The gigs would have seen the forest’s High Lodge transformed into a festival like-arena.

But a Forestry England spokesman said: “We are sorry to disappoint the Forest Live fans who were hoping to see bands in the nation’s forests this summer but we have cancelled Forest Live 2020 to keep everyone safe in-line with recent government guidance.

“Ticket holders will be contacted by their point of purchase and will be automatically refunded.”
