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.

    We're sorry to report that London Irish band Neck will no longer be appearing at Wickham following the sad death of their frontman Leeson O'Keeffe from pancreatic cancer. 😢

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