Wickham Festival News

Latest updates to our website

With now less than a month until Wickham Festival 2017 our whole team is really getting into gear to bring you our best event yet.  As a festival organiser those weather reports are becoming ever more of interest.  C’mon Carol Kirkwood … give us all some good news!

We’d like to thank Erin Gracie for officially becoming our youngest ever performer at 8 years old.  She’ll be opening The Quay West Studio Stage on Friday 4th August 2017 at midday.  One day you could be boasting you saw her first ever festival appearance so please come and make it a packed audience to give her the “Wickham Welcome” she deserves.  We pride our festival on being a family occasion, young Erin is bravely proving that…

As ever in our news section we’ll point out some recent updates to our website since your last visit.  The following artist pages have been added in the last week:




Under our line up section there is a new comedy page here detailing the schedule for the all new new late night comedy tent.
