We are pleased to say that all performance times on both our main stages have now been added to our website and can be viewed in our line up section.

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!
