The retro festival was originally planned for June 26 but has now been pushed back following the Government s announcement that the June 21 unlocking date would be delayed.

The team thanked its festival-goers for "staying the course" with them and said they will be "celebrating in style" when back in the field - even if it is "a little later than originally planned".

The Let's Rock Leeds line-up includes Tony Hadley, Kim Wilde and The Gibson Brothers amongst a number of other performers.

Under the Government's road map out of lockdown, the revised date of July 19 has been set for all restrictions to be eased - permitting festivals and large gatherings.

A post on the official Let's Rock Leeds Facebook page said: "**IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT** Following the Government announcement which delayed the further easing of restrictions, we can confirm that LET'S ROCK LEEDS will return to Temple Newsam on SATURDAY 18th SEPTEMBER 2021.
