A popular charity music festival is set to return to the Hertfordshire countryside later this year.

Having cancelled last year's show due to the coronavirus pandemic, organisers have confirmed they are going ahead with Wilkestock 2021.

After taking a year off, the festival is due to take place at its usual site in Frogmore Hill near Stevenage on new dates from Friday, September 24 to Sunday, September 26.

Featuring various live music stages and DJ stages, it will be for over 18s only on the Friday and Saturday, and open to all on the Sunday.
