Wickham Festival News

Football fun at the festival

Renowned photographer Stuart Roy Clarke will be giving a very special talk at Wickham Festival.

He will be talking about his career taking pictures of every aspect of the Beautiful Game.

From Sunday League games in front of a handful of spectators to the biggest games and grounds in the world, Stuart has spent most of his working life capturing the essence of the sport.

He has produced thousands of iconic and evocative images which have been published in a series of artistic coffee table books which can be viewed here.

The talk takes place on the Valley Stage at 11am on Saturday when Stuart and co-author John Williams will be taking a fascinating look at the game.

It will be followed by a mini sea shanty festival down near the storytelling tent at noon and don’t forget the late night comedy.

    Saw the wonderful Skinny Lister at the Wedgewood rooms last night, loved their set at Wickham last year... Well worth bringing back for 2020!

    Just back from seeing Skinny Lister in Aldershot, they were awesome all over again, please.... if they're touring, get them to swing by 😍🌑

    Hope they play during the weekend.

    Hmm, not a fan, but you can’t please all of the people all of the time! πŸ€— But I agree, Tom Robinson was just fantastic, one of those unforgettable moments. Can we persuade him to come back next year? πŸ˜‰ 🎢 x

    Omg can’t wait to see these again they played the first time we came to wickham festival xxxx

    Megson would be a great booking

    Maybe it's just me, but as good as all the musicians you've announced are, Wickham doesn't appear to be putting anything much new or different on the bill. A lot of repetition from other years, which is a shame as it has been a festival I've really enjoyed.

    Fabulous! !!!!

    In the interest of equality can we also have ‘The North’ ‘The East’ and The West’ ? Or is that being too Equalitarian ? Whatever, I thought Graham Nash this year was the icing on the friggin’ cake. Just superb !

    So excited they were amazing when I last saw them!

    Yay, they were fab last time they were there!

    With the line-up so far we won’t want to work next year 😁 Please can we be near the stage again πŸ˜‰

    Wow, looking forward to this!

    Brill, love them - thanks

    Brilliant last time

    Great. Love them.

    Excellent!

    Love these!! Good news

    Hoorah!

    Hooray!

    Brilliant

    Viv fingers crossed they're on the weekend!

    Tom Robinson please

    Jim Irvine, I am a happy bunny πŸ‘πŸ‘

    I see Sharon Shannon has been booked for the Cropredy Festival. Given that she's in the country then, PLEASE try and book her for Wickham - she'd be brilliant (oh & how about Richard Thompson too!).
