Wickham Festival News

Thank you to all our supporters!

We should have been enjoying the first evening at Wickham Festival 2020 right now with Spike’s All-Stars about to take to the stage as our opening headliners. Just to rub it in we’re forecast a glorious weekend of sunshine over this weekend.

Rather than dwell on what could have been we’d like to thank all the wonderful people that have supported us, both by attending our festival over the years and especially over the last few weeks via our Crowdfunder campaign. Reading your messages of support and seeing the total continue to increase gives us huge motivation and a feeling of pride. At time of writing a whopping £21,560 has been raised!

We are so, so grateful for all your support. The Crowdfunder is still open – we’re now hoping to hit our stretch target of £30k which will help secure the future of our Festival for many years to come. There are some fantastic rewards for all who contribute ranging from festival goodies to your own bar or luxury loo at next year’s Festival.

Wonderful people enjoying the sunset at Wickham Festival 2018.

Thank you also to all of you who have chosen to rollover your 2020 tickets to 2021. That too is a huge help to us at this difficult time. To those of you who have sought a refund, please bear with us. We have already processed around 50% of the refund requests but it’s a big task for one volunteer so please be patient. We hope to process all remaining refund requests within the next 7-10 days.

We’re delighted to say that almost all our 2020 artists are now confirmed for 2021. Our 2021 dates are Thursday 5th to Sunday 8th August 2021. The full line-up can be viewed here. Day & Weekend Season Tickets are now on sale at bargain 2020 prices for a limited time.

We know via our Facebook page that some of you are even staging your own garden based *Stay-at-Wick-home* festival. We hope you all have a fabulous weekend, stay safe, stay positive … and we’ll see you this time next year!

Finally over the last few months we’ve been posting some videos from Wickham Festival 2019 so please check out our YouTube channel.

    P.S. All who've already bought tickets or rolled-over 2020 tickets to 2021 will also be included in the Draw. It's our way of thanking you for your continued support.

    Looking forward to the festival so much.

    I received my t shirt which is stunning! Are you selling any yet?

    Can't wait for this year's festival. 😊😊

    Thank you for all your support during 2020. Let's hope 2021 is much better for everyone and we can all meet again at Wickham next August. In the meantime, stay safe, stay well and enjoy the best festive season you can. ... See MoreSee Less
