The stage is set! The Big Tops are up. All we need now is our audience! If you’re travelling to Wickham this weekend we hope the following information is useful.
For Sat Nav use PO17 5HD. Click here for Google Maps.
All our campsites open from 10am Wednesday. Please do not arrive before 10am as we don’t want to clog up the road network for miles around. On arrival at Wickham please follow the signs for ‘Caravans/Motorhomes Camping’, ‘Tented Camping’, ‘Disabled Camping’ and ‘Mixed Camping’ (for people wishing to camp together in both tents and vehicles). The weather forecast for Wednesday is not great and we’ve already had a lot of rain on our fields so it may take a little longer than usual to position everyone on our camping fields. Please bear with us if you have to wait a little while. Our volunteer stewards will do their best to get everyone in as quickly as possible.
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’re delighted to confirm that comedy is returning to Wickham Festival for 2023. This will start after music on the main stages finishes at 23.00. Mike Cox will be the MC for all nights on our comedy stage (Thursday through to Saturday). Mike has been performing comedy since 2011 and quickly made his mark on the comedy scene with his sharp-witted observational style which saw him crowned South Coast Comedian of the Year in 2014.
The host of the multi-award-winning Folk on Foot podcast, Matthew Bannister, will set off from Wickham Festival on a 180-mile sponsored walk to raise money for the charity Help Musicians. Continue reading “Wickham Festival supporting The Big Walk”
It’s just over two months until we open our gates and welcome everyone to Wickham once more. We’ve added Midge Ure, Afro Celt Sound System, Steve Wickham & Ray Coen, Virginia Kettle, and Daisy Chute to our 2023 line up.
Since we announced our day line ups last week we’ve added some new artists across the weekend.
For those of you that have being waiting to buy day tickets, we’ve just updated our line up section day pages. There are a few artists that have not been allocated a day yet, but the majority have all now been updated.
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.
Phew, what a scorcher we just had! A huge THANK YOU to everyone that attended Wickham Festival 2022. This year was probably our best ever, thanks in no small part to four days of glorious sunshine. There was hardly a cloud in sight for the whole weekend … so much better than last year’s rain and mud! Continue reading “Thank You & 2023 Earlybird Tickets”
