Wow it’s just over a month until this year’s festival gets going and we can’t wait to get welcome you all to Wickham Festival 2019. It promises to be our best ever event with so many incredible artists to look forward to and what we hope you’ll agree are improvements everywhere to make your experience better than ever before.
Great News! We’ve secured an extra 28 acres of well-drained, grassed fields with excellent access via a tarmac road running the entire length of the fields meaning that, for the first time, everyone can camp on grass at this year’s Wickham Festival whether you’re in a tent, caravan, camper van, motorhome or any combination of them all. No more stubble! No more mud, hooray!
