The legendary singer / songwriter / musician Van Morrison is to headline this year’s Wickham Festival. He’ll be appearing with his full band on Saturday 8th August performing classic hits such as Brown Eyed Girl, Moondance, Jackie Wilson Said, and Gloria. Van Morrison has just sold-out six nights at the London Palladium.
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.
We hope you’ve all had a fanatics Christmas and enjoyed spending time with family and friends. We have just updated our website to include the listings for our 2020 line up so far. This is just the start as we have many more announcements to make in the coming months including our main headliners. Some notable acts include Leo Sayer, The South, and Jim Cregan.
We’re delighted to say that the wonderful Johnny Kalsi of The Dhol Foundation and The Afro Celt Sound System has agreed to be our first-ever Festival Patron. Johnny has performed at Wickham in several guises over the years and says he loves our Festival.
It’s that time of year again when you can try and can spot yourself in our new Wickham Festival 2019 Gallery. As the days are getting shorter it all seems a long while ago we were enjoying the summer so we hope they’ll stir some fond memories of this year’s event. 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…
