The day the music starts – for those travelling in today…

 

The rain finally relented at around 3am and the forecast for today and the rest of the weekend is much improved.  We should hit a dizzying height of 20°C.  Today will be windy but we’re hoping that will help dry out the ground.  The tented campsites are in good condition. We’re planning to open the mixed camping field at 10am which is also in good condition. The entrance for mixed camping is located at the Junction of Blind Lane, Frith Lane and Pricketts Hill.

This time next week – Saturday 5th August 2017

It’s incredible to think that this time next week we’ll be in full flow meeting familiar faces and spending time with like-minded folk. We also know this year there are many new visitors to Wickham.  We’ve sold tickets in America, Argentina, Australia, Scandinavia and of course all corners of Britain.   Wickham is a quaint English village set in the Hampshire’s Meon valley full of history, providing the perfect setting for a break to soak up some culture.

This time next week – Friday 4th August 2017

Next Friday Wickham Festival 2017 will be well underway with the first full day line up of music. As I write this post at 9.30pm, in precisely 7 days we would have just enjoyed Seth Lakeman. To celebrate our 10th festival at Wickham we wanted to return to our roots with a very strong folk line up, which had to include Seth…

    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?

    Jun Kershaw

    Elaine Puddicombe you going this year?
