opportunity to join the line-up.
