This really couldn’t get any better in the build up to Wickham Festival 2019. As many of you know each year our friends at Wickham History Society arrange history walks around Wickham village, but guess who is a self-professed massive history nerd? Only our main headliner, Frank Turner!!! Check out his podcasts launching this July just in time for Wickham Festival…
How cool is that? A brand new album on the horizon. We’re all looking forward to his well known tracks but quite possibly he’ll showcase some as yet unreleased material. So hopefully we’ll get a little preview of his 8th album, No Man’s Land. We already know the first single will be called Sister Rosetta…
This looks set to be a classic Frank masterpiece, we can’t wait to hear more. The 12 songs about historical women and song about his mum will be:
- Jinny Bingham’s Ghost
- Sister Rosetta
- I Believed You, William Blake
- A Perfect Wife
- Silent Key
- Eye Of The Day
- The Death Of Dora Hand
- The Graveyard Of The Outcast Dead
- The Lioness
- The Hymn Of Kassiani
- Rescue Annie
- Rosemary Jane
Copies can be pre-orderd here , but who knows maybe you’ll get more of a preview on Saturday 3rd. To keep with the history theme our Wickham History Walks take place on Friday 2nd & Saturday 3rd August at 10:30am and cost only £3.
So why not explore the village on our Wickham History Walks? Meet some Wickham ghosts or the pub where horses were regulars and much more. Please book through the contact form on the Wickham History Society website to make the most of your visit. Exploring historic Wickham Square and all the local shops is a great way to start your day and listening to Frank Turner will be an even better way to end it!
Don’t forget that if you’re a keen walker there is a Thursday daytime walk before the festival starts.
