Firstly, we’d like to say a huge thank you for your patience and support while we’ve been navigating our way through this very difficult time – it really does mean so much to all our Wickham Festival Team.
With the sun shining, lockdown easing, open-air markets & other venues opening, we thought you might like an update on this year’s Wickham Festival.
First & foremost, the health & safety of all our artists, audience, staff & suppliers along with our local Wickham community must come first. Our Festival can only go-ahead if it’s felt safe for it do so in 10 weeks time.
We’ve just sent out an email to our mail list subscribers. Below is a facsimile of this communication for those of you not subscribed. You can join our mailing list towards the bottom of this page.
Hello! The Prime Minister has announced the closure of all public entertainment venues for the foreseeable future. Assuming this ban is relaxed at some point before early August the Wickham Festival will be ON. Given our August dates are still 20 weeks away we hope the peak of the pandemic will be over by then and you will be able to leave your homes and enjoy yourselves again listening to the likes of Van Morrison, The Waterboys and many more.
Van Morrison is to headline this year’s Wickham Festival. Continue reading “Van Morrison confirmed for Wickham Festival”
The legendary singer / songwriter / musician Van Morrison is to headline this year’s Wickham Festival. He’ll be appearing with his full band on Saturday 8th August performing classic hits such as Brown Eyed Girl, Moondance, Jackie Wilson Said, and Gloria. Van Morrison has just sold-out six nights at the London Palladium.
Over this weekend we’ve updated our website with another batch of artists within our Line Up section. There’s some great new additions we’re excited to welcome to Wickham Festival 2020. As ever there will be several debut performances as well as those that have entertained us before. We believe this is probably the strongest line-up in depth of any celtic / folk / roots / blues / rock festival this summer. What’s more, if you buy your tickets now we continue to be cheaper than Cambridge Folk Festival, Cornbury, Larmer Tree and Beautiful Days amongst others.
