Wirral Food, Drink & Music Festival has been postponed until next September.
But the good news is that the event will retain the same musical line-up – headed by Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark – when it takes place.
The festival was due to be held from September 4-6 this year and was expected to attract around 40,000 to the daytime food and drink event and three open air evening concerts.
It will now be staged from September 3-5, 2021, with OMD joined on the bill by fellow Wirral favourites The Coral and by Liverpool’s legendary Echo and the Bunnymen.
Anyone who has already bought tickets for this year’s event will be emailed with the option to transfer them to 2021.
Wirral Council’s Head of Tourism and Destination Marketing, Tracey McGeagh, said: "While we're very disappointed not to be able to go ahead with Wirral Food, Drink & Music Festival this year, our priority has to be people’s safety.
"The 2019 event was a huge success, attracting 30,000 people to Birkenhead Park to sample Wirral’s finest produce and enjoy worldclass music.
"We appreciate it's a little further away than we had originally planned, but the 2021 festival will certainly be worth the wait. We're already busy planning and looking forward to next year’s event."
