Stage times announced for The Quay West Cave and Acoustic Stages

For the first time there will be four stages at Wickham Festival this year.  We’ve just added stage times for our Quay West Cave, sponsored by Quay West Studios, and Acoustic Stages on our line up pageThere’s a huge variety of artists including Vincent Treacey who will be appearing on the Acoustic Stage on Saturday. He took a 10 year break from music and has only recently come back.

Another one to watch is Alice Milburn, a 16 year old from Southsea with a bluesy jazzy voice.  Last year she sang at the Albert Hall for an audience including David Cameron and The Queen.  She will be performing on the Acoustic Stage on Saturday.

Tom and Ash are back and their extraordinary duo of intricate, ‘obnoxiously talented’ classical guitar techniques has consistently impressed. They always deliver this up with the minimum of fuss in a bizarrely relaxed style whilst their guitar work is impeccable.  They will be appearing on the Acoustic Stage on Sunday.

We welcome Calvin Thomas to the Quay West Cave on Sunday.  He has a stunningly beautiful voice, and has been playing recently on tour in the West Country alongside festival favourite ‘Beans on Toast’.

He is one of three up and coming artists we have this year coming from Plymouth. The others are Jack Cookson and Alice Gullick.  Jack was nominated for this year’s Young Folk Awards and is touring Europe with Hattie Briggs.  Alice Gullick has worked with Calvin and Jack in the past on several tracks and also looks to be blossoming into a stunningly well-regarded voice on the youth folk scene. This embed is a collabortion of Calvin & Jack …

    My new favourite band! Saw them at Cropredy this weekend too. I then bumped into Sharkey and RJ on the field yesterday, they were enjoying the festval, and they spoke very highly of their experience at Wickham too.

    My discovery of the festival. They are absolutely brilliant, totally got me (and the lady wife!).

    Not even heard of this band, but am now following them,great performance ,definately one of my highlights x

    Absolutely brilliant. Hill Billy Pink Floyd. Please invite them back.

    Great band, one of many highlights 👍🤘

    I couldn't decide what I made of them I initially. Then after three or four songs I think I decided I liked them. They were perplexing 😁. But overall, yeah..... pretty good. I'd definitely watch them again 👍

    Tans Slambovian bio polar express 😀

    Brilliant really loved their sound

    Loved them at Wickham. Once I find out where Slambovia is I'm going to pay a visit 😉

    Enjoyed their set but it was loud!

    Great band

    They were fantastic 👍

    Love them xx

    Matt John these are the guys I was telling you about 😁

    Purchased ours this eve online. Last time we were there was in 2015 when Billy Bragg and the Proclaimers were there. Loved every minute of it. So excited for 2023 🤗

    We managed to find a cheque book!! Sent ours off already!! Can’t wait!!

    What's a cheque? I know a few Poles and a Ukrainian but not these cheques? I can PayPal or Google pay

    Found my cheque book, the last cheque I wrote was also for Wickham. And the one previous!

    Bought before we left the site!

    Ours is in the post

    Got mine before I left. Can’t wait!

    Who has a cheque book these days and I certainly wouldn’t post cash. Shame 😞

    Posted ours off already!

    Should add that not a speck of litter was left behind thanks to Smudger's amazing litter-picking crew.

    It was fantastic and no trouble at all and I live right across from it! Well done to all of you, look forward to next year x

    I walked past yesterday. We love having such a great festival within walking distance of our house and also nice to see it back to normal.

    Thanks for all the effort you put in. Much appreciated 🙏 it wouldn't be here without your good self taking the time to stage it. Great times and memories. Fortunate to see both sides of the festival

    Was great fun. Thank you. Tickets bought for next year already.

    Really enjoyed and have purchased my early bird tickets for 2023 👌👌

    Well done Wickham gang!!! At least you don't have to contend with discarded tents etc as per Glastonbury!

    Thank you for another brilliant festival,have already purchased tickets for next year. xx

    Was great thanks to all who make this festival work so well

    Absolutely loved it. First time we've been. Great bands, especially the Saw Doctors, but I'm a little biased, and everything was so well organised, including the weather 😆

    A wonderful weekend, thank you everyone so much. You were all amazing.

    Amazing weekend thanks for the fun, laughter and music

    Thanks to all involved. Loved our tent neighbours who were litter pickers from aardvark. Cheque in post for 2023. I CAN'T WAIT!!!!!

    The breakdown is the hard bit - adrenaline doesn't pump in quite the same way as on build-up. But four days.... wow!!! Get some serious Zzzzs.

    It was brilliant, saw lots of old friends and made more new one,see you next year.

    Thanks so much everyone who made Wickham Festival a fantastic Event to attend see you all next year ! x

    What a fantastic festival - looking forward to next year with Claire Hartt-Palmer, Paul Jerome, Alison Jerome, Deanna Gaze, Mark Gaze and many others!

    Thank you Wickham, thank you artistes, See you next year

    Brilliant! Well done to everyone - it was an amazing weekend! Do you have a list of any ‘left behind’ items? One of my friends lost a bunch of keys and would love to be reunited with them!!

    Great festival. Thanks for all your hard work.

    Fabulous festival, thanks very much! 👏👏👏 Look forward to it next year! 😀😀😀

    So much happiness right there ❤️ Next year…

    Very impressed with the infrastructure of the show. Such hard work by all. If I have one complaint, it's that the portaloos in the campervan field weren't replenished with paper and sanitizer as often as I was told. I had my own facilities but occasionally used the public ones and took my own supplies. Just a thought.

    Thank you for another fab weekend 😊

    One word…… AMAZING…. Booked for next year!!
