Roger Chapman Family & Friends joins our Sunday Wickham Festival line up

We’ve added a few more artists to our line up section in the last month.  First off one of Britain’s most distinctive rock vocalists, Roger Chapman of ‘Family’, is confirmed for an appearance on Sunday 5th August.  He’ll be joining Richard Thompson, The Undertones, and The Blues Band amongst many others to make our final day a memorable one.

Roger Chapman, known as ‘Chappo’ by his legions of fans is best known for his involvement with Family.

We’re also pleased to announce another great band, The Black Kat Boppers, will have you dancing on Friday night.  They’re a hot boppin, groovin’ 4 piece group playing rockin, roots music with a guitar, double bass & stand up drums.

Our most recent addition to the line up is Ryan Young, an emerging young fiddle player from Scotland.  He’s one of a ‘new wave’ of young players bringing fresh and inventive ideas to traditional Scottish music.  He’ll be performing on Friday 3rd August 2018.

For those who enjoyed the Q&A with Tom Walker a.k.a. Jonathan Pie at last year’s Wickham Festival, here’s a video of the full show. Enjoy! Subject to confirmation we’re hoping to have Jonathan Pie’s full stand-up comedy show at this year’s Festival.

With less than 5 months to go, as ever we’re busy booking lots of family entertainment including a return visit by Hodman & Sally, the little people.  We’re planning to publish a lot more information about our other attractions / catering this year on our web site, so watch this space.

    Steve Harley was an audience favourite at Wickham Festival, and a delight to work with. Our thoughts are with his family and friends.
