The extension of lockdown restrictions is expected to lead to a flurry of event cancellations and postponements in the coming weeks, including those that had been pushed forward from last year.

Promoters and officials are pointing towards the cancellation of Glastonbury and other major UK festivals as a sign of things to come here, leading to the postponement or cancellation of huge summer gigs and events.
