We’ve already sold a record number of ‘earlybird’ tickets for 2019 so please hurry if you’ve yet to book. Prices rise on 1st September.

Re-live this year’s wonderful Wickham Festival, our official Wickham Festival video is now online…

You can also listen to interview highlights from Wickham Festival 2018 with Steve Harley, Alison Darley, Swill Odgers, John Illsley, Boo Hewerdine, Kate Rusby, Richard Thompson, and many others including myself.

Thank you to everyone who’s emailed about lost property. It’s taking a little while to reply to all emails so please bear with us, we will reply to everyone a.s.a.p.

    P.S. And we won't clash with either Cambridge or Cropredy!

    Lyn Jones x birthday days for us x

    Excellent thank you I still need to do a deal on leave 😱

    Excellent, will book time off now 🤟👍

    Good to know you're not clashing with Cropredy, but what about Bloodstock and Rebellion??? Bloodstock is normally Cropredy weekend, and Rebellion on Wickham weekend. So our of my four favourite festivals I can only attend two a year. Still, looking forward to this year!

    Claire, Sarah, Jo. Let’s all go next year. Husbands and kids in tow or not?

    Jonathan Coppock bet we book before you!

    Just look at these little beauties. They're being given to runners competing in the Wickham 10k the weekend before our Festival. Maybe we should produce something similar as a Festival-themed souvenir? ... See MoreSee Less

    great idea!

    Yes please! Or possibly some pink tshirts in more than just tiny sizes....

    Lovely medal. I am going to try to do a local parkrun on the Saturday of the festival is anyone else is interested -although I say this every year but haven’t managed to get up in time yet!

    Awesome x

    Anthony Charidge you up for this the weekend before Wickham??

    They are lovely, and will be enjoyed for a while, but if they are made of plastic are not good for the environment and will still be around for years and years after the fesival has ended.

    Oh I wish it was on during the festival! Too far to travel the weekend before

    Wendy Miles this has your name all over it 😘😘

    I can only find a Wickham 10k on the 18th August...

    Nice....
