"A fun filled weekend for all the family"
About Wickham FestivalWickham Festival is a 4-day music & arts festival held every August in a stunningly beautiful rural location near the historic village of Wickham in Hampshire. With live music on four stages plus a host of other entertainment, Wickham is rated by many as one of the safest, most relaxed and family-friendly festivals in the UK. We were voted ‘Best UK Festival, cap. under 15000’ at the Live UK Music Business Awards in October 2015. Each year we introduce new ideas and keep what works, so please get involved 0n our social channels to send us feedback ... good or bad. We already have some great plans for 2018 and can't wait to put this into action.
What happened in 2017?Exceeding all previous ticket sales, Wickham Festival 2017 was headlined by KT Tunstall, 10cc and The Levellers. We introduced a late night comedy tent for those that still had energy after the music. We brought back the big screens either side of our main stage and for the first time added a big projection screen outside our main big top so everyone had a great view of what was happening onstage. For our campers we introduced Yoga amongst other morning activities. To keep you relaxed we introduced a chill out area ... OK for 2018 we're looking to resolve kids taking over the hammocks!
We’re somewhat overwhelmed by the videos that get posted on YouTube after our events. They capture some wonderful memories and we can’t thank you enough for your creations. We’re not quite sure how we’ve managed to establish a regular audience with such a friendly outlook. We salute everyone that has visited us in the 16 years since we began. But who knew Wickham Festival was a hotbed for talented movie making? Here are some of our favourite videos.
