The event organisers hope that by putting the summer 2021 tickets on sale, this will help to symbolise the positivity surrounding the prestigious event.

Coun. Mary Thomas, chairman of Colne Town Council, said: "The event, in many ways, is the jewel in the crown of, not only Colne's event calendar, but also of the UK Blues Festival calendar.

"The festival attracts thousands of people to Colne each August. It brings the streets and venues alive with music and good times. Colne Town Council were heartbroken to cancel the 2020 festival but it was the sensible and responsible decision to make.

"Let's add the Great British Rhythm & Blues Festival 2021 to the list of things people can look forward to in a brighter future."
