Wickham Festival – COVID-19 UPDATE

Hello! The Prime Minister has announced the closure of all public entertainment venues for the foreseeable future. Assuming this ban is relaxed at some point before early August the Wickham Festival will be ON. Given our August dates are still 20 weeks away we hope the peak of the pandemic will be over by then and you will be able to leave your homes and enjoy yourselves again listening to the likes of Van Morrison, The Waterboys and many more.

More artists announced for 2020

Over this weekend we’ve updated our website with another batch of artists within our Line Up section. There’s some great new additions we’re excited to welcome to Wickham Festival 2020. As ever there will be several debut performances as well as those that have entertained us before. We believe this is probably the strongest line-up in depth of any celtic / folk / roots / blues / rock festival this summer. What’s more, if you buy your tickets now we continue to be cheaper than Cambridge Folk Festival, Cornbury, Larmer Tree and Beautiful Days amongst others.

    About 2/3 of those artists have been epic. I'd have included Kate Rusby, Frank Turner and the Treacherous Orchestra.

    Great memories. Definitely Carlos Núñez was our favourite artist and one we were proud to perform with.

    Ferocious Dog, Tom Robinson, Tankus the Henge, and the fabulous Grace Petrie.

    4 years Back with Roger Taylor! ❤️

    Police Dog Hogan would fit in great!

    I loved Le Vent du Nord last year. I know you’ve had them many times, because Jenni knows the lads well, but it was my first time seeing them and they are just amazing.

    I recognize an awful lot of those photos :-)

    Loved Kiefer Sutherland and his band, also 10cc, Ralph Mctell and Graham Nash

    loved bellowhead ,jools holland, richard thompson, proclaimers, frank turner,lindisfarne, graham nash and gilbert. would love to see jack savoretti ,marillion,

    Roger Taylor with S AS Band. ....were amazing!!!!

    Ryan Young, Graham Nash. Tom Robinson

    Nils Lofgren

    Tony Hadley.

    Did anyone first look at this picture and think Luke Skywalkers lightsabre was cutting an old blokes head off, or was that just me?

    Steve Harley and Cockney Rebel

    Ah. Lovely. See you again inshallah.🙏🏻

    I'm Ferg... could have been a subtle request that I play there next time round !?! 😉 www.facebook.com/nothingconcrete1

    Haha I love it! 😂😂 Wickham Music Festival I was looking for Fergus Cameron !!! Him and Sid disappeared but we found them chilling at their camel camp tent 😎😂 xx

    We're going through some photos of last year's Festival and this one puzzled us.

    I dunno ... but I saw this on 'Fans of Jackie Magazine ... it's from 1971.

    Well it's Ferg... Init? Lol

    No! I'm Ferg! Or was it Spartacus? 😂

    Ferg Al Sharkey

    Was she wearing that wig for a bet though?

    I remember, she was amazing 💕thanks Wickham fest! Xx

    Still such a beautiful voice. Wickham is my very favourite festival.

    Loved seeing her ❤

    I saw her recently at G Live, she was amazing !

    Not bad for an 80 year old.

    A highlight. Loved seeing her live and hearing her stories of Leonard Cohen!

    Wasn't expecting anything, or from Nash's set, but they were both absolute highlights for me, not just here but for 2019. REAL professionals...

    She was amazing!

    Geoff Bland I was there - amazing!

    Brilliant set!

    Reduced me to tears x

    Mine too!
