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.

The Government have announced their intention to allow large gatherings including music festivals to be staged without restrictions from June 21st onwards. This means our Wickham Festival in August can go-ahead as planned.
The award-winning Scottish folk band Breabach, current holders of the Album of the Year award, will become the first band from Scotland to embark upon a virtual tour in 2021, covering some of their favourite venues and festivals in the UK – including Wickham. Supported by grant funding from Creative Scotland, they have teamed up with BAFTA winning animator Cat Bruce to create a unique performance for a virtual tour between 11th February and 6th March 2021. Each of the five band members has written brand new music, which has been set to a new animation – Dùsgadh – specifically created for the tour.
Hello and a Happy New Year! Let’s hope that with the roll-out of the vaccine, 2021 is a much better year than 2020. Certainly the prospects for our Festival being staged as normal next August look much, much better than they did a few weeks ago.
