Kew The Music festival 2020 has been postponed due to the coronavirus pandemic.

The summer extravaganza's organisers have confirmed that the series of concerts, which were due to be headlined by the likes of James Blunt and Bananarama and take place between July 7 and July 11 at London's Royal Botanical Kew Gardens, have been rescheduled for 2021, with Jack Savoretti the only artist unable to make their new dates.

In a statement, they said: ''Our number one priority at this time is the health and wellbeing of our customers, crew and artists.
