Sponsors for Wickham Festival 2016

We’d like to show our appreciation for all the sponsors for Wickham Festival 2016.  We rely on sponsors to keep down the price of tickets so please support them wherever possible.

Sponsoring the main stage is All Time Grates, Hampshire’s premier wood burning stove showroom.  They offer an extensive range of wood burners from only the best manufacturers.  They’re located right in Wickham Village and only a short walk from the festival site.

We have three sponsors supporting The Wildlife Stage including two radio stations.  Firstly SAM FM broadcast to a stretch of the South Coast on 106 MHz & 106.6 MHz FM and on DAB Digital (on NOW South Hampshire).  The Breeze is an independent local radio station broadcasting to the Southampton, Portsmouth, Winchester and Four Marks areas of Hampshire on 97 – 108MHz.  Both stations broadcast from The Roman Landing studios in Kingsway, Southampton.

Our other sponsor for The Wildlife stage is The League Against Cruel Sports.  This is an animal welfare charity that campaigns against sports such as bullfighting, fox hunting and hare coursing. It also campaigns to ban the manufacture, sale and use of snares, for the regulation of greyhound racing and for an end to commercial game shooting and trophy hunting.  Bill Oddie will be speaking at Wickham Festival 2016 at 3pm, Saturday 6th on behalf of The League Against Cruel Sports.

The Quay West Cave is sponsored by Quay West Studios.  They offer a whole range of services to local musicians including full commercial production (running on Cubase), rehearsal rooms, music tuition, and equipment hire.  They are an integral part of the team behind Wickham Festival, organising the booking for The Wildlife Stage, Quay West Cave, and Acoustic Stage.

Providing our security and keeping us all safe are Civi Events, who are a community interest company.  They provide a safe and secure environment with friendly and approachable staff, perfect for our family-friendly atmosphere.

We thank all our sponsors who have supported their local community by enabling Wickham Festival to have grown into what it is today!  The festival is only three days away and we can’t wait for the music to start …
