The Uckfield Blues & Roots Festival has become the latest music event to be cancelled.

The popular event, intially scheduled for July then moved to October, was cancelled on Saturday.

Organiser Graham Pope said: “I am extremely grateful for all of your support and words of encouragement but the current obstacles and continuing uncertainty around live music events, particularly indoor events, have made it impossible to continue.”

The Festival, whose line up featured Joel White Band, Oliver Darling and King Size Slim, was due to take place predominantly at Uckfield Civic Centre, with the Sunday held at The Highlands Inn.

The event will now be planned to take place in July 2021, with refunds arranged for 2020 ticket purchases.
