History walks at Wickham Festival on Friday 4th & Saturday 5th

Led by expert volunteer guides, join us on our Wickham History Walks.  We know there are some history buffs that would appreciate this one and a half hour stroll around Wickham learning about our village. Wickham is special not just because of the Festival; but for its Market Square (one of the largest in England), our historic buildings,  the Mill that owes its existence to the US Navy and much more!  Wickham History Walks take place on:

FRIDAY, 4th AUGUST at 10.30 and SATURDAY, 5th AUGUST AT 10.30 – the walks cost £3.

Please book in advance through our friends at http://wickhamhistory.org.uk or at the Wickham Village Table at the Festival. Places are limited. No unaccompanied children under 16.  Apparently Wickham of yesteryear doesn’t take kindly to vagrants & vagabonds …

This is a fantastic opportunity to learn all about the rich history of Wickham village from local historians that are passionate about the place they call home.

There’s a lot to explore outside of the festival site.  Music starts at 5pm Thursday 3rd and 12 noon Friday through to Sunday.  So why not make the most of the mornings and discover our picturesque surroundings?  Please stop by the Wickham Village Table if you’re heading out and have any questions that require some well educated local knowledge.  They’re here to help you make that memory of visting Wickham with a walk your family will look back on years later.

Here is a post from last year of someone making the most of their visit to Wickham.
