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.

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.

Thanks again to Guy Reece of Striking Faces fame and all our team of photographers for snapping some brilliant pictures to help us reminisce. If you see Guy next year remember to give him a Wickham “W” pose…
