Organisers wrote in an official statement: "The Eden Sessions series of concerts planned for June and July of this year (2021) will not take place, the Eden Project announced today.

"Regrettably the uncertainties around staging the series due to the impacts of the pandemic and restrictions on outdoor audiences mean that the summer Sessions have had to be postponed. We are working to reschedule the shows."

They added: "When new dates are confirmed, the Eden Project will contact existing ticket-purchasers with details. Original tickets will remain valid for any show that is rescheduled.

"We share the disappointment of ticket-purchasers but we are sure you will understand why the Sessions cannot go ahead this summer.
