Wakey wakey Wickham

It’s exactly two weeks until the music starts!

For early risers, we’ll be opening the arena from 8am this year to weekend season ticket holders. There are breakfasts available plus some morning activities including yoga, Folk Orc workshops and informal ‘Meet the Artist’ sessions and workshops with the likes of Wizz Jones.  This does not include Thursday morning, so those arriving on Wednesday can have a lie in after our free concert at The Wickham Centre or having a drink at the festival bars which will be open on Wednesday evening whilst we finish off the site build.
