Wickham Festival News

This time next week – Thursday 3rd August 2017

This time next week we would have just watched KT Tunstall take to the stage at 8pm. With five studio albums released internationally there is a lot to look forward to including tracks from her top 10 album released in 2016, KIN…

Why not come prepared, her merchandise can be purchased here.

Earlier in the evening Boo Hewerdine would have performed on The All Time Grates Stage at 5pm. Over the last 20 years he has been recognised as one of Britain’s most consistently accomplished songwriters. In 1995 his track “Patience of Angels” brought him a nomination for the Ivor Novello Award…

To close The All Time Grates Stage next Thursday at 21.30 we’ll be looking forward to the return of 10cc. This will be a fabulous act to finish off our opening night.

With only 7 days to go our site build has begun in the glorious Wickham sunshine.

Be sure to join us next Thursday for a great evening of music and fun.  We’ve been getting great previews for the festival including this article on the Original Rock website.  See you in 7 days!!!
