It’s just a week to the start of this year’s Wickham Festival and today we’ve been onsite all day on the hottest day of the year so far. It’s been blazing sunshine as we commence our 2018 site build. Phew … it’s been a scorcher!
Don’t forget that whilst we share our images of getting everything ready, you can do the same here with #wickhamfestival. How are your preparations going?
This time next week the legendary rock icon and the original Cockney Rebel, Steve Harley, will be making it a summer night to remember on our Main Stage 1 – The Valley Stage. As he says … here comes the sun…
Earlier today this is how the stage looked, we’ve a little way to go yet!
Whilst over on our other main stage we welcome back our bhangra based house band The Dhol Foundation! After several daytime appearances at Wickham we thought we’d ask them to headline on Thursday evening for something a little different. If you can dance with such energy during the day, let’s see what happens after an ale or two. In case you need reminding of last year…
