    Hooray! Rolled over my tickets from last year, just booked hotel for the 3 nights! Now I have to hope Jelly Belly Bean shop in Wickham is still trading!

    How do you get information on having a trade stand?

    That's a bloody good line-up

    Best news this yr. Have so missed live music. Have my tickets from last yr safely put away.

    Can we roll over to next year if we can't go?

    Have you got covid safety restrictions in place? X

    Best news ive heard since last march, 🎊🎉🎶

    Looks amazing...what a lineup!

    Spent most of last march and April in hospital with covid and have been isolating ever since. You have no idea how much I am looking forward to this.

    Fantastic news ........if Leo Sayer can’t make it .......maybe worth asking The Undertones or The Members to replace him .

    Can I start packing my bags now - very excited! 🎼🎵🎶😃

    Brilliant, I love Show of Hands and Liza Carthy.

    Is Leo Sayer not playing now?

    Is it £60 off the advertised price or is already deducted?

    Yippppoeeeee the government must have heard me asking yous if it’s going ahead

    Excellent news! Bought tickets last year and have been keeping fingers crossed that it goes ahead. Can’t wait to see the SAS band again 😁

    I really hope this goes ahead - been waiting so long & such a fantastic line-up!

    Is there any way of upgrading a day ticket to the full weekend?

    Love Eddi Reader, which day will she be there?

    To get the saving to buy the 4 day adult season ticket do I click on tier 3 weekend plus Thursday plus Friday as I can’t see the season ticket as a one off. Am I being thick?

    All booked...thank you!😎🎵🌼

    Got our tickets and can't wait 🤗🤗🤗🤗
