A beautiful rural part of Hampshire…
Wickham provides a wonderful setting for our Festival. It is a lovely village in which to spend a weekend enjoying excellent music, fine food, great company and lovely surroundings.
Set in rolling downland two miles north of Fareham in Hampshire, the village of Wickham has a picturesque Georgian Market Square, scenic water meadows, the historic Chesapeake Mill, plus attractive church and village buildings.
There are also excellent olde worlde shops to browse enabling you to buy beautifully crafted gifts or clothing as well as all your festival essentials such as food, drink, toiletries – and sun cream!
There is a also a wide range of bistros, restaurants, wine bars, tea-rooms and country pubs where you can relax with a drink, enjoy a delicious dinner – or sit down to a wonderful cooked breakfast to recover from the night before! There is also easy access to rural walks and the gorgeous Meon river valley. The festival site is a five-minute stroll from the village.
Wickham is a very friendly and welcoming village with excellent road links to the M27, A3, M3 & A32. The village is just a couple of miles from the town of Fareham and is also within easy reach of Winchester, Portsmouth and Southampton with their many visitor attractions.
There will be a free festival shuttle bus service every 15 minutes from 9.00am to 5.00pm on Thursday, Friday, and Sunday (NO BUS ON SATURDAY) between our festival campsites and Wickham Square. Or if a morning stroll is your thing, south of the main event area is Blind Lane. If you cross Blind Lane into the field opposite (currently planned to be the “Motor Homes & Caravan” area) and keep heading south through that area (downhill) there’s a short-cut without road traffic into the square. The walk from the festival site to Wickham village is about 20 minutes (although up hill if coming from the village).
