Grantham's popular Gravity Fields Festival is postponed for two years because of coronavirus outbreak
This year's Gravity Fields Festival has been postponed for two years because of the coronavirus outbreak.
The popular festival, which is held in Grantham every two years, was due to be held in September, but South Kesteven District Council says that restrictions on movement could still be in place by then, making it impossible to hold the event.
A spokesman for the district council said: "There is no guarantee that movement and gathering restrictions will be lifted, by September 2020, to such an extent that the Gravity Fields Festival 2020 would be able to be held. In addition, the absence of Arts Council funding and likely impact of Covid-19 on sponsorship and ticket sales present serious challenges to the finances of the festival.
