Luxury Camping at Wickham

Fancy some luxury camping at Wickham?  For 2014 we’ve teamed-up again with the lovely people at Festival Glamping to offer you the chance to camp in luxury Touareg Canvas tents that sleep up to four people, have large doors, full head room, netted ventilation flaps and come equipped with airbeds, rugs, solar lights and other little luxuries that make them so much more comfortable than camping on rock hard ground.  Have a look at their website www.festivalglamping.com for booking details and prices.  If you’ve already paid £25 for a camping ticket at Wickham, Festival Glamping will give you a £25 discount if you upgrade to a luxury Touareg Canvas tent.  Plus… everyone booking Festival Glamping will also receive exclusive backstage VIP tickets for the whole Festival giving access to the exclusive backstage VIP bar, side-of-stage VIP viewing area and, most important, luxury loos!  And the Glamping Field will have its own ‘Posh Wash’ Showers and Luxury Loos with washing facilities in 2014.

    Ooo, hope it is nice and early! might I suggest they parade around the camping fields for the listening pleasure of those who may have forgotten to pack alarm clocks and might otherwise miss the glory of a Hampshire dawn......

    Can anyone please tell me if I need to print my tickets? Help!

    What time on Thursday will the ticket office be open please?

    Sooo glad you’ve held out and are going ahead! Best way imaginable to celebrate Wendy Carter’s 60th birthday.🙂

    Getting excited. So looking forward to it

    Well done for your hard work. So looking forward to a brilliant weekend.

    Just done 10 days volunteering at Ventnor Fringe 2021 ! Looking forward to relaxing at Wickham. X

    Enjoy your big day Wendy Carter 🎂🎉wish l could be with you.. Sounds like it is a great gig 😘

    Really looking forward to our first Wickham festival

    I feel like I'm cheating on Cambridge (we've been seeing each other now since 1987) but I'm very much looking forward to Wickham.

    Really excited for this!

    I need to talk to someone about a change in circumstances which means I may need to swap tickets any chance of a reply before Wednesday because I have emailed twice and not had a reply.

    Who is on at the community centre on Wednesday?

    How do we book parking? Is it free with tickets or do we need to pay? Wickham Music Festival

    We're heading down from Cumbria on Wednesday. Is there a map of the festival site please?

    Where can I see Thursday line up?

    We have full festival tickets but cannot arrive until Friday. Will we struggle for camping space?

    When is it happening?
