We hope you’ve all enjoyed a great Xmas with family and friends this last week. We’ve just published our Wickham Festival 2022 gallery and hope that some of you can spot a familiar face or two amongst the 190 pictures we captured this year. Whilst we have many images of the artists that appeared this year, it’s always the “The Real Stars of Wickham” ones we love the most. We believe these capture what is so different about Wickham Festival.
As ever we’d like to thank our friends at Striking Faces for the fantastic photography in our 2022 gallery.
Soon we will be updating our website with artists for 2023. For those of you that follow our social channels you’ll already know a few announcements we’ve made over the last month. Here’s a quick recap of some of our line up so far.
Friday 4th August 2023
On Friday 4th August 2023 we welcome back Eliza Carthy & The Restitute Band who last appeared in 2021. Friday is panning out to be a celebration of all things Irish as we welcome one of Ireland’s finest female singers, Mary Black, plus the great Irish fiddle player Frankie Gavin and legendary band De Dannan.
Saturday 5th August 2023
Sunday 6th August 2023
Thrice voted Scottish traditional music ‘Live Act of the Year’, top Scots Trad band Skerryvore will be headlining our Main Stage 2 on the Sunday. Their first visit to Wickham since 2016.
Also for Sunday, Toyah and her husband Robert Fripp of ‘King Crimson’ fame will be bringing ‘Toyah & Robert’s (Late) Sunday Lunch’ to Wickham. This is a welcome return for Toyah who appeared with The SAS Band in 2021. It’s a debut at Wickham for Robert Fripp. We can’t wait!
We’ve booked plenty of other artists across the weekend including the ever popular The South. Alison Wheeler proved a real crowd favourite at Wickham in 2021, visiting with all her family in tow. Once we confirm some further bookings we’ll update our Line Up section so watch this space.
Prices for our weekend tickets will be increasing on 1st January 2023, so please visit our tickets page to save money. We wish all our friends and patrons well and hope you have a very Happy New Year.
