Wickham Festival – COVID-19 UPDATE Monday 1st June, 2020

With the sun shining, lockdown easing, open-air markets & other venues opening, we thought you might like an update on this year’s Wickham Festival.

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.

    They were brilliant, great fun, all very talented, and very funny! Loved the hats! 💕

    Loved them!

    First time I'd seen them at Wickham last year & they were fantastic, so entertaining 👍

    Was another amazing performance, Spooky Men just get better every time I see you!

    They were absolutely amazing, you must get them back.

    My favourite Singing group. Please have them back! 🎼🤓

    Finally had my leave confirmed for next year so ticket ordered. So looking forward to having something to look forward to - if you get my drift 😀

    Brilliant. So much to look forward to.

    Most excellent ... as we had (yet another) weekend with nowhere to go, we staged a mini wickham festival in our garden, the crowd went wild ... 🕺🎶💃
