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.

    Simon Care in any guise is good for me

    I was pit medic for two of his gigs on the island absolutely brilliant gig and a true gentleman

    The Wonderful Enigmatic Charming Talented Meatloaf xxx

    So sad loved his energy and music

    Iconic album...soundtrack to my university years!❤️ Feeling sad today😥

    Saw him live several times, ran about the stage like a teenager, so much raw energy, such a talent

    He would’ve been top of my wish list to book had I not already been lucky enough to see him live a few years ago. Words cannot express how much talent we have just lost in this man.

    Rest In Peace 🌹🙏

    Was my first ever live gig aged about 14yrs old at Portsmouth Guildhall in the 80s. Sparked a love of live music that still exists today

    Can't wait!! So glad I decided to get a ticket instead of a much needed new kitchen flooring 😊!!!

    My dad is so looking forward to this! Booked after last year & despite the horrendous conditions, you guys went above & beyond!! 👏🏼

    Getting to see my all time favourite band is awesome. The only thing to make it better would be if my favourite solo singer played there again as well… Mr McTell?

    Levellers best UK live original band. Still got my Wickham 2017 set list. Ferocious Dog supported Levellers in the past, but now the dogs bollocks. Really looking forward to seeing both bands.

    I will finally get to see the levellers live, another tick on my bucket list, now if you could just work your magic and get the Thompson Twins my life will be complete

    This is going to be awesome 🤩🤩🤩 Hope there's no clashes!

    When I went, the music was sooo excellent!!! However, there should deffo be less people sat on their arse in chairs🙄😑

    Think it would be great if the solar cinema came back or something similar it was great for a bit of chill time with the children

    Are the Sniffer Dogs coming?

    Any chance big country?
