Wickham Festival News

2023 stage times added to the website

We are pleased to say that performance times for all four stages have now been added to our website and can be viewed in our line up section. We’ve tried our best to avoid clashes between similar artists.

We’ve also uploaded all our stage times here on Clashfinder to help plan your visit. This is a printable timetable where you can see what is happening on all stages at the same time.

Please head on over to Clashfinder and get planning!

You can highlight acts you’re interested in seeing and much more. Instructions are provided here. As many of you know you’ll always leave Wickham Festival having discovered new artists, often from the smaller stages with local artists.

We’ve also updated some of our information pages. Our Other Attraction page lists what else you can find on site apart from the music. This includes The Digital Funfair, Fit Up Circus, The Magic Teapot, Flying Buttresses, OLB Inflatables, Folk Orc Workshops, The Travelling Talesman, Surreal McCoy, Bug Beats Disco and many others.

We’ve added a new page for those interested in exploring Wickham village and its history.

On Sunday we’re hoping many of you will join us for Wickham Big Sing. At midday The Tuneless Choir will be on Main Stage 1 to lead us in singing some classic tunes like Amarillo, Daydream Believer, and Under the Moon of Love.

In 2022 The Tuneless Choir proved Wickham loves to have a sing-along, so we invited them back for 2023!

This would be a great fun way to start your day and get in in the mood for the fantastic line up we have on Sunday. You can even pull up the lyrics on your phone by clicking here.

Also on Sunday don’t forget we endorse “Kilt Sunday” for those of you that like to dress up. So if wearing a kilt and singing is your thing, you love Sunday at Wickham!

Pack your kilt for Kilt Sunday
