At the bottom of our main line up page there are also times for the free concert at The Wickham Centre on Wednesday evening.  Don’t forget during the festival they will be offering a cooked breakfast with a pint for only £5!  There’s also free phone charging and WiFi to make this a great way to start your day away from the camp site.

Or alternatively  there is a Farm Shop and Tea Room at Westlands Farm adjacent to our tented camping fields where you can obtain milk, bread, eggs etc. plus breakfasts and snacks through the day.

We’re sure this year’s festival will be our best yet.  We’ve already had some great write ups which underlines this.  To wrap up all our updates anyone looking for accommodation, The Old Forge Inn less than half a mile from our Festival site still has a couple of rooms available.  The bucking bronco will be back at Wickham this year along with the Digital Funfair, Solar-Powered Cinema, Zorbs, Caving, Theatre, Storytelling, Lego Tent, Games Tent and a host of other attractions for all ages.

By popular request, we’ve just added an extra food stall providing vegan and gluten-free catering for those who want it.  Finally, please remember to subscribe on iTunes! We’ll be uploading goodies during the festival, and you can hear highlights from previous years.

    Great stuff so far, thank you! Only a handful of acts and I'm already worrying about clashes in stage times ;) Got one of the early EarlyBird tickets and Glamping ...so very happy so far...this'll be my 5th Wickham, you never disappoint :)

    The line up is looking so good!

    Had legit no idea who he was last time but dad said id like him so i went and listened. Laughed so hard my ribs hurt cant wait for round 2

    Please, I beg you, don't put Tankus and John on different stages at the same time ;)

    How about Hawkwind great festival band.

    *Tankus* the Henge!

    Brilliant, I look forward to seeing him.

    Madder Mill Molly I think there'll be a few of us at this one 🙂

    OMG ... this is shaping up to be the best line up ever! Will have Beware of the Flowers as an earworm for the foreseeable future, but that's a price worth paying 😁

    Martin Turners Wishbone Ash, Focus, Turin Brakes, Los Pacaminos, Albert Lee

    Wickham Music Festival Any chance of booking Attila too? And yes, I know I'm being greedy

    Is he bringing Wild Willy Barrett? 😳😳😳

    oh joy, rock royalty

    Wickham Music Festival - thank you again. Any chance of The Devil's Prefects and JollyRoger?

    Colin Foster

    How about the Longest John’s The Longest Johns also Carlos Núñez back again with a brand new album #CelticSea which he’ll be showcasing at Celtic Connections

    Paul Day 😁

    Any chance of getting Doris Brendel. Rick Parfitt Jnr and The RPJ Band. Clive Jackson. Nell Bryden, or even Kim Thompsett

    Track Dogs said they hadn't heard yet - but were up for performing again. Is that possible?
