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!

    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

    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!
