The fourth and final step in easing lockdown restrictions is June 21 and that is the date at which large events and performances can restart with full crowds, along with nightclubs, and any remaining hospitality venues.

The Open Air Theatre shows that will be affected by the rescheduling are: Crowded House, June 8, Lionel Richie, June 12, The Beach Boys, June 13, UB40 featuring Ali Campbell and Astro, June 19, and Ru Paul's Drag Race, June 20.

A spokesman for Cuffe and Taylor, said: “We are pleased yesterday’s announcement provides a roadmap for live shows to return to Scarborough Open Air Theatre this summer.

“However, due to the new government guidelines, it is clear a number of events scheduled before June 21 will need to be rescheduled. We are currently working with artists, their management and production teams to find alternative dates.

“As you can imagine this is a complex process, one which involves multiple organisations, and we would ask customers to please bear with us until we are able to release further details.”
