Fans of Galician bagpipe specialist Carlos Nunez can get a free upgrade to VIP status for his show at the Wickham Festival if they are also attending his show the previous night.

The renowned Spanish celtic musician is playing the Chapel Sessions not-for-profit event at Royal Victoria Country Park in Netley on Wednesday August 5.

People who buy for both shows will get a free VIP pass on production of their Southampton show ticket on arrival at Wickham.

Fans are advised it is worth seeing the man dubbed “Hendrix of the bagpipes” in two completely different settings especially with the free upgrade at Wickham.

    The Campaign has been in all the national newspapers this week. There's a great article by Lorraine Kelly in today's Sun.

    It’s hard to look at pictures of these senseless killings, and so easy to walk past a stall such as this when enjoying our musical freedoms at your wonderful festival. But these beautiful creatures now have no freedom and we applaud your stance on trying to do something to stop this appalling animal trophy tourism. Wickham will always be our favourite festival. 👏

    We'll be visiting the stall. Excellent, thank you Wickham xxx

    Well done wickham

    We will definitely be visiting the stall!

    Even putting cruelty, suffering and animal loss to one side. Is this now morally acceptable behaviour? No, it isn’t. We are but guests on this planet and will be gone eventually but while we are here is this really how we should be treating the only home we have?

    We'll see you there... this is despicable

    Great cause. Take a look at this recent senseless killing of a magnificent elephant that we are trying raise awareness of too: Desert Elephants & Friends Voortrekker the Desert Elephant

    Will do.

    Baffles me how beastly people can hold down a relationship and I cant ...I don't even kill animals then gloat lovingly over their lifeless corpses... maybe I'm going about things wrong...!

    Can’t wait as love this festival, one thing I would ask is have you sorted the issue of entrances and exits to the stages/ tents being blocked by camping chairs as last year was an accident waiting to happen.

    Looking forward to our fourth consecutive year this year 👍. We've had torrential rain and mud (2017 or was it 2016?) and we've had scorching sunshine (2018). Whatever the weather we'll be there and having a fabulous time ⛺️☂️😎🌞🍹🍻🎹🎸🎪

    Fingers crossed the weather improves! We'll still have fun anyway, but come on the sunshine!

    See you there! 😎

    Found it eventually on a link to Clashfinder right at the bottom of the page.

    Keifer and lindesfarne overlapping, what shall I do
