All involved with Wickham Festival would like to wish you a very Merry Christmas and a very Happy & Healthy New Year. 2021 has been a tough year for many people. Let’s hope 2022 is better for us all. There’s been no rest for the Wickham Festival elves this last week. If you’ve been following our social channels, you’ll see we’ve added several new artists to our line up. Here’s a quick recap of new pages added to our website.
For the last month we’ve been posting on our Facebook & Twitter channels the artists that we’ve booked for Wickham Festival 2022 so far. We finally felt we’ve now got enough acts to update our line pages. Wickham Festival 2022 will be staged from Thursday 4th to Sunday 7th August 2022 on our newly grassed arena field … no more straw stubble! We’ll be returning to our normal site layout next year with two Big Tops and all our usual attractions on a more compact site than in 2021.

Good news & bad news on artists appearing at next month’s Wickham Festival.
Sadly The Waterboys; Lil’ Jimmy Reed; The Slambovian Circus of Dreams; and Gaz Brookfield have all had to cancel due to COVID travel restrictions on artists from overseas and resulting UK tour cancellations.
All these artists are already re-booked for Wickham 2022. If you have Sunday day tickets for this year’s Festival you can either still attend or rollover your Sunday tickets to 2022. The Waterboys will now be appearing on Sunday 7th August 2022.
