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.

    St Nicholas Church at Wickham looking lovely in Wednesday's sunshine. As Revd. Jane who took the photo said: 'I never thought I'd be able to take a photo standing in the middle of the usually busy A32'. Lockdown has some benefits! ... See MoreSee Less

    Two artists we've tried to book over the years, so far without success, are Joan Baez & John Prine. John is critically ill on a ventilator thanks to Covid-19. Here's Joan signing his song Hello In There. Get well soon John. ❤️

    Many years ago I gate crashed John Prine's 50th birthday party, I was hitch hiking down through the American south back in 1996... Got to Nashville, walked into a bar and there he was celebrating in the back room with a whole load of his musician friends, including Nanci Griffith if I remember rightly.. Good times... long ago... Get well soon buddy!

    Oh nooooo, John! Bad news, that. He cancelled his gig at Bridgewater Hall about a month ago. Would have loved to see him. Thanks for sharing this Janey, will have a listen now xxx
